He came home and asked how the kids behaved today, and I said that our oldest whined from the second he came back with them this morning (he took them to his mother's for breakfast). She was whining that she didn't go to the job site with him where she has a few toys.
He starts into a lecture about how grateful she should be to have everything she has and two parents, activities, siblings, central air, food, etc. It went on to how he had nothing growing up (very true).
The whole time he is going on this lecture, our middle DD is making commentary. "You know how many times I got taken out for ice cream as a child? When I EARNED money, and that is IF I chose to spend it on an ice cream sandwich"...my middle DD grins ear to ear "MMMMM....I LOVE ice cream sandwiches" and licks her lips. Everything he said, middle DD had an enthusiastic response to. She wasn't the one being lectured.
Right now they're in the hallway, out of middle DD's ears...and I just heard him say "do you think I had anything like a wii growing up?" and she said "well we never get to play it anyway, so its like we have the same childhood".
I think I better go intervene before his head explodes. LOL
LOL!! How old is she? She's def. got her communications skills sharpened already! lol :p Just wait, it gets uh, more interesting! lol :p Glad you were able to lighten the moment. It's important to try to look for humor in your life. Esp. when dealing w/ the kids. That way you won't wanna kill 'em! -LOL :) (JK- not promoting violence to kids!)
