Once upon a time the Hubs and I loved the sounds of our own voices and repeating certain phrases sooo much that we decided to become parents. Oh the joy we now have saying things like, "Firecracker, pick up the toys", "Sweet pea, don't take that from your brother", "leave each other alone" etc. Our plan worked so well (please note the sarcasm).
The moral to this story? Children, no matter how well behaved, always need to be instructed. Sometimes multiple times, and sometimes with more than just words. Sometimes it takes consequences, which is no fun for anyone. However, they also are the source of more joy than you can imagine.
Have a great weekend!
