What's the problem?

For the last few days, Aaron has spent his time tormenting Max.



Day 1


Max came up to me sobbing.
Me: "What's wrong?"
Max: (between sobs)"Aaron said that I'm in his tummy!"
Me: "Well, are you?"
Max: "No."
Me: "Then what's the problem?"


Max calms down and walks away.



Day 2


Max comes up to me sobbing.

Me: "What's wrong?"
Max: (between sobs) Aaron took my nose!"
Me: "Feel your face, is your nose there?"
Max: (feels his face) my nose is here"
Me: "Then what's the problem?"

Max calms down and walks away



Day 3


Max comes up to me sobbing.
Max: "Aaron says he's going to take my eyeballs!"
Me: "Do you really think he can do that?"
Max: "No."
Me: "Then what's the problem?"
Max calms down and walks away.



Day 4

Max comes up to me sobbing
Max: "Mom! Aaron said I set off the alarm and the police are here to get me!"
Me: "Did you hear the alarm?"
Max: "No."
Me: "Are the police here?"
Max: "No."
Me: "Then what's the problem?"


Max calms down and walks away.





I'm beginning to think that Aaron's sense of humor combined with Max's imagination and gullibility are the problem.

Poor Max....at least he believes YOU when you tell him Aaron is just teasing him.

My big brother had me convinced that my parents bought me for $.25 from the Salvation Army. (I am the youngest and he is 9 years older).
I never thought to ask my mom about it...Max is smarter than I am!
Love that Max!

My daughter had a huge crisis in McDonalds once because some other little girl told her she was a "bad girl." The exact same conversation and results ensued.

My nephews still our little guy's name. Yes, his name. At least you can convince Max that his nose and eyes are still there. Wish it were that easy with a name! haha :)

It's lucky your his mom, because I totally would have fed into and told him his eyeballs and nose were missing.

Just wait until Aaron starts "not touching" Max. Ah the pain!

Okay this is funny but i have to say that Kristina is onto something here. I so would have played into it and made him scream louder. I am a baaad mother.

The problem around my house is that "then what's the problem?" is not followed by calming down and walking away.
