Overheard at a playdate

C: "Julia, will you live with me? I just love you so much." Which was met with dead silence. Wise choice Julia, he hasn't learned to put the toilet seat down yet. And he hogs blankets. Equal sharing of household chores? Forget it.

Later, after C had many touch and go incidents in the use of words department:

C: "I'm very disappointed. I'm very disappointed in you."

Mommy: "C, why are you disappointed?'

C: "I'm disappointed when she says no."

Maybe the "express your feelings" and "use your words" mantras are actually getting us someplace after all.
