GOOD MANAGER 

K.Lo, to The Manager in varying situations, such as operating the microwave:

“Good job, Mommy! You’re doing so great. I’m so proud of you!”

 

Or, gently to N.Lo when he’s doing something he shouldn’t: [Sing-songs] “No, no, sir!”

 

BAD MANAGER

K.Lo, to her sunglasses, after they poked her in the eye:

“NO, SUNGLASSES! DON’T. DO. THAT! [Mutters] FOR GOD’S SAKE. [Shouts] DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?”

 

 

Sigh.

    Oh, this makes me laugh and laugh.

    I just love it when I'm about to yell, "NO BARK!" to the dogs, but Dellaina beats me to it. And she has the same inflection, tone, resonance, frustration, exasperation. . but, it's somehow cuter and gives me a pang that I expose her to it.

    Exactly! Half the time it's the dogs I'm yelling at (I swear), but the way they mirror it is funny and heartbreaking at the same time. Like if only I were one of those people who could get the message across always in a happy-go-lucky way.

    Saw your comment on Lorrie's blog and came over. I love this post and the memories it brought back from when mine were small. I would go into the bathroom and they (twins) would stand outside the door chanting "tinkle Mommy, tinkle. You can do it." Such encouragement.
