Are there times when you kids totally rat you out? Hang you up to dry? Well, that is what J did to me yesterday. TWICE! Both times were at dinner, and thankfully Hubby didnt mention them at all.
I dont even remember what we were talking about but after I said something he rolled his eyes at me. Automatically I snapped that he is not allowed to do that and I never want to see it again. That is where I should have left it but I didnt. I push on. When I asked him where on earth he had picked that up he calmly said "From You". WHAT?!?! When??? Oh crap! He learned it from watching me? I didnt know I even did that....how can I scold him when I dont even know that I do that?
Hubby is a card-carrying member of the Clean Plate Club. I am not. This causes problems. J said he was full before he had finished his sandwich. Hubby tells him he is NOT getting up until he finishes his sandwich and that we are not throwing it away. So he manages to eat two more bites. Then Hubby gets up to use the bathroom. I pick up J's plate and throw his sandwich in the trash. J spends the next 10 minutes asking me if I was ignoring what Daddy said and why I didnt have to do what he said. He would not stop talking about it.
So much for being nice to the kid.
