Kids Say: Yes
Me: *plonking into my seat at breakfast* Good morning, son!
DS: Yes. *in a solemn tone*
Me: … *with a slight frown* No, when I say good morning to you, you should say “Good morning, mummy.”
Me: Say, “Good morning, mummy.”
DS: Good morning, mummy.
DH who has been silently listening to the whole exchange as he measures out the kids’ vitamin dose, gives me a knowing grin.
YES…the irony is not lost on me.
