Having 5 Grandkids ( from New Born to ten yrs) and Baby Sitting them when they were really small . I have to say I really enjoy talking to the little kids more than most adults...
It's hillarious what they can come up with trying to explain something.. LOL "BH"

I love the conversations that start with "Is there something you need to tell me? If I happened to be angry about something right now, what could that possibly be???"
With each of my sons the response is different. The youngest will say no, straight up; the middle one will think about if he might've done something wrong; the 15-y-o will make a mental list of all the stuff he's done in the past month and try to figure out which one I found out about.

*the kick* -- it lifted my feet 6" off the floor, i nearly lost my footing trying like a scrambling cat to land. me trying to land standing must've looked like a gymnast at the special olympics who just vaulted off the horse.

When I was 20 I feel asleep at my Fiancee's (now my wife and mother of our two girls) parents house while we were watching movies in the living room. Her dad turned off the lights and covered us up. I was still living at my parents house and at 2am my mom called and said "YOU WILL NEVER DO THIS TO ME AGAIN!!" and she was right, I moved out 2 weeks later. She said that was the one thing she regretted ever saying to me because she forgot how old I was.
Also, our oldest daughter always questions us if we say we are going to do something (Like going to Disney world this coming Nov) and it's not because she doesn't believe us... it's because she wants to know its really going to happen.

My son gets into it with his sister every now and then (not often) (2.5 years apart and she just turned 2). If he smacks her or pushes her, all I have to say is "Do you want a spanking?" He will look at her, say "I'm sorry, sissy" and give her a kiss. She's a little meaner than he is and the pushing or smack never seems to bother her. Often times, I've had to stop her from tearing into him.
He also hates "We'll see." "Daddy, can I ___?" "We'll see." "Daaadd!"

|commodore_dude||"Because I said so" was always the worst. I understand so much more now about why my parents said and did the things they did raising me, but if I ever have kids I would really try to limit the use of that one, especially as they get older.|

When I was younger (not too long ago, I'm 16) and when I got yelled at or smacked by my parents, it sent me into a silent rage and I just wanted to piss them off even more.
Kids react differently, but one thing you can count on is that "rebellious" stage they get into between 7-10th grade, where they think they know life enough to make their own decisions. When in fact us teenagers don't have the experiences to make decisions.

after a half hour of wrestling with my 4yr old nephew we plopped onto his mom's bed exhausted for a rest,
our faces were kinda close together and he looked at me and said, "you know, you might get a girlfriend if you trimmed your nose hairs".
i will remember that line with embarassment and a laugh for the rest of my life.

They always know what "we'll see" means. I've changed it up to "we can talk about that".
Mine also hate the "hey, can you grab the ___ from the ___?" two floors up... Like we haven't all done our time with fetching things for our parents!

Daughter: "Can we go to McDonald's?"
Me: "we'll see"
Daughter: "I know what we'll see means"
