Could be...

Cole (my two year old) just came to me sobbing. Really sobbing - not the pretend kind that I get a lot of the time - real tears and a runny nose too... He can hardly talk and I am having a really hard time understanding him because he is crying so hard. I get a little panicky as he tells me that his stomach hurts - what mom doesn't jump to thinking "Oh no, what did you eat?!" Then the following conversation ensued...

Bella: "Ooohh - his stomach hurts real bad mom."
Me: "I can tell - what happened?!"
(I get this real sly look - she is totally checking me out to see what my reaction will be... And all of the sudden it clicks.)
Me: "Bella, you need to tell Mommy what happened!"
Bella: "Well his stomach is hurting real bad...And it COULD be because I did it."
Me: "Did what?!"
Bella: "Well, it COULD be because I punched him."

Of course she apologized and is now in her room...Anyone want to trade? :) They are lucky that they are so cute because it saves their lives on a daily basis! :) Only teasing... I will keep them and wouldn't trade them for anything! Punching and all...

Oh, that Bella. It's hard not to think stuff like that is funny.
I bet Cole didn't find it amusing though.

Okay, that story is my life 90% of the time!!! How do you get it to stop? For me, the whole "sorry" and sitting in her room or time-out is NOT working!!!

This is me everyday steph. Jaden is always trying to wake Easton up when he is sleeping. If Easton is in his swing he will walk by all sly and bump it, like nothing happened. Then of quorse Easton wakes up and my time to get things done doesn't exist anymore. My frustration begins. I am with you, good thing they are cute huh.
