I really am talking to myself

I came downstairs from showering the other day to discover that Sawyer had smeared a stick of butter over every surface he could reach in the kitchen. I responded by chastising him...immediately...repeatedly...and possibly...loudly.

As I was, shall we say, verbally expressing my frustration Sawyer walked over to the junk drawer and started rifling through it. He pulled out of pair of foam ear plugs, stuck one in each ear, said "Too loud in here Mommy" and walked out of the room.

He is 2. I might as well give up now.

Oh, and it appears he smeared the butter because he took a giant bite out of it and was mad that "it not cheese!"

Sounds vaguely familiar to an excperience I had with ketchup recently. Thank goodness for degreasers! (and ear plugs)

I'm sorry I taught you to yell at your kids, Erin. Although I don't think I really took off with that until Evan was born. Three seemed to push me beyond the limits of my patience.

I remember once when your were probably about four, I heard you upstairs yelling and carrying on about something and I called up to you and asked what the problem was. You hollered back, "We're just playing house and I'm the mom" Once again, I apologize.

Sorry to say, but that is hilarious. And sorry for reading your other commenters' comments, but "anonymous" (I assume your mom) made me laugh my head off. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who verbally expresses frustration!

I needed some good laughs...should have known I would find them on your blog. Marc and I both laughed outloud at this and some other posts! :) Crazy little boys!
