I'm not saying it's a gender thing. Maybe it's just my kids. But my girl & boy definitely have different communication styles. Case in point ...
This note from my daughter was waiting for me when I got into bed last night:
I won't live here. I packed my things.
I am leaving tomorrow. I love you.
This is the first thing my son said to me this morning:
"Hey, Mommy! Guess what got stuck in my pants!"
On an unrelated topic ... when questioned this morning about why she was leaving, A___ said it was because I am "lazy" and never help her clean up her room. This was followed shortly by:
A___: Oops! I peed on the floor a little bit!
Me: Well, clean it up.
A___: See?! Lazy.
