I have been disciplining my kids too much, I think. What goes in, comes back. The way I’ve been instructing them, my girls are learning well, especially the younger one. Many times in a day I am telling them the right time to do things pointing the watch and what it says, like “It’s eating time”, “It’s sleeping time”’, “It’s playing time” and blah blah blah. Today the little one was wearing her watch and here is our conversation :
ANIKA : Ask me what the time is.
Me : What time is it, ANIKA?
ANIKA : my watch says it’s ICE CREAM time. It says we have to eat the ICE CREAM right now. Can we?
Me : Uh..
ASHITA : (whispers) Say yes.
ME : (sister’s conspiracy I’m sure) Hmmmm
