Don't you just hate it when your words come back to haunt you!
     There has been an outbreak, no--an epidemic!--of the dreaded "But Mommy said" in my house lately. It's got me floored. Sometimes I just give them a silly explanation just to get them to leave me alone a minute while I take a poopie or pluck my eyebrows...now they're actually remembering what I say!? (Hell, I wasn't even aware the little mini-mes were even listening!)
     First there was the Waiting Box, to which Ari defended her stance with the ever-popular "Mommy said..."--nice save, Elijah! Following that, Ari and Breezy got into a discussion about apple juice. "It comes off the apples," said Ari. Breezy counters with, "Mommy said it came from Walmart." Okay, so they were both correct. When Mickey did the infamous leave-that-last-drop-of-juice-in-the-container bit, Bri cornered him, "Mommy said you gotta drink it up." Now even the Boya's in on the action! When Mickey (poor thing!) tracked dirt in the house--major no-no by the way, because I refuse to wax the darn floors more than once a month, crawling hurts!--Elijah looked at the mess and said all smugly, "Mommy said if we track dirt in the house, she'll cook it for dinner."
     Where do these kids get off, anyway? I almost feel sorry for Mickey, our number one rule breaker. They're really letting him have it this morning. He's calling them Joy's Gestapo now. (Couldn't he call them something cute, like Joy's Angels or Joy's Agents!) When Ari asked him if "Mommy said" he could turn on the sprinklers (I did, by the way) he goes, "Gargamel is allowing it, Smurfette. Get your suit."
     I swear I live in a madhouse. Wait, wait, WAIT..."Mommy said" we're not allowed to call the house a madhouse anymore.
