Conversations with a 4 year old can be a challenge. And no matter the topic I am always wrong.
M: Grace quit chewing on your shirt, you will put holes in it.
G: I'm not!
M: Oh yea? then how did it get wet? (I'm sure she is chewing on it)
G: I was SUCKING on it.
M: right....don't do that either. (I was so wrong)
G: why not?
M: .....????..... Because I said (yep pulled one out of the mom hat)
My kids constantly stump me. Leaving me with no good reasons for the things I say to them. It's hard to always be right when I rarely am. But I'm the mom so my word is law. It's my reward for becoming a mom. Just as it was my mother's reward and so on back as far as mother's go.
Because I said, usually means we have no idea why we said what we said.
