Have Soap, Will Travel

I'm considering keeping a bar of soap in my purse.
After reviewing the following exchange, I'm sure you'll support me in this decision.

Me: Time to leave the park, lets go.
Lily: No, I'm not leaving
Me: Well, yes, you are leaving, lets go. (takes Lily by hand, moves in direction of home)
Lily: You are not my father! You are not my Mother! You are not my Brother!
Me: (nothing)
Lily: I am not going home! (attempts to wrench hand away and head back to the park)
Me: (keeping hold of small three year old body)"do not do that, you will hurt your arm, we are going home now."
Lily: I am NOT HAPPY!!! You are NOT MY FATHER!
Me: Nope, I'm not your father, I'm your mother. I understand that you are not happy. Lets go.
Lily: I'm sick and tired!
Me: lets go.
Lily: I'm sick and TIRED!!!!
Me: what are you sick and tired of?
Lily: Pulling your HEAD out of your BUTT!
Me:---nothing--- honestly, what can you say when your three year old says this to you?

So I marched her home, put her in her room, and ran to tell her father what she has learned from him...neither of us could keep a straight face. But I defy her to try it again. Like I said, "Have Soap, will Travel."

That is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time. I would NOT have been able to hold it together. I am bad at laughing at my kids when they say stuff like that.

I have to say, I didn't realize she was 3, and it made me laugh when you said that!

Hahahahaha!!! I love it when little kids say funny things. Especially when they're trying to be serious.

Truly hilarious coming from a 3 year old.

And just so we're clear, you're not my father either!!

This would be perfect for those little soap leaves you can get in a pack. I saw some at Pier 1 the other day.

haha, what they pick up on. And I'm sure she hears the sick and tired bit from you, right? That's all I can recall my mom saying to us growing up. Oh, and "your driving me bananacrazy" and, "Go clean your room or I'm going to call your dad!"

Don't you hate it when your kid says something that is really bad but it is just so darn funny coming from a little kid that you can't be appropriately angry?
