At least, if the kids are going to repeat everything I say, I generally say decent things?
Case in point: Patrick hadn't finished breakfast, so Lilly and I went downstairs to put laundry in the washing machine. This is a coveted task, by the way. When we finished, I turned on the TV down there for her; Patrick yelled down not to do laundry because he wanted to help.
Lilly's prompt response, yelled back up the stairs, was, "It's all done, sweetheart; I'm sorry. You had a chance."
I have my struggles with "only mommy or daddy or I can give timeouts/take things away/chastise," but I love when they call each other sweetheart just like they're used to hearing from me, mommy, and possibly daddy too. It's a tiny bit patronizing, mostly sweet, but resigned. Yep, exactly how I say it.
