Maggie: NINA! (Angry face, then very quiet voice) ...I'm going to chop your head off."
Then laughter as Maggie chases Nina around the house.
But, I thought that I couldn't just let that statement go, so I tried to have a talk with Maggie (always a bad idea).
Me: Maggie, what you just said to Nina wasn't ok. I know when you're angry you want to say the most hurtful thing you can think of--
Maggie: That wasn't the most hurtful thing I could think of. Do you want to know what the most hurtful thing I could think of is?
Maggie: Nina, I want to put you in the oven and cook you and then cut you into little pieces and eat you for dinner. I think that would taste pretty good! (As she skips around the house).
Did you see that list of the 15 Creepiest Things Kids Have Ever Said that I posted on facebook this morning? Exchanges like this are why I found that list unimpressive.
