Cute kids, huh? Yeah. I think they are bound and determined to keep me humble/tick me off. I don't know why. I've done nothing but try to make their lives comfortable and happy. But they have it out for me.
Case in point: Church Today
I was stopped by two different people in the hall who said "Landee.... I have a HILARIOUS TBone story to tell you!" I hear those words and I brace myself for the worst. This was worse than the worst.
Apparently the theme this month in Primary is the various roles of different family members. Rumor has it that my son, my dear snarky TBone, raised his hand and said that his mom does nothing. That "she sleeps on the couch for 3 hours every day, no wait, maybe even longer. Yeah she sleeps ALL DAY and doesn't do anything. My dad does EVERYTHING. And she's always on the computer." Uh huh. Yup. He did. This is a classic case of the philosophies of TBone mingled with truth. Everyone knows I blog so obviously the last part is true.... now everyone is like "Hmmmmm.... then maybe that first part was true too?" It's awesome.
Then, I asked JBird if they had the same Sharing Time in Sr. Primary. He said they did and he told me (in such a way that I'm led to believe he thought this would cheer me up) that he said I'm a shopper. A SHOPPER. When I was like "WHAT???" He was like "Well, yeah, cuz you go to the store and we wouldn't have anything if you didn't buy it." K, so I DO the shopping. Freakin A. He also claims he said I'm "fun" but this was after he could see I was near tears so I'm guessing that was a bunch of hraka but I give him points for trying.
All of this is unfolding during church and then as we're walking to go get BeeBee out of the nursery, btw. THEN I arrive at the nursery and BeeBee starts crying that she doesn't want to leave the nursery. She is clinging to the nursery leader saying "I don't wanna go home!" Srsly, you'd think she was beaten daily at home by the way she was acting. What three year old wants to STAY in NURSERY???
TBone says he said it "to be funny." I get that. I do stuff in the name of being funny all the time that ends up hurting someone's feelings/embarassing them. Tis a fine line that I am constantly toeing. It must be in the genes and I'm the latest victim. TBone will, most likely, continue to walk this line the rest of his life as well and I'm sure it's not the last time I'll be the joke.
So we had a little talk about the difference between being funny and just flat out being rude/inappropriate that I think he caught no more than 12% of but whatever. I then told him that since I "never do anything around here " and "I nap 3 hours a day" that he could proceed to fix himself some lunch and not to disturb me for the next few hours. He caught my drift.
Also, I hate daylight savings. In the spring.
Bad bad bad bad day.
