Ethan and I are sitting on the couch together, watching home videos. He has been a handful today... quite needy and whiny...
Ethan: Uhm.. I did something that I think you are going to get mad about.
Me: Okay. What?
Ethan: Uhm... you know my bear?
He shows me his bear.
Ethan: He has this yellow rain hat? I was holding him up to the fireplace glass and his hat kinda melted on the fireplace glass.
Ethan: See? See his hat? It lost its yellow.
Me: I see that.
Ethan: And see? See the fireplace? You can kinda see the yellow on it.
I look over at the fireplace and sigh.
Me: I see that too.
Ethan: I'm sorry mom. My brain is making me do it.
Me: What is your brain making you do?
Ethan: My brain. My brain isn't working right today. It's making me do things I shouldn't do...
Ethan: Like whine a lot...
Ethan: ...and put my bear on the fireplace
Ethan: ...and stuff like that.
Me: I'm sorry to hear your brain isn't working.
Ethan: (sigh)... Yeah. Thanks.
