Mr. Literal

My husband has been working long hours at his new job, which means I have been doing just about everything with both kids in tow.

Last night I had a committee meeting at their school. While I was in the library, they were to sit across the hall in the music room and read or play some handheld games. They've done this a few times before, but for some reason my son was really restless last night.

After coming in and interrupting us over and over, I finally sat him down in the chair next to me, gave him a pen and told him to draw some pictures in my notebook.

After a few minutes, I looked down to see him happily sketching. He looked up at me and said, "It's a picture of you."

I nodded. Then to further keep him busy I whispered, "You could make my hair longer or write my name on my shirt".

Which explains why I got home from my meeting to find my white, hoodie sweatshirt now has the word "Mom" written on the sleeve.



I must say, I saw that coming.

Somehow, I can see my kids doing the same.
i hate to see what he has planned for your hair! you might want to sleep with one eye open for the next few nights just in case.
Following instructions to the letter, or letters in this case.
Oh.My.God! That is fantastic! LMAO! I, maybe cause I'm not quick like that, did NOT see that coming! Hahahahaha!
Now, THERE'S a kid that can follow directions!
Good thing you didn't say to make your hair shorter...
Haha that is awesome
Cute post! I bet you were laughing on the inside:)
You SO asked for that.

Is your kid a selective lawyer, too? Mine can recall 12-second conservations from three monthsago to prove his point, yet can't remember to change his underwear and socks every day.
SUCH a classic'll be telling it at his wedding.
Fun-nee! With him around, you will never run out of blog fodder.
I have a 12 yo that will do random literal things like that...on purpose now, I suppose! lol
LOL! I guess it's a good thing that he didn't decide to draw hair on the hood!
I am both laughing with you and at you! This was too funny!
Too Funny. Your misfortune will serve as a reminder for me to watch what I say.
I love that kid!
A genuine lol.
What a good listener for doing what I suggested!

(I'm trying the 'specific praise' approach.)
Good thing you didn't tell him to make your hair *shorter*!
Ah, I see I'm not the first with that thought...
How did you get him to be such a good listener:)?
Well, you asked for it.
I don't know what's funnier, the fact that he wrote on your shirt or the fact that he wrote "Mom" as your name. Love it!!
Hairspray is supposed to be a good ink remover, or milk someone told me. ROFL
Hide the scissors!
Don't you love it when kids take life in the most literal sense.
Can't say he doesn't listen to his Mom; too funny!
That's hilarious. Aren't you thrilled to be labeled? You're lucky that's all he wrote...
what a sweetie- does that mean extensions tonight?
that is hilarious.
You asked for it:)
Well... yeah.
Oh, that's awesome: I love it! :)
Regular vodka will take permanent marker & pen out of any clothing. Don't ask how I know that.

I love that little guy! He can write on my shirts anytime! (As long as we have vodka ;) )
at least he's listening!
THAT - is awesome.

How did he make you hair longer?
Great job!
Great job!
Well... you DID say... ;-)
No he didn't! That's classic!
I love little literalists! Of course, I've been told I was one...
