Ism of the Day

The car has been a battleground lately, with both boys throwing verbal punches at each corner.  Graham's new favorite weapon is to make behavioral recommendations to Cael before he leaves for school in the morning.

Cael doesn't appreciate the sentiment.

"Okay, Cael.  You be nice to your teacher."

 "Stop it, Graham.  You don't tell me that."

"But you should be nice!"


Cael's reasons for shunning Graham were four-fold.

"First of all, Graham, I don't like it when you say that.  Second of all, I think it's annoying and I don't like it.  And four-- number fourth-- it's just not something I like.  And because I have four reasons that I don't like it, I think you have to stop."

"Otay, I will stop, and you will be nice to your teacher."

I think it goes without saying that Cael was overwhelmingly irritated with his brother when I dropped him off at school this morning.  Because, contrary to what you may have thought, Cael just doesn't like it when Graham gives him advice.

Who knew?
