Jake, while sitting on his potty: Mommy, I have to talk to you. This is SERIOUS talk. I are a serious Jakey. You sit down and look at me. (This is exactly what I say to him when he is in trouble after a time out. LOL!)
Me: Am I in trouble, buddy?
Jake: Yes! You were a bad mommy!
Me: Okay kiddo. But can you at least try to pee while you tear a strip off of me, so that we can tackle two things at once?
Jake: Okay Mommy!
