I was helping the boys clean their room this evening. Gavin was messin' around, off in his own world, not helping his brother.
Then I did the unthinkable. I quoted my father. "Boy, I'm going to light a fire under your butt if you don't hurry!"
Gavin (age 4) burst into tears. "NO MOM! Please don't! I might DIE!"
Ooops. I felt horrible for scaring my baby but couldn't help but laugh at the whole situation.
First, the fact that that came out of my mouth. Then his literal translation. Ahhh...the joys of parenting.
