A new mom asked if we ever find ourselves telling the kids strange things, like, “There’s avocado on your nose.”
If that’s the strangest thing she’s told her son, she’s got a long future ahead. I tell my boys odd statements all the time, mostly in reference to violent behavior.
My most common phrase?
“_______________ is not a weapon.”
Feel free to insert pretty much anything in the blank, and it’s been said. This morning it was “The Monopoly game box.” Yesterday was, “Your car pillow.” And, yes, I have also told them not to use their brother’s head as a weapon as well.
