i freely admit that i tease my children.
it is my God-given right.
whatever works for my gentle readers.
there was a time i told the kids they could pick out anything they wanted in the store that was under $1 and i would buy it for them, they ran off giddy with joy that i actually let them pick something out.
we were at costco.
the hubby still says it was so mean, yet he can’t stop laughing.
i say i got my shopping done extra quick that day because they were off looking instead of asking me for everything.
then there was the time i convinced them that after their strep test they could not talk for 10 minutes.
i even started the timer on my watch for them to tell them exactly when they could talk again.
they listened so well, they would not even answer the doctor’s questions.
i gave in at 3 minutes.
last night, i convinced my daughter that one side of her headphones were broken.
every time she would put the headphone on, i would just turn down the volume and pretend i could hear it in the side i was listening to.
it’s just too easy.
it’s just too amusing.
i can’t stop.
this morning i tried to convince my daughter she was color blind by telling her my eyes were actually brown when she mentioned how blue they are.
“what do you mean blue?” i asked.
“they are blue.” she said.
“honey, my eyes are brown, always have been.” when i say this with a concerned look in my eyes, it helps.
the hubby was standing next to me and i thought i could immediately get him to help.
“honey, what color are my eyes, blue or brown?”
“blue.” he said with a confused look on his face as to why i was asking.
“HA! i knew it!!!!” the daughter said as she walked off.
obviously, the teasing and making my children think they are color blind falls firmly on my shoulders.
a mother’s job is never light and never done.
