Conversation while pushing kids to day care this morning in the stroller:
Me: Isabelle, Baz if you two don't stop arguing I'm going to turn this stroller around right now and you won't get to go play with your friends today...
(yes... hanging head in shame... I actually said that)
Isabelle: But Moooommmmmeeeee, Baz won't stop saying "Ummmmmm" And I didn't even say a bad word at all or anything!
Me: Well, Isabelle, you're just going to have to ignore him
Isabelle: But Mommmmmeeeeee... I can't
Me: Well, Isabelle, you're going to have to learn how to ignore him. He's not going to stop. Annoying you is like his job. Trust me, I know. It's just what little brothers do.
Me: Baz. NOW you're going to have to stop saying that.
Baz: But Mommy, you said so, it's my job!
Lesson Learned: children take EVERYTHING literally.
