Today After School


On the way home from school today, Adam broke a few of our car rules.

To be specific, he hit Grace and started screaming at her, causing me to be distracted and almost hit another car.

To be more specific, he hit Grace because she sang, "I got a slushie, I got a slushie!"

To be even more specific, I might go crazy soon if my 7-year-old hits his little sister over her bragging about a small cherry slushie.

Good night.

Anyways, I pulled over and stopped the car. When he had calmed down, I drove home. When we got home, I asked him to go to his room and make me a list of reasons why he should follow our car rules.

Here's what he came up with:

1) You hate me.
2) You are crule (cruel).
3) I can't play video games.
4) You will call me names.
5) I can't go to school.
6) You won't go to the program.
7) You will hurt me.
8) You will kill me.
9) You won't let me do anything.
10) You will throw me out of an airplane.

Overdramatic much? Yes. Adam gets a papercut and starts crying, "I think I'm going to die!" He's crazy dramatic. I had to fight back the laughter as I sent him back to his room to make a new list.

And once he was gone, I totally cracked up.

...

I mean, I would never kill him. Or hurt him. Or throw him out of an airplane.

And I probably would never call him names.

However, WHY in the world would he think I would punish him by NOT letting him go to school.

It's absurd.

And it is probably the one that made me laugh the most.
