No, because you're stupid

Another rant about the neighbors. Just so you know, I do really like everyone with the exception of 3 neighbors. The two in the back and the neighbors down the street who think, well, they are more sophisticated then everyone else. Which by the way they are not!

Just because she sits on her back porch during the day drinking her red wine letting her kids run wild while I slave at work does not mean she is by any means any better then I, just lucky!!

We are of course in the front yard watching our child unlike this family where parents are no where to be found while their children run all over God's green creation when I see their youngest, who by the way is 4, sitting on the sidewalk 4 doors up from their home.

She is sitting near the street people use as a place to drag race to see if they can beat the light. Heaven forbid they get to their destination 3 minutes later due to a red light. Which is a blog for another day.

The little darling begins to shout, "Hey LM do you want to come over and play?" LM not amused by this in the least shouts back in his most demanding voice, "No, I don't want to play with you!"

I can see her wheels clicking as she thinks of what to say and comes up with a smart way of saying, "And why not?"

LM doesn't miss a beat, "Because you're stupid."

As a parent your feelings should be holy cow I'm mortified and embarrassed which were mine at first then after a split second all I wanted to do was laugh. I'm thinking my child knows this family and even though stupid is not a nice word I'm right with him on this one. I should not blame this little girl for her parents actions though.

Again, I blame preschool for this "stupid name calling" action. As it's only right to blame someone.

In the end, LM did apologize for calling her stupid and got sent to time out. Manners are so hard to teach but I will and am trying to do the best job that I can.

Next time teach him to say "because your parents are stupid!" Can't blame the kids for the stupid parents of the world.

HA I love it. But I can't teach him that...I could...but it wouldn't be nice.

He called the neighbor that I do like stupid the other day and spent about 20 minutes in time out.

Came outside with those big sad puppy eyes walked over to said neighbor and cried I'm sorry for calling you stupid.

My neighbor loves this little boy as much as I do and all he could do was give him a huge hug and smile.
