Communication skills are important
Last night we were laying in bed and I was lightly brushing my fingernails up and down Coleman’s back.
Cole: “You’re tickling me. Stop it.”
Me: (not stopping) “No I’m not.”
Cole: (tries to scoot away but he’s trapped between me and the wall) “Yes, you are tickling me.”
Me: (not stopping) “You don’t get to tell me what I’m doing. I’m not tickling you. YOU, however, are feeling tickled. That’s not my fault.”
Cole: “WHY MUST YOU BE SO MEAN?!”
Me: “WHY CAN’T YOU USE ‘I’ STATEMENTS?!”
Cole: go away.
Me: (laughs hysterically)
