the mirror…

… or rather, the tape recorder.

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? We noticed this pretty early on, when Alice wasn’t quite two and “pardon me” and “indeed!” were part of her vernacular (which, by the way, sounds positively absurd, but that is another story…).

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.
