Holy Cow!

Monday, April 21st, 2014

I told my son, “You better pick up some toys because your dad is going to have a cow when he sees what a mess it is in here!” To my surprise, Aiden jumped up and quickly started putting toys away. I commented on how proud I was to see him following directions. He responded, “Well Mom, we have to make sure the toys are out of the way so the cow doesn’t have to step over them!”

Keeping Clean

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

My son and baby daughter were playing with a baby bouncer. I told my son to be careful with it because we were going to sell it. Sadly, he pleaded with me to keep it. I responded that it takes up too much space, but I would consider keeping it if he found something else to get rid of instead. He excitedly said, “I know, you can get rid of the vacuum! You never use it!”

Mr. Clean

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

We were transitioning our son from a sippy cup to a kid-friendly water bottle. As he was playing with the new bottle, he emptied out the water onto the floor. I looked down and said, “You spilled water all over!” He answered quickly, “No, I cleaned up the dirt!”

Mess Maker

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

My son came to me one day and told me that he’d accidentally knocked all the DVDs on the floor while trying to reach his favorite movie. I told him it was okay, and asked him to put the DVDs back on the shelves. He left and came back in one minute, so I commented that he was very fast. He responded, “No Mommy, I didn’t pick them up. I decided to turn the lights off instead.”
