Kids are Parrots

This morning Matthew was trying to put on his coat to go out, but the sleeves were inside out. He looked up at me and declared: "Mommy? This toat dri me NUTS!" It took me two seconds to realize that I must say "This is driving me NUTS" fairly frequently!!

I did such a naughty thing the other day. Josiah had slept horribly that night - up for two hours, in the night, for no obvious reason, and he was unpleasant. Neither of us were happy with him. So, the next day, I had him call and leave a message for Eric at work. I told him what to say:

Me: Say I'm sorry
Josiah: I sorry
Me: Say cause I'm a jackass
Josiah: I a jackass

I was rolling on the floor at this point. I knew this would alleviate some of Eric's frustration with him. And it did! :-)
