Conversation with a three-year-old. Also, I am seriously so awesome with kids.


Me: Who's Thomas?

C, holding up a small toy: THOMAS THE TRAIN!

M: Well, that's technically not a train. A train is a series of connected railway cars with an attached locomotive. What you have there is a tank engine. (patronizing chuckle) I'm surprised you didn't know that.

(Child pauses to examine toy.)

Perfect. I've always spoken to my kids on a higher level, with more respect, way tooo much sarcasm, and now, at 8 .. WOW. revenge is theirs.

The best is I'll point a stick at my 3 yo and shout the killing curse at him (I can't spell). He'll blink at me and inform me it's not a magic wand, it's a stick.

(oh but wasn't it the same exact stick he just used to stupify his brother and sister with 5 minutes ago????) (YES.)

This sounds eerily like the conversations I have with my 3-year-old ALL DAY LONG. I'm kind of dreading when his little sister begins talking in complete sentences and decides she needs to compete for Mommy's ear...
