Sarcastic parents

Kids don’t get sarcasm – it just confuses them – but it is so tempting sometimes. Here are a few of the crazy things I’ve heard people (including myself) say to their kids recently:

Where has your bedroom floor gone? I can’t seem to find it.

No, you don’t need to brush all of your teeth – just the ones you want to have when you’re older.

That’s a lovely pictures darling. What is it?

Wow, aren’t you the clever one, spreading that all over your face!

Stop crying or I’ll give you something to cry about.
