Why did I SAY that?

I say such stupid stuff when trying to get Sonny Ma-Jiminy to behave the way I want him too. Parenting kids properly, in particular disciplining appropriately, swiftly and consistently is only possible when you can direct your full attention to the task. In the average day, that opportunity doesn't present itself very often.

This is why I find myself in distracted moments saying stupid things. Things like:

"If you eat too many snacks now, you won't have any room for your dinner. See, if you keep eating bananas and apples, you'll never have enough room for your ... err, your pizza ..."


"You're putting way too much on! Don't eat it now - you'll get ... um, Mayonnaise Poisoning!"

See? Senseless.
