Stupid MOM!!!!!

Lately, this is the title I have acquired from my three year old son. Charming isn't it. I am not exactly sure where he came up with it, even if for the most part, it is quite fitting. I am assuming he has learned it from his older siblings calling each other stupid.

I do not like the name calling and put downs that I hear from my kids mouths for each other. I am constantly reprimanding them for it. But it seems, it is all to no avail. What is a stupid mom to do???

I remember a story about my older sister, when she was quite young. My parents rented a home from a man and that man was a friendly acquaintance of theirs as well. As the story goes, this man was teasing my sister about something. She called him stupid. Upon hearing this, my mother told her to go and apologize to Harry. She begrudgingly went to apologize. She found Harry, and said to him, "Harry, I am sorry you are stupid"

Out of the mouths of babes...........
