Seen. Heard. Said.

My son was being cute tonight. We were on our way home and passed a Dairy Queen. He exclaimed, "Dairy Queen is there for a REASON!!!!"

And, I replied, "Yes, it is, to teach you self control."

I don't think he knows what self control means, but he got the gist of it.

Mean mom.

A child after my own heart. You are a good mom not to indulge him :)

Couldn't he just have had one with tabasco sauce? :-D

entropy and Tara: He is quite the schemer, but in a cute and sweet way :)

Gem: The day my kids put tabasco on anything is the day I really turn into a drill sergeant. YUCK!! When I worked at Boeing, they had a lot of ex-military guys and one morning I in the cafeteria and a guy in line in front of me put tabasco on his oatmeal. "EWWWWW," I said, before I caught myself and embarrassed both of us!
