You say that like it's a bad thing

Am I the only parent that gets a kick out of eaves dropping on the conversations of their children? It can be a real hoot to listen to the dialogue between a 3 year old and 18 month old when they don;t know you are listening. The other day, the boys were playing in The Babe's room. I am not sure what they were doing exactly, and I am not sure if what came out of Little Man's mouth was in jest or if he was mad at The Babe. Either way it was funny.

"You little Masterson"

I could not help but chuckle. Obviously Little Man pays attention to what Mommy says to The Babe. I am one of those moms that uses middle names when the boys are doing somethign they should not. You know, "Babe Masterson get off the cat". "Little Man Michael get off your brother".

Brother must have felt The Babe was doing something that was not safe and was looking out for him. At least that is the way I will tell it.
