    I have to admit – I have totally been just like Papi on more than one occasion.

  2. KathyB! Says:

    Awww… It’s fun to be the instigator. Papi’s a hoot 🙂

  3. parenting BY dummies Says:

    Funny, sure it seemed like a good idea at first. #3’s new fave is to call my name until I say what and then he say, “nuthin'”. Cracks me up! But, I’m sure it won’t in like two days:)

  4. Lindsey Says:

    We totally do that with our kids sometimes.

    It doesn’t really help.

    The Bee~ I think it’s easier when you’re the person doing it and not the one listening.
    KathyB!~ Yes, he is.
    pBd~ Three days, tops.
    Lindsey~ At least it wasn’t mimicking the cry-whine, which my husband does. Like I needed two voices to grate on my ears.

  6. Ink Says:

    I think Papi is totally enjoying stirring the pot…

  7. ck Says:

    Papi needs to guest post.

  8. faemom Says:

    Ink~ It’s amazing my dad made it 30 years on the force with that attitude.
    ck~ That would be awesome except my dad is a “Storyteller,” which means he feels his stories get lost in translation when written.
