Stop the insanity

Here’s a conversation between 2 of my sons yesterday.

Russell – Mom, can I have a granola bar?

Me – sure

Patrick – Can I have one too?

Me – sure

Patrick – Russell, can you get one for me too?

Russell – sure

…a few minutes later, here comes Russ with his hands behind his back

Russell, to Patrick – Pick a hand, any hand.

Patrick – that one

Russell – No, you can’t have that one, that one’s for me.

Patrick – (sighs), ok, then, that one.

Russell – Here. (hands it over)

Patrick – I didn’t want that one!

Russell – Well, which one did you want?

Patrick – the orange one!

Russell – (sighs) ok

…tromps back downstairs. Exchanges granola bars. Tromps back upstairs with hands behind back again.

Russell, to Patrick – Pick a hand, any hand.

    We only have 1 child at this point, but apparently we’re gluttons because we’re considering child #2! thanks for the laugh.

    In our house, that’s what we used to call “the joys of parenthood”. Now, no problems – they’ve all moved out (the baby’s 36). TIP: I used to collect the prizes out of cereal boxes and put them in a bowl on top of the fridge. After about six months, on a crummy or rainy day, I’d get down the bowl and hand them out. (Three kids.) If it was an uneven number of prizes, each kid got one, the rest stayed in the bowl. Just remembered that, and that it tended to work. Maybe there aren’t prizes in cereal any more….maybe prizes are only in cereal no Good Mother would buy — (used to be in good stuff, I never bought anything with pink and green marshmallows in). OK, now I’m rambling. Nevermind.
