B was sitting at the kitchen table, barking orders at me. "Mom I want eggs, Mom get me some milk. Mom wipe the table. Mom...who knows what else." All of which I was ignoring because I was doing one of the many things she was asking and I only have two hands. Anyway after a few "mommmmmmmmmmmmmmm, mommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm." I snapped and said "What?! I heard you. I can only do one thing at a time B."
She folded her arms, as her head dropped to rest upon her arms she said in her softest sweetest voice..."I know you just want to sell me don't you."
Then the other day, again an entourage of comments and questions and commands, and then I said probably not in the nicest mom way "Just stop, just stop for a minute B."
She dropped her head and said "Mom that is not a nice way to talk to people. You should use a nicer voice."
So I have been reprimanded. And I do need to be mindful of what I say, is all I can say.
