Last Friday afternoon my Mom and sister babysat so I could run and get Husband an anniversary present. Once I got home and settled in Mom and sister packed up and were getting ready to leave when Noodle asked Grammy to beep four times (she's very particular these days) before she drove away. Their conversation went something like this...
Grammy: 'OK, look out the window and I'll beep for you.'
Noodle: (standing in the doorway) 'Beep four times, Gramma!'
Grammy: 'OK, close the door. It's cold outside.'
Noodle: (still standing in the doorway) 'Beep four times, Gramma!'
Grammy: 'OK! Close the door!'
Noodle: 'Beep four times you two faced son of a jackal!'
By that point Mom was already in her car and didn't hear Noodle say this, but I made sure to call and tell her right away :)
Last night at dinner we were all sitting down and I realized I forgot to get the girls their drinks. So I get up and refill sippy cups and Husband took Noodle's to hand it to her. Well, he failed to realize that she had gotten up and was standing next to him, but behind him a little bit waiting for me to hand her the sippy cup. He didn't see her and turns to give her her drink and elbows her smack dab in the middle of her forehead. It very obviously hurt (there was a nice red bump front and center) so he apologized. However, that wasn't enough for her and she hit him back. At this point I intervened and explained to her that Husband hitting her was an accident and he said he was sorry so she needed to let it go. This evidently was not an acceptable answer to her so she turned to Husband and tells him, 'Go to work Dad. Just go to work.' And went back to eating her dinner.
