Things I actually said this week:
"Joshua, no standing on the kitchen table." (It was between meals, and he wanted to snack on some grapes...)
"Nelson, put down that hammer."
"Joshua, put down that kitten!" (As in the 2 week old kittens)
"No scissors, Joshua!"
Things the children actually said to me:
"Mommy, you are not a bad cook. You're just not a good cook." (Rebecca)
"When will we get our own New Jersey cow?" (Rebecca)
