Out of the mouth of babes.

Out of the mouth of babes usually comes the truth in some form.  Recently, Teagan has taken a likin' to the phrase "just a little minute".  I sat down the other day and it hit me like a ton of bricks.  She wouldn't be saying it if she didn't hear it a lot.  Unfortunately, here lately there have been more times then not that my answer to her questions have been "just a minute" or "in a little bit". 

Like when we get home.  I go into full on "routine" mode. Dinner, a little play, baths and bed.  Our converstation usually goes something like this:

"Mommy play Teagan"
"In a minute, Baby, Mommy's making dinner"
"Mommy, play!!"
"In a minute, Baby"

Is anybody starving?  No.  Could dinner wait a few more minutes? Absolutely.  From now on Teagan won't be hearing "just a minute" as often as she will hear "Okey Dokey! Mommy's coming!"  Hopefully that will be the next phrase she catches on to.
