Thank you for all the kind assurances about the size of my cheeks. (the face ones... LOL, but hey, a girl can use some encouragement about the other ones too at this point ya' know. haha)
I am glad to know that I am not weird for thinking that was an inappropriate comment to make to someone. I have been, as poor Micah calls it "ornery" lately... I am usually quite the happy knockeduped one, but this week, I am a case study in the over production of estrogen or something. Totally not like my normal self. (NOTE: Micah you are not allowed to comment on that last statement either, I know you are reading this!)
Moving on... I got duped by my own Huck Finn system. (see this post to read about that.) Lincoln has started saying things like ,
"Mom, why do I have to do so many chores and you don't?"
I, being the kindhearted woman that I am went down a list a mile long of things I had done for him and the family that morning alone, making him answer me about who did them... i.e.)
Mean mom: "Who got your cereal this morning?"
Lincoln: "you did."
Mean mom: "and who went to the store and bought the milk for it?"
L:" You did"
MM: "and who works every day so we have money to buy the milk?"
We went on like this for a good while, and yep, he got the point. I want my kids to understand that contributing to the family is part of being in the family. Well, that kids does do alot of helpful things, so when he complained the other day, I was bested by his thinking...
MM: "who bought your clothes?"
MM: and who works to pay for them?"
MM: "and who does the laundry?"
L:"yo-- WAIT! we BOTH do that Mom."
Dang, he is right, that kid totally helps do the laundry all the time, and has even asked to help fold it now. (per the Huck Finning system, I am with holding the folding and adding of detergent though) SO, yes, I did admit he was quite the good helper, and encouraged him about how that was a great thing to be, and blah, blah, blah... bested by a 5 yr. old.
That same 5 yr. old also told me this week that my changing my mind on him about plans was "inappropriate". Seriously. He said "Mom, you shouldn't do that to children, it is confusing and inappropriate."
Where does he get this stuff from???
