The other day, Katie yelled at Dan. This did not go over well with Dan. He felt compelled to explain the "ways of the world" to my little girls. Here's what he said:
"You can only yell at people who are smaller than you. Daddy can yell at Mummy, Mummy can yell at the twins, and the twins can yell at Sarah. You can't yell 'up'."
Weird, I know.
However, it must be incredibly frustrating for him. He has such strong beliefs about how things should be, and these beliefs are consistently ignored. I told him that if his "beliefs" didn't crack me up so much (and if they had an ounce of common sense), I might actually take them into consideration. Until then, we roll our eyes and keep doing everything our way!
