So Amber will sometimes talk to her toy friends like I talk to her. Most of the time it is about things we have done or that her toys need to hold her hand when they cross the road. Things like that are good to hear because then you know she is learning and understanding. But today's conversation with Curious George and monkey saddened me a little. It made me wonder - do I really sound like that? It went something like this:
Amber:"George you have to go to time out."
Amber to me:"George had to go to time out because he wouldn't listen."
Amber:"George you need to listen and be good. Hey, monkey you go to time out right now. Yes right now. You don't talk to me that way."
Amber to me:"George and monkey are in time out because they weren't being good girls."
Oh the good and bad example I set. It is a little funny to hear someone else playing you but it is also an eye opener. Parenting. No one is perfect right?
