Empires are not for Werewolves

I was putting Ashley to bed tonight and laying with her for a few minutes. She proceeded to tell me she was going to wake up soon.

"No sweetie, you will wake up when the sun is up."

"I will wake up when the moon is up, Mommy."

"Only werewolves get up with the moon!"
(Why the HELL did I tell a three year old about werewolves coming out at night when she is going to bed? Where is my brain?)

Silence from Ashley.

"Oh, Ashley, remember Uniqua was a werewolf on that episode of the Backyardigans..."
(I am pretty good at covering my ass on most occasions.)

"Yes, and there was the Mummy King."

"Yes, and Pablo was a vampire."

"No, Mommy, Pablo was a empire."

"No, he was a Vampire sweetie."

"No back talking Mommy, that's not nice. He was an empire."

"You're right sweetie, good night."

I've done that with my daughter too...just give in, "you're right sweety". It's not worth the argument!

An empire! LOL! You hate to correct them when it's that cute!

"No back talking Mommy, that's not nice." I busted a gut on that one! I love what comes out of their mouths sometimes!

Tigger was singing "bone-y butt, bone-y butt" in the tub - I had told him he had a bone-y butt weeks ago when he sat on my shoulders.

Kids are cute and they do say the darndest things.....precious isn't it?

Working Mom said...

How cute! I usually let Bug win arguments like that too. If not, you could spend hours trying to convince them something different.

That's a classic! Good Job!
