Driving home one Thursday evening, the boys were particularly loud. Particularly Sawyer was particularly loud.
Greta: SAWYER! YOU ARE ANNOYING ME!!!!!!!!
Me: Greta. You can’t just say something like that, you have to specifically tell someone what they are doing that is annoying you. Otherwise that person won’t know what they are doing wrong. This would be better, “Sawyer, you are annoying me when you… and then fill in the blank”
Greta: Sawyer. You are annoying me when you breathe.
A few days later, at lunch.
Greta: Mama, will it take forever for me to be an adult?
Me: No, just 15 years.
Me: Why are you in such a hurry to be an adult anyway?
Greta: Because I really want a baby.
