My boys are buddies. Good buddies. They just had a wonderful week together up north at the cottage. They get along fantastically...most of the time. But lately, I can tell Henry, age 2 1/2, is picking up on language from his bigger brother. I can't help but smile at the things that I am hearing come from his mouth - yet it also bothers me a lot!
Top 5 things I heard Henry say today, with the right attitude to boot!
1. I VERY mad at you.
2. I tell on you.
3. I don't want to play with you.
4. I don't like you.
5. Bad baby!
These are things that he MUST be hearing from Charley because Ed and I DO NOT walk around saying them. Charley reacts with fake and exaggerated pain when Henry says these things.
The brotherly banter has begun. It will drive me insane but also makes me smile, just a little bit.
