Stop licking your nose, please.

We don’t kiss strange dogs.

Oh, dear. Zach didn’t mean to spray his tortilla on your new shirt.

  1. The one that makes me laugh is asking princess number two to stop beating on her big sister.

    For some reason that just cracks me up! 🙂

    said by me at my godson’s mother’s wedding – to the huge amuusement of all the folks within earshot 🙂

  3. Simon: Why do I suspect that Princess #2 holds the advantage by being less hindered by civilizing influences than her elder sister?

    CQ: Well, it was true wasn’t it?? But I’ll bet it sounded funny!

  4. ‘Superheros do not use their powers at the dinner table.’


    ‘Now how did THAT happen?’

  5. The first and the third I can understand, but “No more hugging”?? Unless… are we talking full-body take-no-prisoners, knock-em-all-over commando hugs?

  6. Susan–I can see it! My son came home with the first “boo-boo” from preschool.
    The 4-yr-old version went something like this:
    “I wanted to hug my best-buddy Josh but he was on the floor. So I got on the floor. I was on the top and he was on the bottom and I did hug him but then…well…I got hurt.”
    The teacher’s version:
    “He scraped his hand a bit.”
    Kids’ version, as always more entertaining.
    Love hurts, I guess.

  7. Lory: That’s so cute! It’s just so perfectly natural to crawl around on the floor to hug your buddy when you’re four.
