So we are in our room upstairs organizing and cleaning, all the while the kids are downstairs discussing something we can’t quite make out. Soon our 3 1/2 year old Austin comes into our room and proceeds to ask us if he can have some chocolate coins that are in the pantry. We tell him ; “No Austin it is to early for chocolate, you can finish eating your breakfast.” He declares that it was his sister who is (5 1/2) who went into the pantry and that he had nothing to do with it. We repeat our previous statement and add that he should tell his sister to stay out of the pantry. Our son heads downstairs without another word.
We stop our cleaning to listen to what happens next. We suspect our daughter will not enjoy her younger sibling telling her what to do, so we expect to hear a heated discussion pretty soon.
-Austin:”They said we can have some chocolate Coin.”
-Erika:”Is that what they really said?”
-Erika:”Are you sure that is what they really said? MOM!?!?”
