One time when my now 20 year old son was about 4 he was being all crabby. NAP TIME. We had one of those conversations that make you realize how kids learn and repeat.
Me: You need to get up on that sofa and take a nap.
Him: I am not tired.
Me: You need a nap.
Him: (sniffling while getting on the sofa) you're treating me like a Bit**
Me: (swat on the butt) Now say that again young man.
Him:(sniffling more) You're treating me like a Bit**
Me: Do you want another swat?
Him: No! you said to say it again.
So after a couple minutes I try to figure out where he heard that.
He meant "you are treating me like a dog" He had been watching the animal planet and evidently they use the real word when talking about female dogs. lol
Even today that memory makes me laugh.
I love my kid, it is amazing that I get a day of celebration for doing what I consider the best, most rewarding job I will ever do. And for MY mom she is amazing, a mother and daughter definitely become closer when the daughter becomes a mother.
The Garden of Eden bike ride, and on setting boundaries - On the exercise front, I’ve still been walking or biking rain or shine daily. Actually, I took two days off recently. One because I went on a 2 hour bike...
