Out of the mouths of babes . . .

I knocked over a cake, icing-side up at a dinner this weekend and my son said:

"mommy! you pick that up and then go sit in that chair, you are in time-out until you say sorry for breaking such a yummy cake!"

I promptly took a seat, so as to keep from falling to the ground in laughter. Luckily there were extra cakes!

That's great! Gotta love the thought processes of children.

Heh. If he has to do it, you do too, huh?

That's fabulous.

That is pretty great!

But I'm confused... it landed icing side up. Why'd you need extra cakes? You didn't toss it, did you???

No, in fact, we did not throw it away, and my son and several other children greatly enjoyed it!

Dash threatens with this..."I am taking you to command"

We have tried to side step this one by letting him know Dad works at command....this has not helped.

It's funny (and a little scary) when you start hearing yourself in what they say, isn't it? :)

Son? He's not property trained yet, apparently. He should have attacked the cake and tried to eat it all immediately before the 30-second rule expired...

I'd comment, but I'm laughing too hard to type.

I love it when my children make me follow MY rules, lol. They keep us honest!!

My son does this to me too. It's hard keeping a straight face when that happens but I do sit in the chair, it's only fair!

Kicking around cake now, are we?

Sooooo funny. (Hope you are saving hard copy of these treasures - someday his kids will scream over this one!)
