Lesson Learned

I often tell the boys to hurry and put your seatbelt on because if the police officer sees you without a belt then he'll be upset with me.  Today when I reminded Caleb of this he said, "that would be sad if they took you away.  Because, did you know that police officers always take away the beautiful girls and moms and the handsome boys and dads?"  "Are the police officers going to take me away?"  "No."

Never fish for a compliment from your 4-year-old.

that is so great! oh... kids are so... well...

i always tell my kids that if they don't have their seat belts on i could go to jail. i need to stop saying that because depending on the day, sometimes that results in applause and laughter.
