Conversations with a three year old

Bonnie and I had this small conversation driving home from an oil change appointment for the truck.

Me: Feed some of the cereal to your brother.

Chas begins screaming in the back round and no longer has any cereal as he dumped all his out a few minutes earlier and can't figure out where it went.

Me: Bonnie are feeding your brother or just taunting him?

Bonnie: Taunting him.

How can she even know what this means. I know this is payback for the way I treated my mom when I was 14.

Well, on the bright side, at least she's honest? Taunting is a pretty impressive word for a 3-year old to know, though!

Krissie said...

That is classic.

THey are pretty honest at 3. So funny! I just worry when I ask what they're doing and they respond "having fun." Never anymore description is given, never!

It must be pay back for when you would walk several paces in front of me at the mall in Bloomington. For some reason that action would really get under my skin. I would insist you walk with me or we would leave the mall. The joys of teenagers.

You have got to love 3-year olds. As Mom said, a presage to 14 year olds. Thank goodness there is 11 years of bliss (?????) in between.
