Kids, eh?

Nora woke up from her nap in a pretty decent mood, but when Andrew asked her if she wanted a snack, juice, etc., she just kept saying, “No.” Finally he said, “Do you need a clean diaper?” and she held up her hand and said, “Just leave me alone.”

I was folding laundry and told Jack I needed him to put away his clothes. “No, thanks,” he said.

“Uh… the correct answer is, ‘Sure thing, Mom,’” I told him. There was some more argument and I finally said, “We’re going to make you a chore list, Jack.”

“Nooooo!” he said.

“Jack, how old are you again?” I asked.

There was a brief pause. “Not very,” he said.

I love these!

My four year old always says "No, thanks," when we ask him if he has to pee.

James recently explained to me that when I say, "Sweetie, you wanna go brush your teeth?" he gets confused, because I make it sound like he has a choice.

To you, I'll admit he's got me there...but to him I explained back that I was just being polite. Now go brush.

Ha! "Not very." Smooth move, that.

Sawyer today told me I could "go in kitchen and clean" so he could watch his show. (I wasn't offended yet because he's 2 and I often tell him I need to go clean the kitchen as an excuse to leave his room at bedtime.) I asked why he wanted me to leave and he said "You annoying me, mom! My trying to watch my show!" At that point, I was slightly offended.
