You can't talk to three year olds

Me: "Now that's enough, Alex! I'm putting you in time out for throwing toys."

Alex sits quietly in his time out spot for three minutes....

Me: "Now can you tell me why I put you in time out?"

Alex: "......uhhhhh.... I sassing..."

Me: "No..."

Alex: "......uhhhh..... I biting...."

Me: (now trying to stiffle my giggles) "No. Don't you remember?"

Alex: ".....uhhhh..... juss i-tauz..." (just because)

Me: "No. I put you in time out because you were throwing toys. Do we throw toys?"

Alex: "Nooooooooo...."

Me: "Do you know why we don't throw toys?"

Alex: Notices the furrows on my forehead and rubs his little fingers over them giggling... "I want to do that again!"

Me: "Alex?"

Alex: "You funny, Mommy!"

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
