Okay, I have GOT to find new things to say! Obviously, I repeat myself waaaay too much. In fact, this past weekend I learned just how much.
So, I'm sitting on the couch and I look over at my sweet little 2 1/2 year old and notice that she has moved from one set of toys to a new one. In my attempt to try to persuade her to clean up the toys she appears to be done with, I say to her, "Hailey, before you start playing with your Aquadoodle, you need to pick up your baby dolls." To which she calmly looked at me and replied:
"I am serious!"
After that, I really had a hard time being serious.
Lesson learned: Perhaps I should find ways to show my children I am serious and then I won't have to tell them "I am serious!"
Bonus tidbit: My kids DO listen to what I say.
