I told my three-year-old it was bedtime.  He frowned, grabbed a handful of air, and made a motion like he'd hurled it at me.

"What are you doing?" I asked as he grabbed another invisible handful.

He slammed the air down.

"What are you doing?" I asked again.

He scowled, unable to believe how dense Mom can be.  "I'm throwing fits!"
At least his tantrums are funny...


  1. Ahahaha! That's hilarious! Kids come out with the funniest things. My little sister when she was three, about two years ago, started to screech in the car. I asked what the problem was. She said there was a bug on her knee. I said, just brush it off. There was a beat of silence and then, in a really sulky voice, she replied, "I don't have a brush." I swear, I couldn't stop laughing for at least a mile!

  2. That's awesome! And smart, too--I'm always impressed by how kids get those things (taking phrases literally is, in many ways, the best way to go!). :)
