out of the mouths of babes . . .

last week, while making my bed, lily and i had this brief exchange . . .

lily: mom, i want some juice.

mama: lily, finish the milk on the table and then you can have some juice.

(lily leaves the room . . . then returns a few minutes later)

lily: mom, i want candy.

mama: lily, you just finished eating breakfast, i’m not giving you candy.

(lily leaves the room for a second time only to return again a few minutes later)

lily: mom, here’s the problem . . . i want candy.

mama: (after hysterical laughing has subsided) lily, here’s the answer . . . i’m the mommy and i say “no candy”!

(lily leaves the room after rolling her eyes at me like some kind of preteen hannah montana groupie. i’m afraid we’re in trouble!)

One response to “out of the mouths of babes . . .

  1. Yes, you’re SO in trouble with your miniature teenager. My little girl makes similar demands. She once scolded my wife – “You forgot to put dessert in my belly!” – and just last night told me I was being “challenging.” But what would we do without these wacky kids?

    Thanks for visiting Guitar Dad. Hope you’re doing well. Please tell Tom hello for me.
