Jack: I’m not arguing! I’m just telling you how you’re wrong!
That was how our “discussion” ended.
I didn’t want Jack to mow the lawn with a broken toe in a shoeless ortho boot. I told him to put a sneaker on and then the boot.
Jack: That doesn’t matter! The sneaker isn’t going to protect me from the lawn mower blade, it’s still gonna do the same damage to my foot!
me: Oh that’s a good argument.
I just told Jack to hurry up in the shower. I went up to look and he had his iPod set up with his black light water speakers. Ready for an event in the shower! Oy!
me: How long do you plan on being in there? Be quick ok?
Jack: I just arranged an entire speaker setup. It’s not going to be quick.
Right now it sounds like a concert in the bathroom. 🙂
Here’s Jack mowing the lawn in his boot! Use the term “lawn” loosely.
We have a running tally in our house. Or, rather, we did until Moca outgrew it…How many days without pee or poop in the house. 🙂
There would always be some freak accident (my fault for not paying attention) or a random pee (someone new in the house) etc. so we would sigh and say zero days without an accident. Then it would get up to a week and then 2… I was hoping for a month. But then I received this text. At the bottom. How prophetic of me to send poppy icons prior to the incident eh?
me: Jack, remember how I said to please come downstairs and watch Moca?
Jack: I was busy!
me: Remember I said she had just eaten and would probably need to go out?
Jack: She didn’t even warn me!
me: She had probably already gone before you even came down.
me: Yet I’m the one scooping it up. At least she was kind enough to avoid the rug.
Tomorrow we reset the tally!
