I hate it when I say something dumb and my kids call me on it. The other day, I was scrambling to get my kids out the door for school. They were "eating" their breakfast while they talked, teased, and sang. Not a lot of eating going on. I got frustrated and said "Shut your mouths and eat your breakfast!" Well - I didn't realize how dumb that was until I heard laughter and looked over at my smarty-pants kids to see them trying to put their forks in their tightly closed mouths. Ughh! Why do they finally choose to listen and mind in my moment of stupidity? Oh well, I've got to hand it to them, it was pretty funny and we all had a good laugh and they still made it to school on time. I guess I better think about what I am saying before it comes out of my mouth!
If you have a funny story please share to help me get through the first Monday of the long 3 month Summer Break!
