Eye for an eye?

This morning Jack and I were in the kitchen. I was pulling out boxes of cereal and asking him what kind he'd like. He pointed to the Honey Nut Cheerios. Jack knows that when I give him a bowl of "sweet" cereal, I cut it with about half of the non-sweet version. He's fine with that. I do the same for myself actually.

Jack: You know what Daddy does when he's mad at you?
me: (Huh?) Um, no idea?
Jack: He pours my cereal right from the sweet box and doesn't add any of the plain kind.

I guess that'll teach me.

Is this the news I need from my 5-year-old at 7 in the morning?



  1. ROFL! THAT is hilarious! When dad is mad at YOU he gives treats to the boy. Sounds like our house.
    Did you have words to say to dad about this?

  2. I know! Isn't it sad! :) All I got in response was "He told you that??" Which I'm taking as an admission of guilt. I'm glad we're not the only crazy house out there...
