My Mom Says
The funniest thing about this weekend had to be my nephew's use of the phrase, "My mom says." I first noticed it at Wal-mart when he found a toy he wanted. I said we weren't going to get it today (since Erin was in a different aisle at the time) and Max said, "But my mom says." I was like, "Um, your mom isn't anywhere near us, so nice try." When I asked Erin about it, she said that was his latest thing...anytime he wanted something, he'd bust out, "My mom says." Even if she said no (to his face), he'd still say, "But you said." Don't you wish everything was that easy? That you could follow up anything you wanted with, "But my mom says." Like saying it was a free pass....Where do kids come up with this stuff??
