Ok- I think it is time to start training them to ask for a lawyer before being interrogated. Because it is very obvious to me that they are proud of their poor choices. I also think it is time for another sweep through both houses to find their hidden stashes of candy/blueberries/chocolate. Four those of you who don’t know- this is not the first time these two Heathens (a word Kristen’s husband uses to describe the boys that he derived from their names -Ethan(with an H), Harrison and Nathan)have gotten into their secret stash of no-no goodies and hidden as they consume massive amounts of something that is either going to make them puke or turn their poo the color of playdough. They are too smart. Brilliant, actually. They know that we are not going to let them eat chocolate at 10 am, so they hide it cuz mom can’t say know to something she doesn’t know about. Today they threw a baseball at a workman’s car. They both plead not-guilty and promptly pointed the finger at the Easter Bunny. Maybe that is where they got the chocolate…
As a mom of two boys, I thought this was so FUNNY. My oldest is 8 years old and I ALWAYS find chocolate wrappers everywhere. In the sofa cushions, in the back of the refrig, under the sofa, under the bed, in between the sheets of his bed… the list goes on. But he always points the finger to his brother who is not even 3. Boys!
I just want to say that I find your site rather disturbing. Ok, I understand the whole “mommy needs a cocktail” or beer, wine, etc. to take the edge off when you’ve had a bad day…but to exploit how bad your kids are on the site is just horrible. If your child has done something he knows he shouldn’t have done (or even if he didn’t know since it seems he’s 3?) then you discipline him. Making an “interrogation” video and posting it on your site is not going to fix any problem that comes up. It’s clear as day that the boys find it funny they are being questioned. It’s almost as if you want them to misbehave so you have something new to post on your blog.
I’d say you don’t half-ass parent…you’re a fraction of that even. You clearly need something more than a cocktail (i.e. counselor, supernanny, etc.) to show you the ropes on how to raise a child in this world.
I am laughing so hard I have diet coke coming our my nose (not to mention it sprayed all over my laptop screen!!!). It is amzing how fast Ethan’s friend sold him up the river….and Ethan’s expression is priceless (he goes back and forth between pride and amusement)!!!
And for the record—-Holly needs a cocktail and to lighten up!!!
We were fostering a little boy once, when he was about 1 1/2 yrs or so. One day we couldn’t find him, we were seriously panicking because he would leave the house and walk into the street and stuff like that if we didn’t watch him close. We finally found him hiding behind the curtains in the living room obviously eating chocolate. We still laugh about it.
