I just said the dumbest thing to my kids

Two oldest are fighting at the dinner table as usual. Screaming. Middle child says to older bro: “I’m going to kill you and then hit you.”

Older bro says back: “I’m gonna kill you first.”

I turn to them and yell back: “Will the two of you please get along and love each other–and eat your pizza while you’re at it.”

The words were still lingering in the air when I realized just how stupid that sounded.
