Today Keston tipped over a vase, spilling water. This conversation ensued:
Keston: Oh, I'm the lamest kid.
Me: Yes! You ARE the lamest kid! (Said jokingly).
Keston: YOU'RE the lamest mom! (Said quite seriously).
Me: Kes! I was only joking!
Keston: Well you're still the lamest mom.
Nice. For the record, she's usually pretty quick-witted and can carry jokes well, and learns words like 'lame' from her 15 year old sister. And no, we don't make a habit of caling any of our kids lame, ever.
UPDATED: It seems some may have mistaken this conversation. We do not allow our children to talk like that, she was frustrated as she was sopping up a vase full of water, and on the verge of tears because she didn't realize I was joking. She's not a sassy kid at all, which is why it was so funny to me. We're raising good kids, I promise. :)
