This morning brought yet another instance where I was astonished to hear the words coming out of my mouth, when I looked at my five year old son and said, “Don’t play your drums with your banana peel.”
I’m having a hard time picturing how that would work physically. I guess he’d have to be whipping the drums and content for an underwhelming noise.
You’re braver than I am to give a 5-year-old a drum kit.
It’s a long list of statements we never thought we’d have to say to someone that come up daily with kids. If you can think it (perhaps while dreaming or on some interesting substances) they will do it, at one time or another.
Oh, too funny. My still-favorites that I never thought to hear come out of my mouth were, “It probably isn’t the best idea to play on the roof when I am gone,” and “The baby’s penis is NOT a toy!” which, taken out of context, sounds terrible, but….you know.
