Say What You Mean

My mom used to have this saying... "Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't be mean when you say it." Now that I'm a mother I'm really beginning to learn how important it is to say what you mean! See this is how it all went down.

I said to The Hulk

"No hands in the dog bowls!".

What I should have said was "No hands, no spatulas, no anything goes in the dog bowls!!!"

Once I made myself completely clear the little man took his spatula and high tailed it out of there!
