I did something bad this morning. I'm pretty sure most parents have done it at least once. Maybe not, maybe I am just trying to make myself feel better. Anyway, here is my confession. We were all sitting at the table for breakfast this morning. J and R were both having honeybuns and Hubby was eating an omelet. R (who is only 3) tells daddy "Give me Ham". Daddy tells him to eat his honeybun and then he will get ham. R then procedes to tell daddy, in his most assertive voice "I will eat honeybun AFTER you give me HAM!" This is where I made my mistake. Instead of scolding him on how he is not allowed to speak to his parents that way, or how he is not to DEMAND things from us, I broke a cardinal rule. I laughed out loud.....seriously, I cracked up. Whoops! But coming from such a small child it really was comical. Bad Mommy! Bad Mommy! Now I just wish someone would send me to my room alone....you know, to think about what I have done.
