That's what you get!


ast week was Spring Break for The Boy. So I let him sleep downstairs on the futon beside my bed. He stayed up until God knows when and I didn't wake him up until 10 or 11, depending on how I was feeling.

Saturday (or something) he left me a note that said "Ha Ha, I stole the DVD player!"

As you may remember, he's on punishment for his report card. So I took his cable, his DVD player and his Gamecube.

I let him take the Gamecube upstairs one day last week. Actually, he took it upstairs one day and I didn't care enough to go get it. That's why he took the DVD player. He thought he could get away with it.

I happened to wake up in the middle of the night the day he took the DVD player, so I went upstairs and took the Audio cords for the DVD player and the Video cords for the Gamecube.

It all looks the same until he turns it on.

He comes downstairs the next day all mad and says "What did you do?"
Me - I don't know what you're talking about.
Him - What did you do to the DVD player and Gamecube?
Me - OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH. The DVD player and Gamecube that you're not supposed to have? I don't know. Figure it out.

So he came downstairs and searched all over for the missing parts.

HAAAAAAAAAAA! He didn't find them, obviously

Yesterday we did the laundry, as you know.

I told him that he had to go to bed earlier or it was going to be really hard for him to get up this morning. So I gave him the allergy pills that he hates because they make him sleepy and off he went.

This morning at 7:09 he wakes me up.

Evan - MOM! I've been standing here for a while and the bus hasn't come. And no one else is at the bus stop.

So I had to look at the school calendar. Today is a teacher work day, so he didn't have to go.

But since he was up, I had him wash some dishes and vacuum.



  1. Way to outsmart the smarty-pants! lol!!! And I love the new look... you were right, very light and spring-like... Wonderful, lady!

  2. Aria - It was funny as hell today when he said he was going to watch a DVD and I just said "Oh."

    He came back downstairs with a sourpuss face, LOL!

  3. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  4. Awww I remember the days of "No Nintendo for you Buddy"... After a day or so I wish I could take it back and let him have it. hahaha

  5. Ruth - Thanks for commenting! :-)

    Jane - It's been about 8 weeks of no Nintendo, LOL. My problem has always been that I forget where I hid stuff from him so I've had to start leaving it where he can see it.

  6. It takes nearly every ounce of strength we possess to keep up with them and an extra measure to stay ahead. Great job outsmarting him on the electronics!

    Does he have a way to earn them back?

  7. Carol - A decent report card is his way to earn them back.

  8. That's hilarious!!!!

    I bet he was cheesed off about that lol!

  9. I was so happy when my kids were old enough to wash dishes and vacuum that I made them do it even when they did get good grades. :)

    Also, thanks for visiting Three Words!

  10. Angel - Yes, he was. :-)

    Musing - Well, housework should be a part of the child's daily life anyway. One day they will live on their own and they need to know how to do it for themselves, right?

  11. Haha wait till he gets older and you take things away. If he is like me he'll just replace them haha. At any given time I would have 5 cords for all my appliances. My parents tried to just take the entire unit and somehow I was given a replacement from my friend haha.

  12. Pilot - Shhhhhhhhhhh. If he hasn't figured it out yet, I don't need you giving him any hints!
