Be Careful!

So this morning while getting everyone ready for the day, the tv was turned on like it always is, but this morning Barney was on. I'm not a big fan of this show, but it stopped Tania in her tracks thus saving me from cleaning another potential mess on her part. All the suddden Barney and some yellow dinosaur, I think BJ, were singing about being careful and how when a parent says, "Be careful," it really means I love you.

Blink...blink.

Really? Be careful = I love you? See when I say "be careful" to my kids that's just one small step away from, "I swear on everything that's good and holy if you don't stop messing around I'm gonna smack your head off and feel good about it." Who knew that empty threats and love go hand in hand.

Waitd, do I threaten people with physical violence because I love them, or do I love them because I threaten them? And do threats of being forced to sleep on the couch count, as well? 'Cause if they do, I am the MOST LOVED HUSBAND IN THE UNIVERSE!!!
