Kids crack me up.
I was explaining to the kids today about Valentine's day and how it's a day we can show others how much we love them. I made a special breakfast for our family (nothing shaped like hearts, I'm usually not that fancy in the morning!), and afterwards, Luke asked to be excused. Feeling a bit lazy, I asked if he'd please take my plate to the sink, too. Here's his reply:
Really, Mama? I may?
Yes, Luke. You may (wow, maybe training kids to wait on me hand and foot will be easier than I thought!).
Wow, Mama! Thank you! (seriously, not a trace of sarcasm here). I love taking your plate to the sink. Thank you for asking me! You must love me very much! (seriously, no sarcasm, he was quite sincere!)
You're welcome, Luke, and thank you for taking my plate to the sink.
Mama? I love you so much I will do ANYTHING you ask me!
Hmmmm, anything? (this could be GOOD!)
Yes, Mama. I will do ANYTHING you ask me! Because I love you!
Okay, Luke. Thank you.
I won't do anything bad.
Oh, that's good.
Like, if you ask me to kill Susanna, I won't.
Maybe he should've remembered that before he hit her, HARD, an hour later (but I don't know WHY I hit her, Mama, I just did.)
At least he didn't kill her.
