Talking to your spouse through your kids

Do all parents do this?

Jamie and I often speak to one another by talking either to our kids or as if we actually were our kids.

Here's an example.

Jamie to Keira: When do you think Daddy's going to finish that blog post and come to dinner?
Joey to Carson: Your mom doesn't understand "5 minutes" very well, does she?

Or this.

Joey in a voice meant to portray Carson: Mom, when you gonna change my butt?
Jamie in a voice meant to portray Keira: Hey Cowson, you should twy asking Dad, he knows how to change diapews too!

We both laugh at the other and it's fun to have a new, lighthearted way to communicate to one another, especially when it's about things that may otherwise have frustrated us. Putting a fun new voice on it makes it seem a little less significant than it used to be.

All the time. So passive aggressive of me ;-)

Love it. Get it. We do it too. Chuckling over here.

So...when is our family of 6 coming to visit your family of 4?

Ben and I do this constantly, most often it's about changing poopy diapers or feeding :)
