Okay, sometimes I find it humorous.... sometimes just down right annoying. Does that make me a bad mom?
A conversation I just had with my kids:
Cal: What's this big bow for?
Me: Nothing... leave it alone.
Cal: But I want to see it.
Patti: (walking in to the conversation) What big bow? What's is for?
Me: (thinking that if I give them a quick explanation, they'll leave it alone) A present.
Patti: What kind of present?
Me: (Ugh) A wedding present.
Patti: What kind of wedding present? (in other words, what is it?)
Me: (UGH) It's a ___________ (just in case they read my blog).
Patti: For who?
Cal: Wedding? What's a wedding?
Me: (hmm?) Ummmm..... it's when a boy and girl get married and become husband and wife.
Me: (to Patti) It's for Ben and Regan.
Patti: Is one a big boy or little boy?
Me: Definitely a big boy.
Patti: Is the other one a big boy or little boy?
Me: A big girl.
Cal: Are they coming to our house?
Me: No... they aren't.
Cal: But, but, but.... why not????
Me: Because they just aren't!!!!
Cal: But I want them to come to our house (super whiny tone)... I want to play with them.
