To kick or not to kick…

Mal: Mommy I need to take off these shoes (picture her pink, fancy, clip-clop dress up shoes) they are giving me a foot headache.

Me: Well, that sounds painful. I would take them off too.

After said painful shoes were removed she proceeds to kick (like she was taught by Mia Hamm) a beach ball across the living room.  She barely missed her sister’s head and the ball only stopped after it slammed into the baby gate.

“Mallory, we don’t kick balls in the house.  Remember what happened when brother and sister bear kicked a ball in the house?”

“Yeah, but Mommy we don’t have any fancy lamps anyways.”

I guess the clearly laid out message in The Berenstain Bears Tell The Truth, wasn’t as crystal clear as Stan and Jan had hoped.
