On the ride to school yesterday the question of the day was:
- How many F's are there in "Enough is Enough"? And before I could answer he announced 20, which was fine because at that point I didn't want to explain gh=f.
While playing at a friends house the statement of the day was:
- "You should really rethink that." This came out when his best friends brother started pounding on the floor with a plastic hockey stick.
It does my heart good that he's actually listening, but I'm not sure I like hearing my own words--LOL.
One more thought on parenting. When I was a kid, if my mom was still cleaning the house when we got home from school, it was a sign we were getting company. But, we knew better than to ask who was coming over, this would really piss mom off. It was a sure way of hearing, "What do you think I only clean the house when we're having company?" So as I'm cleaning today getting ready for Thursday, my son just asked, "Mommy, you're cleaning who's coming over?" I chose not to be annoyed.
"The Mother's Curse." It really works.
