Have you ever noticed the things coming out of munchkins’ mouths are generally a decent indication of the things that come out of their parents’ mouths?

Well, one day last week I got a taste of my own medicine. She wanted pretzels or some other such junk and I told her she had to eat good food first. She looked at me indignantly, saying, “Under noooooooo circumstances! I. Want. That. Stuff.”
Yeah, Mama? Note to self: calm down. You’re making your kid crazy.
