I was inspired to add some of my own comments to this discussion that was started by MckMama. Here are some of the things I have said lately, at least the ones that won't be too embarrassing for the boys if they read this when they are older:
- No, please do not "eat your brother for real" like a tiger - even if he asks you to.
- So, your stuffed animal said that and not you? Well if he decides to say that again then he will have to go to time out.
- I am sorry that you don't want to eat that now since it is what you just demanded. It is what I fixed so if you want to eat anything, that is what you may eat.
