Smarty-Pants Son Strikes Again

Tonight's smarty-pants comment:


LegalMist's husband was teasing LegalMist's son ("LMS" - 7 years old) tonight. I don't even remember what the teasing was about, but LegalMist's son had taken all the teasing he could take, so he grumped:

"You're an idiot, Dad!"

We can't have the kids calling names so of course I jumped in and said, "LMS, that's not nice, and it's not true. Your daddy is one of the smartest men I know."

So LMS muttered under his breath: "You must not know very many men...."

* * *

I would have chastised him for that, too, but my husband was laughing out loud, so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have done any good.

You'd never know he was the son of a lawyer...

When my son was about six (he's sixteen now), I got a call from my ex-, who told me he'd called her "stupid." As much as I agreed with him, I still had to scold him for calling her that.

Hey, the kid is quick-witted. It's a quality that will serve him well in life. I'd be beaming with pride if he were mine. ;-)
