The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week
Sweet Boy#3–Takes off his clothes for a tub and tossed them aside…right into the toilett.
Sweet Boy#1–While Sweet Boy#2 is going potty, he grabs his video game controller and makes his brother’s Mario run in front of a boulder and get killed…twice.
Sweet Boy#3–I set up a movie for my sick little boy and go into the bathroom to take a nice tub…but my sweetheart pauses the movie for me while I’m it the bathroom and knocks on the door several times to make sure that I know that he is waiting for me. It was a short tub, but a very nice showing of Wall:E, cuddled up with my littlest boy.
Boy#2 and Sweet Boy#1–Spent much of our time watching “Planet Earth” arguing over which glo-worm or bat hawk they were. “I’m that glo-worm that just ate the dragonfly.” “No, that’s me. I just ate the dragonfly!” “I’m the bat hawk that just swooped down and killed those 5 bats.” “No!!!!! That was me!!!!!!”
But the winner this week–Have you every tried to give firm but fair consequences to your children while you are sick with the flu and a bad cough and can’t talk loud enough to be heard? It is harrowing. And there was a moment this week when I had just handed out a consequence to my oldest boy and he became upset with me…so he did the obviouse. He ran into the other room, found a squirt gun, filled it with water, and snuck out into the dinning room to lean around the door and squirt me! Ugh!!!
