It's A Fair Question

"Baby Girl, are you going to be a good girl for Mommy today?"

"Yes. Are you going to be a good mommy today?"

Ha ha! That's a good question!

My baby's wrapped up in, "No, you MY baby!"

bwahahahahaha!!!

Has she had to put you in time-out yet?

As a matter of fact, Chag, she has. And it was justified. We have an explicit "No raspberries on the face" rule so that she won't do it to the baby. I did it to her last week when we were playing. She looked at me square in the eye and said"Mommy, you need to go to time out. Right now."

So I did.

My husband and I made a deal last year that if we ever swear in front of her that we will go to the corner.

Hahahahaha....you've trained her well. I love it!

That's some fancy critical thinking there.

BTW what we do around our students is use British phrases like bloody, bleeding and sod off. We tell each other to sod off, not our students. We just think that.

Well??? ARE you going to be a good mommy? Actually, I should ask myself that very question. I'll get back to you with the answer.

What a smart little thing!

MFR--I tried the whole "Bloody" and "Bleeding" thing, but she kept running up to me with her doctor kit, thinking I was hurt.
Wordgirl--Not so sure about the good mommy thing. There are some good days, though.

I wonder who she'd call if you said no.

I love it when they apply our rules for them to US. Sigh.

Gotta love the kid logic. You're right - it is a fair question!

My son has had to put me in time out too. I honestly didn't want to come out. Man, I needed the break!

Kristen said...

Damn, I hate it when toddlers use our own phrases on us. Stupid smart kids.

MIM said...

Too smart for YOUR own good!

So what did you tell her???

Shrinking Violet said...

I want to get to know that kid!

Misfit Hausfrau said...

I told her I would.

Mary P. said...

LMAO... Oh you're in such trouble! This child is way too smart!

Misfit Hausfrau said...

Tell me about it, Mary.
