Short Conversation With a Six-Year-Old

Joey is going through an obnoxious phase. At least I hope it's a phase. Just sassy, not listening when he's told to do something, not always being nice to his sisters, stuff like that.

At dinner tonight he started in with the obnoxiousness and I finally looked at him very sternly, after having told him to stop a number of times, and said, "You're getting a little too big for your britches."


He looked at me in all seriousness and said, "What's a britch?"

It was hard to keep a straight face with that one ;)

Hey, at least it cut through the obnoxiousness (hopefully more than temporarily) and made him stop and think. What did you tell him a britch was? What is a britch? Just another word for pants?
