Out of the Mouths of Babes
My kids have been killin' me lately. Here's the latest....
Brennan (5) really loves to answer the phone. These days he actually considers it his job around the house. This afternoon before I got in the shower (hey, at least I got a shower) we had a little talk about phone etiquette. I tried explaining to him that if someone called he should NOT tell them his mom is in the shower. He should say "my mom can't come to the phone right now." So I suggested we practice. Here's what happened...
Me: So, if someone asks to talk to your mommy, what do you say?
Brennan: She can't come to the phone, she's in the shower.
Me: NO, NO, NO, that's too much information, don't tell them I'm in the shower. Try again, what do you say if they want to talk to your mommy?
Brennan: (looking at me very quizzically) She can't come to the phone, because she's NOT in the shower?
