He just kills me.

R: (Hugging me...after a big fight, time-out, and finally - his apology)
"I love you Mommy.....I'm sorry I was being bad."

Me: "It's okay honey....I just really need you to listen next time. I love you too."

R: "How much do you love me?"

Me: "More than all the stars in the sky."

R: "I hate being in time out."

Me: "Well, you're the one who put yourself there."

R: (looking irritated)

R: "Mommy? Can I tell you a secret?" (arms still around my neck)

Me: "Sure" (I give him my ear)

R: (whispers) "You're fired." (and walks away)

I'm telling you - I couldn't make this sh*t up if I tried.

OMG. Your kid is *so* funny, I don't know how you don't die know, when you're not dying of mortification or irritation or whatever.

There are some people who tell me what a great sense of humor Smunch has. He's got NOTHING on R. Seriously.

'Course the obvious response is, "oh YEAH? Well, I QUIT!!"

Oh if only...thank goodness those words aren't allowed, or we'd all be "unemployed" -- and regretting it.

Reminds me of the time I was threatened with: "Mommy, if you don't give me back my toy, I'm going to COMPARE you!" Unfortunately, my guffaws of laughter in response tipped him off!
