I leaned in, smiling at him, as I pulled his seat belt tight and asked "so what did you have for lunch today?"
Dexter: --punches me in the mouth with a huge smile on his face--
Me: WHAT WAS THAT FOR!!! WHY WOULD YOU PUNCH ME IN THE FACE!!!???
Gasping in shock, I finished strapping him in and told him he was going to time out when we got home.
During the 5 minute car ride:
Dexter: Can we look for skoo buses? Can we look for skoo buses? Mommy! MOMMY! CAN WE LOOK FOR SKOO BUSES???
Me: I'm not talking to you right now Dexter.
Theo: You're in big, super big, trouble Mister. How does that feel, huh? Do my words tickle your ears? Huh?
Dexter: BURSTS INTO TEARS.
Me: -- hides face and stifles laughter.
Back at the ranch:
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me? Apparently not.
Happy weekend, y'all!
