At Least He’s A Logical Thinker

posted by Momo Fali on November 8, 2007

As my son was scraping a dismantled high-chair across the floor, I said, “Stop that! Dad told you not to do that. It’s scratching the floor”.

He stopped and looked at me for a second, then moved it forward a little.

I raised my voice and said, “Hey! Stop doing that! Didn’t you hear me? Dad told you this morning not to do that anymore!”

He stopped again and said, “I CAN do it.”

I said, “Uh…no, you can’t. You’re not allowed. Dad said so.”

Then, with an irritated look and annoyance in his voice, he turned to me and said, “But Mom… Dad’s at work”.

    He’s my kinda kid. 🙂 I’ve given up trying to stay a step ahead of my boys. Too much brain stress.

    Oh man that just scared the crap out of me! I hope Joshua misses that rung on the Logic Ladder!

  • Chuck

    Yep, you’re in trouble alright. My daughter moves through that stage on a pretty regular basis. Each time it warrants the ol’, “Where did you come up with that?!” look. What’s frightening is the context she says this stuff in is usually correct.

    LOL!!! That’s got to be the best and most honest response I’ve heard…

  • newnorth

    hahaha, He’s got a point :p

  • BusyDad

    When a high chair falls (and gets dragged) in the kitchen, and no dad is around to hear it. Does it make a scratch?

    Your kid is deeply philosophical too, apparently 🙂

    You have to be SPECIFIC. Or you will be CORRECTED.

  • Mama Zen
