Some common sense -
Lately we are in the land of "WHY?". Every question she asks turns into a "why?" question. It drives me crazy sometimes. After about 15 why questions about the SAME thing the following conversation took place:
Me: "You cannot eat socks because they are not food"
A: "Why? Why not? Why?"
Me: "Because you may not."
Me: "Because I said so!"
A: "Well...don't said so."
Yesterday we were grocery shopping. While at the deli counter waiting for our meat this took place:
A: "I don't want to hear you whine Mom."
Me: "I am not whining."
A: "I like your talking voice, not your whining voice. You need to choose a happy heart Mom!"
Me: Laughter and..."at least I know you do hear me when I talk to you..." (if only she put it into practice :-)
