Ohhhh Scott



Me, reminding Scott that there are certain weird rules you have to follow to be a part of 'normal' society: "Baby, look in my eyes so I can hear you better, you've got to look people in the eye when you talk to them."

Scott, reminding me that he's not interested in being a part of 'normal' society: "Mom, I can't look people in the eye! Then they can poison my soul!"

Hashtag Dexter?

Linking up with Mama's Losin' It with the prompt something your kids said that made you laugh. I laughed after the fact.  Way after the fact.

  1. Oh yes... he's got a point! A very good point. Kids can be so wise. I love his response.

    1. Yeah...I guess. I was initially creeped out, but I'm coming around.

  2. Michael is the same way - (*except his exact comment was, "Why are you supposed to look people in the eyeball? It's so weird! SEE?!" and then he began having a non-blink staredown with me that eventually did in fact make me uncomfortable and he wins..... it is weird to look someone in the eyeball.... for too long anyway.

    1. He's definitely got a point. I think it's hopeless for Scott. Is eight years old too young to declare him hopeless? He's going to live with us forever.

  3. Maybe we should be the ones taking notes from kids instead of the other way around!
