The things kids say

**Please scroll down for Wordless Wednesday**

Yesterday after John got home from work, he sat with the girls in the dining room. Anna played on a lap top while Emma watched, and John looked at baseball stats on another.

John- So, tonight you are going to be d like a big girl, right?

Me, from the living room- Yeah, no yelling and screaming or the bunny (her new Build A Bear) goes in time out.

Emma nods and points to Anna's computer- Ummmm-hmmm!!

Me and John- Pfffffft.... Bwahahahaahhaaaa.

Me, after a minute, sarcastically ( IMAGINE THAT!), after thinking about the full hour she yelled and screamed the night before at bedtime- Yeah, right.

And this folks would be why humans don't eat their young. They're just too darned cute. Plus the little socks and underwear would be too hard to digest. ;)

BTW, she yelled and screamed anyway last night. The only reason she stopped was because employed a little tough love. Yup, you guessed it... the bunny. The very thought terrified her and she shrieked, so I compromised.

Me- Stop screaming and you can have the bunny back.

Emma- *GULP*

Me- Here's your bunny.

I feel so mean.

That's hilarious!! And it's not mean to take away the bunny if it makes her listen. I've done that kind of thing and sorry but it works! :)

Why punish the bunny? Bunnies are people too!

Ha! "Why parents don't eat their young" - classic and so true, so true!

I hope my kids don't get pneumonia. Sounds awful. I hope Anna gets better soon.
