Tonight I said something that I was pretty sure that I would NEVER hear myself say as a mother.
Oh sure, I expected the "Get your finger out of that!", "Don't eat that-it's poop!" or even "Put that cat back outside!" But never what I heard myself say tonight...
[Get ready, now insert your best "mother/teacher/any authoritaryish figure" voice]
"You better sit back down in your chair if you want any more lettuce!"
Yep, you read that right "lettuce"-I swear the kid thinks that stuff is candy :)
