the things they say...it's unbelievable

"Kids say the darnedest things," or so they say. This would embarass Hailey if she ever read it, but here goes anyway. The kids were at the table having a snack this afternoon and Hailey knocked over her juice. She came in to tell me (I was, of course, using the computer- the chair has almost become an extra appendage lately) and I asked her what she would like me to do. She yelled at me to clean it up. So, I told her that since she spilled it she should help to clean up the mess. I must mention that I was speaking very calmly and not at all upset at her. Hailey apparently didn't like the idea of cleaning it up, so she said, "I'm going to stand on it and poop in it." Well...ok. I promptly cleaned up the mess myself. I have no idea where she came up with an idea to say something like that.

I must say, I think you made the right decision. Could have been a lot worse to clean up, otherwise.

I am glad to hear...again...that I am not the only mother in the world that has challenging moments with children. Tell hailey that Auntie Ellie says to be nice to her mommy!!
