  1. Almost traded in

    Sunday, 22 August 2010

    Amy has a habit of tacking on a sentence to every request, because, for some reason, she thinks it holds weight...

    "Fweeze? I be your best fwend!"

    We're trying to encourage her that this isn't the best attitude to have when asking people for something.

    Actual conversation that took place on Friday after I told her that no, she couldn't have what she wanted...

    Amy: "My not your best fwend, then"
    Me: "I'm not here to be your friend, I'm here to be your mother"
    Amy: "My find another mother"
    Me: *eyebrow raise* "Will you now?"
    Amy: "yes"

    I walked to the front door, opened it, gestured...
    Me: "off you go then".

    She walked out, and only made it to the end of the driveway before she started crying. I watched her out the window until she came back to the door, and she informs me...

    Amy: "My can't find another mother"
    Me: "Can't you?"
    Amy: *shakes her head*
    Me: "Would you like to come back home?"
    Amy: *Nods yes*
    Me: "Ok. I love you!"
    Amy: *trots back inside* "Love you mummy!"

    It was hilarious :)

      My parents did that to my brother when he threatened to run away from home once. My dad opened the door and said okay, bye.

      I did that once to my oldest when he was 6. I had to get in the car and go pick him up cuz he wasn't stopping :D.

      Yeah, Our eldest called our bluff when he was 8. Wouldn't quit whatever it was he was doing in the back seat, so, after many warnings, Adam pulled over (on the highway) and told him to walk home.

      Troy started to get out of the car.

      Adam had not factored this into the equasion and had to back pedal. FAST.

    Thanks for chiming in :)

    I really promote conversation here, and I only ask that you be considerate of others feelings, and remember that tone doesn't always translate well over type. An emoticon can work wonders! ;)
