Last night at the kitchen table Jack was grumpy and getting in a little bit of trouble. At one point he got up from the table and went to get something from the kitchen. Well, at our house you ask to be excused from the table, so I had him come back and sit down in order to do it correctly. If you can image he was not to happy about this, but The Mom nicely explained the rules to him again. He then proceeded to ask nicely to be excused, but as he got up from the table he leaned into The Mom like he was going to yell at her. The best I can describe this little motion was the little bring it on move you see before two people fight. If you can image that did not go over very well. As the The Mom quietly ( where is the sarcasm font when you need it!) scolded him on what polite behavior was he slipped in the following little Jem.
"I WISH YOU WOULD QUIT TRYING TO RAISE ME PERFECTLY!"
Both The Mom and I had to look away after that one so he wouldn't see us laugh. Man it was hard not to laugh out loud. Good news is that he got himself back under control and managed to hit us up with yet another Jem for the evening.
A little while later while sitting at the table we were discussing misbehavior in a very silly fashion when Jack told The Mom that he would give her a spanking. To which she responded that nope that wouldn't happen. Here is where I chimed in and asked Jack if he know why he wouldn't be able to spank mom. I gave him a hint that she had something he didn't, now my implied thoughts was that she had back up, aka.. ME. Jack didn't catch on to what I was implying, and made his first guess was she had a belt. We all chuckled and I said nope you have a belt too, it's something else. During this whole exchange The Mom is sitting there looking over the top of her glasses giving him the MOM LOOK. You know that look we all have gotten it at one point in our lives (or lots of points for some of us). Well it was with this as a back drop that Jack decided on his next guess.
"A smug look?"
Questioning was over, and everyone is laughing out loud and Jack is stilling there wonder what was so funny. One of these days he will figure it out.
