Well, I guess we can celebrate that we made it 2 months without a broken window. This morning I was doing my dishes as the kids were loading up their back packs for the day.
Hayden was complaining about his sore finger (I had already applied a fresh band-aid to the scratch), probably to get out of going to school today.
Parker started in with the teasing by quoting from "Charlie Bit Me" on You Tube.... "Ouch!" he mimicked in a surprisingly good English accent..."...it really hurts, and it's still hurting!"
Sadly I will admit, as usual , I tuned this all out. If I let this register, it would simply drive me to drink. The next thing I heard was shattering glass. Hayden had thrown his shoe at Parker, who dodged it, scooped it up, and threw it back. It went over Hayden's head and into my front window- right beside my front door. Please refer to this post for the broken window, right next to it. http://samuelsfamilyfrenzy.blogspot.com/2008/07/slamming-doors-and-having-words.html
What does this mean? Should I be mad (I am) should I be happy- Parker loves sports- obviously he has a good arm..... should I get in my car and drive away? Here I am wanting to improve things (read below post) and they are destroying them.
To top it off I called Mike to tell him and ..... he laughed. He apparently understands boys better than I do. Sometimes I wonder why I bother!
