Ohhhhh! Tear drops....


See this look above. It is currently driving me crazy! My children know that in our house we speak kindly to each other, we don't call each other names and one of the ways we show love is with our words. Well, lately my children have been finding a way to get around this....


Let me introduce you to the new saying in my house... "Ooooohhhhh! Tear drops" which is used with a pretend sad look and a finger placed on your cheek!


It comes out whenever someone says something that they don't like, that they don't agree with or just because they love to do it and it relates to nothing at all! My efforts to explain that this is not really a loving gesture and a way of being kind have recently been falling on deaf ears. I am thinking we need a whole family night dedicated to this topic! Oh! The Joy!!


The things kids say these days. 
I see many more family nights on these types of topics in the future.

Although I must say when I see this face being pulled I am tempted to walk past and simply say:

  2. We are having the same kind of issues in this house. The two boys here at the moment cannot get along for more than 5 minutes at a time. The older one is constantly making life a struggle. It seems that you have the "be nice to each other" talk a zillion times a day and it still ends in tears from someone.

  3. My kids say "tissue for your issue?" And the one that drives me nuts the most "hey mum! Don't worry about it!"
