And so it begins [Oct. 26th, 2006|09:36 pm]
One disadvantage of having children eight years apart is that you forget certain things in between. Like the fours. Even though The Boy is racing towards five at dizzying speed, he is still very much four. And this week, combining two of the most delightful foursims - potty talk and defiance - into one fourishly delicious package.

Like last night, when he kept calling Middle Daughter names like "Stupid" and "Loser" and "Butt". In The Boy language, these are Seriously Bad Words. So, Husband told him to knock it off. More than once. Finally, Husband gave The Boy an "or else". 

And The Boy looked him in the eye and said "You're a Stupid Loser Butt!" 

You can paint your own picture of the hilarity that ensued.

Oh Oh!!! He's just dying to see just how bad it can REALLY GET! Sounds like he's trying to find the answer to "What's the worse that could happen?

Surely you are not. Who gave them the right to have an opinion anyway?

But I love the way you write, so pleeeeeeeeeeease paint the picture for me? This is too much fun - and with 6 year old twins, I have quite the memory of the "4s"

Re: Details....?

In the interest of keeping this a family-friendly blog, I can't elaborate on what happened next!

Well, you KNOW I'm a bad mom

I would have had to go in the next room to remove myself from a fit of giggles before correcting him.

Re: Well, you KNOW I'm a bad mom

Thankfully I wasn't in the room when it happened, or I would have been no help at all. Serves Husband right for all the times he ran from the room when Middle Daughter was this age.

I'm just hitting the four's and your not making it look to friendly. Granted, I already went through them once...but fortunatly (or not)the memory escapes me.
