Yesterday, I was driving The Littles to the Children’s Museum, when I received a business-related phone call.
Of course, THIS is the optimal time for the 2.5-year-old to decide he NEEDS my undivided attention.
“Mom. Mom. Mom. Mom! Mom. Mom. MOM! MOM! MOMMY! MomMomMom! Mom.”
When I was finally able to hang up, I attempted to use this time constructively – as a learning opportunity, if you will.
“Please do not bother me when I am on an important phone call!” (and then re-thinking my approach) “That is, unless, you really, really need me because it is super important. Was this super important?”
“Okay, what did you need to tell me while I was on the phone?”
“Mom! Look! I can do this!” (Makes a silly face in the rearview mirror)
