We’re supposed to ask our kids for their input sometimes, right? Not just tell them what we’re going to do in every single instance. Especially when the choice doesn’t really matter: like if they want to wear their blue shirt or their green shirt. But, I’m learning I need to not leave the question quite so open-ended….
On Birthday Presents
ME: What do you want for your birthday?
3Y/O: Everything I see on tv.
On Where to Eat Dinner
ME: Where do you want to get dinner after soccer?
3Y/0: DISNEY WORLD!
On What to Get at the Store
ME: (meaning what little treat to get) What would you like Mommy to get you for being such a good boy in the store?
3Y/O: A fish!
Well played, little guy.
What things do your kids say that surprise you or make you laugh?
