But what I really want to do is direct

Peanut: [handing over toothbrush] Mommy turn.

Mommy: [taking toothbrush] Okay. Open, please.

Peanut: [snatching brush back] Mommy don’t want it.

Mommy: [puzzled] Okay. I don’t want to?

Peanut: [yelling and shoving the toothbrush back into mommy’s hand] Peanut say DO it, Mommy DO IT!

I swear we’ve never said anything that sounds anything like that. But if I knew he was going to use that line, I might have tried it a few times. Wouldn’t have worked. But it would have felt good.

  1. Ha! That’s hilarious. Peanut sounds about the same age as Roo. We’ve had a few “Do It!” conversations. It reminds me of that scene in the remake of Starsky and Hutch when Ben Stiller (in disguise) says “Do it” over and over again.
