When the girls have gotten on my one and only, last nerve I will sometimes say, "Will you stop! You're irritating me!" Well, I wasn't sure they knew what irritating meant until one day Liv was having a hard time. I had finally had enough. I was in my bedroom at the time and I told her she had to leave if she was going to whine. She couldn't do it in my room. "It hurts my ears", I told her. She walked out crying, I walked away in a tiff. Ellie was sitting by me and was quiet for a time. Then she turned to me and asked, "Mommy, you irritating?"
They do have a way with words don't they?
