Random dinner conversation at Casa de Motherscribe

JCK: What were you two playing outside?

GIRL: Baby.

BOY: I told you that two times, Mommy.

JCK: You did? I'm sorry, I don't remember.

BOY: You don't have a very good brain.

***********************************************

BOY: You said we could watch that silly movie after dinner.

Loooong Pause...........

GIRL: Sometimes people don't keep their promises.

JCK: O.K. O.K., I keep my promises.

I think it's time BOY and GIRL learn the fine distinction between a promise and a prediction. Mothers are in the business of prediction, because we've learned to predict that things will certainly arise to derail promises.

Heh. I hate it when they remember that you promised to let them watch a ridiculous movie.

I'm afraid I don't have a very good brain, either.

Kids and their honesty, huh?! This week the girls I watch told me 1. I have really big feet. 2. Maybe I could get a job mashing potatoes with my feet.

Hey, if the pay is good, I'd consider it.

*huge laugh*
Ooops! That's a wake up call, Mommy....

Amy said...

My brain broke a long time ago, and my daughter melted part of what was left of it this month.

oh well.

Why do they remember that they MIGHT get to watch a silly movie 4 hours after you said it, but they can't remember to stop hitting each other 5 minutes later?
