On Sunday I actually overheard a mother yelling this at her 5-6 year old son;

“Stop eating so many vegetables!”

I know!

In public (at a Yom Ha’atzmaut event – celebrating Israel’s birthday).

Happy Birthday Israel!  You don’t look a day over 61.

    Jo – I know. I sat there, probably looking like a complete idiot – staring at the Mom, wondering if I had just heard what I thought I heard.

    Eric – LOL. That is totally something I would say to my kid, but I probably would have said “Be careful, you will fall”, first. Because saying that after is pointless. Like telling someone who has just tripped to watch their step.

    Other day at my daughter’s T Ball Game

    “I told you not to fall!!”

    When her kid fell through the bleachers and landed on the ground, hurt herself and started screaming.
