That was one pretty long title. Ok so THiNG 1 is such an innocent child generally. But man does he crack my lip once and a while.
JD: You just hit your sister please go to time out!
Thing 1: NO! I don’t like timeout.
JD: Thing 1 you just hit your sister and we don’t hit. Please go sit on time out for a couple of minutes and calm yourself down.
Thing 1: (sarcastic biting tone added here) "YOU have GOT to be JOKING ME!"
JD: (Biting lower lip to not laugh profusely, and to keep the "authoratative tone" in my voice) Just sit yourself down on time out, Sir.
He knows he is in trouble if I start calling him "Sir". In fact he has tried to use the same tone and calls me "Sir" while being serious with me. I try and tell him I am a "Mam". To which he replies "MAN?" With a throughly confused look on his face. Then says, "No you are my MOM."
