Don’t you hate it when you ask your kids a question and they totally ignore you? I mean, seriously, don’t you hate it?? Well, I may have found something that will fix their hearing in a hurry. Hee-Hee!
I’m all for The Force, and everything. But when I’m trying to get things ready in the morning, punctual answers make me happy.
So I turned abruptly and said to him, “O.K., you owe me a hug.”
He froze. (Ha! He CAN hear me!)
“What?? Why??” he said, all incredulous.
“You owe me a hug because you didn’t answer me.”
“No way!” He backed up against the wall like I was the boogie man. Great for a mom’s ego, by the way.
“Yep. Come on.”
He continued to stare at me.
After a few seconds, he said, “No, YOU give ME a hug.”
“O.K. I can do that.” (a hug is a hug, right??)
As I started to wrap my arms around him, he stipulated, “But no kiss!”
I had to giggle.
After the deed, he not only picked out his coat, he put his milk back in fridge and got his book bag ready to go. Whoa! Now we’re talking!
I can’t WAIT to try it out on his older brothers!!!
Tricky, I know. Lol!
