Is That What You Call It?

When my children come up with their own terms for things, it usually makes me smile...

A few months ago, Caleb and I were working outside beside the house while two other children were doing chores in the den. Soon, we heard Clint's voice, and he sounded stern.

Me: "Uh oh, Caleb! Are they in trouble with Dad?"

Caleb walks to the window and listens intently for a minute. Then he answers with a serious tone. "Yep, they're getting a "talking to."
