Shenanigans? Hmmm. What are those?
"IF I HAVE TO TELL YOU ONE MORE TIME TO STOP PEELING THE PAINT OFF THE SIDE OF OUR HOUSE I'LL START STRIPPING THE PAINT OFF OF MEMBERS OF YOUR VACUUM COLLECTION TO SEE HOW YOU LIKE IT!" I might have said that to our older son not too long ago.
"Please, for goodness' sake, STOP fiddling with the bulb in the back of the toilet. That thing NEEDS to flush!" Oh, and that used to be a common saying around here also.
"Spit! Ew! Not in mouth! Dirt is yucky!" Um, yes, that belongs to us.
"STOP pulling the pink insulation from the attic out of the ceiling fan! STOP IT! That stuff is NOT as fun as it looks!!!" And, for the record, latent insulation itch in public places is NOT fun, either.
"I don't care how many times you say 'salt' over and over and over, I'm not going to let you drink from the container." Yeesh. Addict.
"Just because every house on our street owns a vacuum doesn't give you the right to jump our back yard fence so that you can break into those houses for play time." Ugh. In the running for Most Popular In the Neighborhood, here.
"You may NOT stand on top of the car!!!" Note to self: teach son the difference between "can" and "may".
"Where are your pants?!" Or, it's popular cousin:
"Put your clothes on while riding in the car!" That's one of my favorites.
"Did you just throw your shoes out of the car window??? DID YOU???" Crisis tip: Do not ask questions like this to a non verbal child.
Shenanigans. Ah, yes. I guess I have come across one or two of those...
