One night this week after a particularly trying day at work, I was attempting to get Adam settled in to eat dinner.
A thunderstorm was raging outside, while inside my little guy was being anything but cooperative.
Finally I said, What do you get from Mommy when you're acting up and not doing what I say?
(hint: a spanking)
And my rambunctious little boy answered, A mocking bird!
Just so it doesn't sing. I can't take any more noise in the house.
