I’m beginning to understand just why we need to be careful what we say around our children.
My kids have this amazing ability to remember, with frighteningly accurate detail, every scene from their precious movies. Today, while waiting for the kids at dance class, I was chatting with my friend. She and I share the driving, as our children have class together but the classes don’t start at the same time. I drive the big kids early, and she arrives later with our little ones. She told me that my daughter provided the entire script of an episode of “The Magic School Bus” in the car. Apparently, she was explaining how digestion works.
Now, why doesn’t this amazing memory apply to other things? Say, putting dirty laundry in the wash bin, or washing up before dinner, or not hitting each other on the head with plastic sticks?
