Discipline lessons from an 8 year old

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Sunday evening I was driving the kids home after taking them to do everything a child could possibly want when Taylor said something to Ashton in the back seat that she obviously didn't like. I don't even know what he said, but I began to correct him and tried to say, "Taylor, let's be nice."

Ashton stopped me in mid "Tay-" and said, "Mom, can you just skip to the part where you get mad at him?"

I love it when my kids say stuff like that, just random things that catch me off guard and make me smile. :) Too cute.

I take it you're a fan of the Bachelorette. I did that post thinking only a very elite few would actually get it and think it was funny. The rest are going to whiz on by because they don't "watch that crap"...:)

gotta hate it when the kids already know what you are going to say. When that happens at my house I think,
crap, now I have to come up with some new material!
Your family is beautiful!
Found you through sits-love how this site is allowing us to make new friends! Also love your blog-super cute!!

Is that tacky to come by and stay to oggle the husband? :-) And you know, last time I visited you, the blog looked really different. You've had a makeover, no?

My girls are constantly telling me to punish one or the other. I keep reminding them that *I* am the mommy...not them. They have on their selective hearing at that point.

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
