What a Square!

On the way to preschool this morning Cole was kicking Jonah's legs in the back seat. I am trying really hard to not yell at them so much so I turned down the radio and said, "Cole, please stop kicking your brother."
Of course, he continued.

"Cole, Mommy said to stop kicking your brother and I am not asking. If you choose to disobey, you will be disciplined for your disobedience."

He proceeds to tell me all of the reasons he deems it necessary to kick Jonah's feet. Appealing to the "4 year old oldest brother wanting to please Mommy" mentality I said, "It gives Mommy a sad heart when you are mean to your brothers."

"Mommy, I don't have a heart."

"WHAT?!"

"I have a square."

That's hilarious! I know I wouldn't be able to keep a straight face in that situation...which makes it really hard to discipline!

The things they say, square and buttscotch are my new faves! Bless your heart as you try and keep a straight face, I'm usually not very successful.

I love it! Can't wait to see what else they come up with! I still have to say that Jonah's "I can sing Holy, Holy!" was a great one!
