Well, okay, Mom, if you insist.

Every so often my brain is going at such a clip that my mouth can't keep up and I suffer a moment of verbal dyslexia that would make Yogi Berra proud.

"Don't eat with your mouth full."
"No more broccoli for you, young man, until you finish your M&Ms."
"Brush your hair and teeth and put on shoes and socks - in that order!"

But the worst is when they obey something like yesterday's:
"Lock the car doors and take the keys."

D'oh. No wonder they don't listen to me!

My mom always said 'backwards' things, too ... I worry that I'll grow up to be just like her ;-)

but the finishing the m&ms? that, I like!
