Real conversation:

Zack: Mom! Evan is teasing me!
Evan: I am not!
Zack: Yes you are. You are a mean bully!
Evan : I hate you! I'm going to kick you in the face.
Zack: Mom, Evan is threatening me.
Evan: Mom, Zachary is being really mean to me.
Me: Boys,work it out and stop telling on each other. I don't want to hear it.
Zack: You are the worst brother in whole world.
Evan: Mom! Zachary is still being mean to me.
Me: I said, work it out.
Evan: Ouch! Zachary just pinched me.
Zachary: I did not! You're lying.
Evan: Poopy head!
Zachary: Mom! Evan called me a poopy head.
Me: The next person who tells on their brother is going to their room!
Zachary: Evan just kicked me!
Evan: I'm telling!
Zachary: Mom-Evan is telling on me!

Really? Really?



  1. Oh my god! Yes - we have the same conversations....drives me absolutely batty. It is even worse that I am an only child. I just don't get it one little bit!

  2. Bwahahaha! Now that I've been on both sides of that, I appreciate my parents so much more.

  3. Oh, yes. Really. Welcome to the fray. ;)

  4. Some bad goes on for years. My eldest is 13 and is constanty dragged in for similar "conversations" with her 8 year old brother It's doing my head in....

  5. I just get the back talk....but why can't I...but what if I always say no....yadda yadda!

  6. I think the key is to look at them and not speak- give them I'm looking right through you stare.
