A Lawyer's Daughter

The four year old was doing something annoying while I was driving this morning. I can't remember what it was. She's often doing something to annoy someone else in the car. I yelled back, "Cease that right now!" (Yes, I really said "cease.")

She stated, "I will not. I'll desist." And she stopped pestering her siblings for a few minutes.


Interestingly I have a bad habit (now largely kicked) of using such terminology like "cease" outside of the courtroom as well... Thankfully the people I use it on aren't as witty as your daughter. Most times I just get blank looks.

The question is, did the older brother appreciate her wit? That is really kind of scary, though! Four-year-olds these days...

Children always tend to be a little scary these days...
