Three Little Words

Yesterday, three little words were uttered in my home, by one of my own children, that I didn’t think I’d have to hear for another year or two.

That’s not fair.

It was even said in context. I can’t remember what Tyler was doing that Chase didn’t feel was “fair”, but I remember my jaw dropping and thinking “holy cow, how does that kid know what’s “fair” and not yet?!”.

    Heather - Ahh…the "that's not fair" comment! We recently heard that at our house for the first time too. How do they have a concept of "fair" or "not fair" aleady? And when will they learn that's how life rolls, so they should just get used to it! : )ReplyCancel

    Susan M. Heim - There's an adorable Little Critter book called "That's Not Fair" by Gina and Mercer Mayer. It's a terrific book to read to your boys and start a discussion about how "sometimes things just aren't fair"! It's been a big help with my boys.ReplyCancel

    Momma-of-5 - Oh boy! It's only the beginning! In our house that phrase is often followed by "fair does not mean equal"!!ReplyCancel
