The Baby is 18 months, while the Brat is 6.5 years old.
The baby had created a mess in the Brat’s room, and I was getting her (the Brat) to clean it up. Trying to get on her right side, I said, “I don’t like your brother. He’s very naughty. I’ll dump him in the dustbin.”
The Brat’s response: “Daddy, you shouldn’t say things like that. He’s my brother”
“But your brother’s really naughty, and I don’t like it that he makes all of us do this extra work. I think dustbin’s a really good idea!”
“Daddy! (hands on hips) He’s a little baby. (cools down) Let him grow up. Then you can throw him in the dustbin!”
