The Boy says funny stuff all the time, but this one really caught me off guard. I’m always telling him, reminding him, sometimes nagging him to “be a good listener.”
So we’re in the car & driving to his OT appointment, he knows where we’re going, we go every Friday afternoon, and as I’m about to make a U-Turn to park in front of the offices, he starts demanding that I “turn left” so we can “go to the park.”
There’s no park anywhere around here, and I tell him that and remind him of where we’re going. We go back and forth, he is demanding and argumentative. After several go arounds, I decide to just ignore him & make the U-Turn when there’s a break in traffic.
From the backseat, I hear him mutter to himself, “Mama’s not being a good listener.”
I couldn’t help but to laugh out loud & ask, “what did you say?”
“I said you’re not being a good listener.” He replies.
“Oh, why do you say that?” I was curious to see how my 3 year old would respond.
“Because you didn’t turn left to go to the park when I told you to.” Well, he was actually right, you know.
Sigh … he is too funny sometimes.
