This Isn’t Parenting…….This is Trench WarfareApril 25, 2011 - Author: Ordinary Girl - No Comments
If you get the chance to be on the sidelines during any of these battles, pay attention it could be fun. No seriously!! Tonight it was my great pleasure to sit sideline and watch my husband hoist his son with his own petard :p.
One of the twins had been watching videos on YouTube. Anyone who is on satellite will have just groaned out loud after hearing that……the other half – it sucks up so much of your allowance that your internet will come to a snails crawl if not a screeching halt. So we are down to 33% and he passes along a video link and gets bawled out by his dad for the level. C tells me in private that the video link is so funny, that when his dad watched it, it would be totally worth it. So fast forward, we watch the clip and it is so freaking funny!!!!
They page us using our telephones and he ends up on the phone with his dad. He asks if he watched it and when my husband says of course I did. C immediately counters with well you don’t watch half the stuff I send you. And my husband calmly responds “Yes, I do watch half of what you send”. Caught in his own net, C tried to recover with a comment along the lines of you know what I mean. Again my husband as innocent as a baby says “Isn’t that what you just said”……
They use the technical foul card on us all the time and when C was neatly tucked into the corner, my husband whipped out the card in return and gave him a good dose of his own. Man, sometimes it is good to be King. LOL
