"You're rude too"

So today I am in the car and this little 'discussion' unfolds.....
Evan: (yelling) I said I want noodles for lunch!!
Mom: You do not get to talk rude to me!
Evan: yes I do, you're rude too!
Mom: No I am not rude, you do not be....
Evan: yes you are you get mad at Daddy 
Mom: I am a grown-up and you are not you do...
Evan: Weeelll
Mom: not get to talk like that to...
Evan: Weell
Mom: grown-ups, you talk with respect!!
Evan: Weeelll, I'm Grrooowing!!  
Also my Mom recently was trying to get the kids to listen to me, and so she says to them " one, two... spank you!" with a clap of her hands! Well my kids began chanting it immediately. i had hoped it would be momentary and if we never mentioned it it might be forgotten, but my sis calle dme on my cell while I was at superstore the other day. She asked what that chanting in the background was and sure enough, Evan and Vienna are running ahead of me in the store chanting " one, two spank you" and clapping their hands! Thanks MOM!

Mom Said:
OOPS! Major Nana Backfire eh, Liz?! Sorry! ... I WAS trying to lighten the moment with the kids by making it a bit more of a game to be obedient and it WAS said with a huge twinkle in the delivery- they both caught on immediately- got big grins on their impish little faces and began to obey... although I must admit that this was followed by de rigueur chasing around the kitchen with more clapping hands and 'one two's...' and them giggling as they raced to not get caught.
Sorry, can't quite promise you it won't happen again- alas, I'm addicted to impish grins...
