"Mom, I think he's hungry."
"Mom, he needs you."
"Mom, he wants a cookie."
"Mom, he's thirsty."
"Mom, he looks tired."
"Mom, he wants his blanket."
and so forth.
And if that doesn't work, he does know the word "Mom" quite well. I wonder how that happened???
So imagine my surprise this morning when he picked up a toy gun in the garage, pointed it directly at me and said "Die." Yes, die. Clear as day.
I guess Thii's been watching and listening to kids at daycare because I've taught my boys to NEVER aim guns at people and NEVER say things like "die." Yup, that's gotta be it. It couldn't have come from the brothers...
you know I have 4 boys right??? I tried keeping toy guns away from my kids. They just made everything else into a gun. I tried keeping them out of the house, the garage is a good compromise. I tried teaching them not to aim at people, they wait till I'm not looking. Sigh. I tired. I really, really did.
