I could tell the second I saw this face that someone was up to something. . . "Hey Barrett Boy. . .what's going on?"
Silence. . .
"Where's your brother?"
"Oh. . . him thirsty"
"Is he thirsty or is he bringing more water out for mud pie?"
"Oh him thirsty." Notice the hand up to his mouth acting like a cup. Does this kid think he is good or what? "Barrett boy would tell your mommy a story?"
Silence. . . "Barrett Boy?" In my very best mommy voice.
Still quiet. . .this kid is tough. . .he just won't give an inch. "Barrett?"I know what this little twerp is thinking, "I know something you don't know," in his best na na na voice. Yep that has got to be it! "Na na na na na!""I know you said no more mud pie. . . mud pie need it! It need it mom!""Na na na na na na!""We totally got you mom!" "Na na na na na!""That's what you think. . . .MOM ALWAYS WINS!"
You may have a cute little grin and skinny little legs. . ."you corner too!" I know those two twerps are secretly laughing with their noses in the corner. . .What's a mom to do?
