Be careful what you say to your children


The boys were muddy from playing in the dirt, last night, so I told them to jump in the shower before dinner.  Matthew got in and Christopher said, “You need to jump.”  Matthew started jumping up and down in the shower.  Rob heard him and told him to stop.  Matthew answered, “Christopher told me I needed to jump.”  “Christopher, stop telling him to do that,” Rob said.  Christopher replied, “Yes Sir, but Mommy told us to jump in the shower.”

  1. LOVE IT! Children are SO literal! Bennett would do this, I think…JUMP that is! 🙂

  2. Hi Lisa. You are so right! Christopher was completely serious! We laughed so hard.

    I love these funny things. Being a mom can be hard, but these cute moments help lighten things up along the way. It’s all so worth it:)

    P.S. We missed you last night.
