I nanny for a 1 year old girl (BabyGirl) and 4 (A/Master of Disaster) & 6 (J/Whiny Magee) year old boys. As you can imagine I hear some of the funniest things ever said. Master of Disaster actually asked me once "Jessica, why are you so bossy" And my response was,"because I'm the boss"
Backstory: Mom Boss has been training for a bunch of 5Ks and I think even a half-marathon.
I was trying to explain the Olympics to the boys. I have very intention of watching them while I'm at work, so I figured I might as well have them be excited about it too.
This is how I explained it to them: Once, every four years, each country picks the people who are the best at certain games. Then, the whole world gets together and plays the games to see who is the best in the world.
Me: Who do you think we should cheer for?
MofD: The people that are winning?
Me: Sure. Anyone else?
WM: The people from our country
MofD: If Mommy was trying to win the running part, I would cheer for her!
