Random moments from the day:
We have all the usual fights about eating food here in our house. One kid likes spaghetti, the other two hate it; one kid loves tuna casserole, the other one threw it up in the garbage can. I admit it’s hard not to respond to that with a sarcastic mom comment. (Especially when, you know, you’re, like, totally a sarcastic mom.) SuperBoy is learning to try to kiss up to me, even if he doesn’t like the food. His new phrase with every meal is, “Good eats, Mom.”
Our 6 year old daughter burped really loud at the table the other night. There was this long pause, and then she said, “well, at least I have one talent.”
Actual fight overheard today:
SuperBoy – the 4yo – at the top of his lungs to his 6yo sister: YOU ARE MY MINION!!!
6yo: I AM NOT YOUR MINION!!!
SuperBoy: YOU ARE THE MINION AND YOU ARE MINE!
6yo: MOOOOOMMMMMMMM, HE SAYS I’M HIS MINION AND I’M NOT!!!
