Friday night while our friends were visiting, Evan hit Ted in the sandbox. After a fairly useless time-out, I called him over and asked him why would he hurt his friends when he loves his friends. To which he responded “I know Mommy, but something is controlling my brain!” As Dave, Stacy and I attempted to restrain the giggles, Stacy asked if it was something bad? Evan answered in the affirmative, so she told him to just tell the bad thing to leave him alone because he’s a good boy. So he returned to play, all the while chanting “Go away bad thing, stop controlling my brain, I am a good boy!”
