Things 3 year olds shouldn't say...or me for that matter.
Today, Brooke said something to me that 3 year olds should not say. This is also something I say often, that I SWORE I'd never say to my child when I was younger.
Me: Brooke...are you ready for bed?
Brooke: No mommy.
Me: Why not?
Me: Because? Why arent you ready for bed?
Brooke: Because I said so.
WTF???? It is just like nails going down a chalkboard when she says this because that means something I swore I'd never say...is being thrown back in my face.
Another gem...Don't criticize me..because this USED to work...
Me: Let's go inside Brooke.
Brooke: I don't want to mommy.
Me: Mommy's going to cry...(btw..why do we always refer to ourselves in third person?)
Brooke: Go ahead.
WTF??? When did my child become so insensitive. LOL
Me: Brooke GO TO BED! (the way I say it sometimes makes her cry..)
After she is done crying and lying in bed...
Brooke: Mommy, I'll be nice now.
Me: Ok honey...Go to sleep. I love you.
Brooke: Mommy, I'm sorry now.
Me: Ok honey, I love you, now go to sleep.
Brooke: Mommy, can I give you a hug?
Me: Yes honey...I love you.
Ok...I'll wait for you all to say "Awwwwwwwwwwww".
The next morning....
Brooke: Mommy, are you still mad?
Me: No honey. I love you. (She wasn't suppose to remember that!)
Here are some shorts of things that were said to us in class by our instructor...and my response. And yes I said this stuff out loud .
Instructor: Personalities are pretty concrete. This means that a 2 year old's personality will probably never change.
Me: Good God....I'm in trouble.
Instructor: (teaching on Bipolar disorder) Many people with bipolar are very impulsive in their manic phase. For instance, they will be less choosey on who they have sex with.
Me: Well...I guess that goes to prove I am not bipolar, since I am not having any sex.(someone tell me why I admitted that in front of my whole class?)
While discussing advanced directives, and how if you don't have advanced directives..the next of kin is automatically given the responsibility.
Me: So if you are saying that next of kin gets the responsibility that would be my parents, and I am ok with that, because they are very rational.
Instructor: Do you have any brother's and sisters?
Me: I have one of each.
Instructor: Well..there is a possibility that they could fight for that right to make the calls.
Me: Hmmm well I better get one written ASAP then because my sister would be fighting to pull the plug even if there is a 99% possibility that I could recover! In fact, she probably would be begging to do the deed!
I often come out with quips in class...most of the time I get a laugh, but I bet I drive some of the other students nuts. lol
