Conversations with small children will make you feel a little crazy…

Here is a conversation I had with my 3 year old son this morning. It is a wonder more mothers are not certifiably insane.

SCENE: Bathroom. MOMMY is picking up a plethora of toys from the bottom of the tub. MICAH comes into the bathroom.

MICAH: Mommy, I wanna take a bath!
ME: No, honey, we’re not going to take a bath right now. I want you go to watch TV.
MICAH: But I don’t wanna watch TV.
ME: Ok, do you want me to turn it off?
MICAH: No!
(Pause)
MICAH: Mommy, what are you doing?
ME: I am going to take a shower.
MICAH: Mommy! What are you do-o-o-o-ing??
ME: Micah. Listen. I am going to take. a. shower.
MICAH: But I don’t want to take a shower!
ME: No! I am going to take a shower!
MICAH: NO!

MICAH exits to go watch TV.

GAH! Seriously, no wonder women talk their husbands ears off when they come home from work!
