Sometimes my kid makes me regret trying to establish her rules.
We were all gathered round at the table having dinner, and my daughter starts to call me:
Mum? Mummmmmm? Mummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
I tried to finish chewing the food that I had in my mouth, while she continued in a crescendo:
Mum! Mum! Mum! I need you! Mummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?
I finally swallow what I was trying to chew, turn around to her and ask: What?!
MUM! You shouldn’t speak when your mouth is full. It’s a rule.
