Out of the Mouths of Babes

My sis-in-law called me yesterday and told me the cutest story about my great nephew, her grandson. This story was just too cute not to share!It seems the whole family went to the lake for Memorial Day Weekend. The youngest kids were having a great time playing with all their cousins, watching videos, playing games and eating and eating more. Towards the end of one day, Travis took a bag of peanut butter cups to his mom and asked if he could have one. Knowing that he had already had too much she said no. He thought about this for a minute and then looked at her, put his little finger in her face and said, “That pisses me off!”

This sounds terrible, but if you knew his mom you’d know he was only aping what he’d heard from her when she is extremely upset, but thought he couldn’t hear her. As all the adults tried EXTREMELY hard not to laugh because he sounded just like his mom, she calmly dealt with the situation and diffused his little outburst. They all went back to playing and had a fantastic weekend!

MORAL OF THE STORY: Little pictures have big ears and the mouth to repeat what they hear!

Children have big ears and soak everything up like sponges — the good, the bad and the ugly too.
