My 9 year old laughs out loud any time someone says the "Number Two" because OBVIOUSLY.
Tonight the four kids picked up on it and in an effort to reel it in I reverted to our old method of threatening them teaching them manners at the dinner table - giving out strikes.
You get three strikes, you don't get dessert.
All went well until my 9 year old son sinned for the second time.
"STRIKE TWO." I told him.
The entire table erupted into hysterical laughter.
The nine year old turned to me and said, "MOM! That was inappropriate dinner table conversation! You should get a strike."
Well! There is a rule against calling strikes on the umpires and each other so my husband reminded him... "Are you arguing balls and strikes?"
All four children hit the ground. From some where below the table a hysterical voice gasped... "You... said.... balls!"
