A few days ago while I was getting my daughter ready for bed I had mentioned she wasn’t listening very good to me that night. I then followed with a comment about needing to clean out her ears maybe. She agreed they were probably full of wax. I said “I bet you didn’t have any problem listening to your teachers at school today. How come you use your listening ears for school and not for Mommy?”
C: “Well I had my listening ears on at school, but they needed a rest so they’re taking a break”
Me: “Nice answer. You know you have a smart answer for everything?”
Her answer to that was a devilish grin. Darn kid. Apparently she gets it honest as my Mother tells me C is a lot like me at that age!
