I thought I would share a conversation that took place a couple of days ago between the kids and I. This first picture says a lot.
Annie to Max: What are you doing?
Max: I am about to do the coolest scooter trick!
Annie talking to herself on her "cell phone:" Well, Max is about to do a trick that will probably make him break a leg or something.
Max talking to himself: I just need to move this over here.
Me to Max: You aren't thinking of using that ramp for the trick, are you?
Max: Mom, I am going to do a trick that I have done a thousand times.
Me: Well, move that ramp into the grass so that it is out of your way.
Annie on her phone: Max is going to get hurt. We will end up having to go to the emergency room.
Charlie on his phone: Max huwt leg. (He still hasn't mastered the "R" sound.)
Max: Whoo-hoo! That was awesome!
Me: No it wasn't!
Charlie: Max is in twouble!
Annie: Man! If he does that again mommy is going to get really mad. Then she will have to pay a copay and she doesn't like that. (I kid you not!)
Me: Annie, you are right! Max, don't you dare do that again. You just about gave me a heart attack!
Max: Mom. It's fine. I do it all the time when you are inside.
*I don't even want to think about what else he tries when I am not around.*
Never a dull moment around here!
*Yes, Jenn. I fussed at him for not having on a helmet.*
