oh Annie

Sometimes I sound silly. I know that. But it's not until I step back and think about what I said that I realize it. (or have a song sung about it!)

So this afternoon, I was bothered with Annie when she peeled a hard boiled egg into the empty garbage can. I said, "Annie, think before you act." Which, in all fairness, is what I should have said, right? We have to parent our children and tell them what is right and wrong. I know that. But when she starts to immediatly make up a song about what I said and proceeds to sing it the rest of the afternoon, well, it sounded silly.

Annie: (singing) "think before you act....think before you act"
Then she says, "I really like this song!"
