Of other people’s kids.
And maybe a few of mine too!
Because you know that there is no way I can go a week without sharing a picture of this sweet face…
Even though, let me state for the record that, as of late, this face has not been spending much time in the sweet department.
He’s decided to make the Terrible Two’s earn their keep around here and in so doing has coined the phrase, “NO WAY SORBET!” (and yes, he yells it. Every. Single. Time.).
He uses his new term each time he is asked to sit at the table, go upstairs for bath, eat his dinner (no, scratch that, he ALWAYS eats his dinner, and his lunch and his breakfast, and a number of smaller meals surrounding these), put on his shoes, pee in the house (as opposed to in the yard or off the deck), wear underwear, clean up his toys, get in his car seat, or do anything that wasn’t an idea initiated by his sometimes-evil-always-plotting little brain.
Dumb Dad says it’s my fault.
Because I’m a fan of using the phrase “No way Jose!” as an integral part of my parental discipline strategy. It goes hand in hand with, “No Sir!”, “Fugetuhboutit!”, and “Oh no you didn’t!”
I says it’s Dumb Dad’s fault.
Because pretty much everything bad just sorta is.
Point is that, when you combine his reluctant attitude, with his night fear of his bed (seriously outta control scared to go to sleep at night), and his inability to recognize that the two other children living here are mine as well, not just his personal playmates sent here to do his bidding, he’s become quite the
tyrannical mastermind difficult member of the Dumb Family.
I know. No need to lecture.
We need to nip it in the bud. Stop it while we can. Or we’ll be sorry in the future. This is why the world is going to Hell in a hand basket (do you even know what a hand basket is?)! Moms like me. Parents like us. Blah. Blah. BLAH!
We are working on it.
So instead of chastising me (you-one-evil-judgmental-commenter-who-wreaks-havoc-on-sites-just-because-you-suck), why not peruse some of the DON’T HATE ME BECAUSE I’M BEAUTIFUL PHOTO CONTEST FOR UNBELIEVABLY CUTE KIDS entries.
