Colby has learned to read, write, and spell so much in the last two months. Tonight we (I) cleaned his room, read a story and turned out the lights.
Not good enough for Son number one so he begins telling me I am no fun and he is not my friend anymore.
Son number two passed out right away.
Son number one realized the being ugly was not working, especially after I prayed, again and told him to stop being ugly and go to sleep. I realized he was very tired and really just needed to lay there and he’d be out soon.
So S#1 starts this little mantra, “You are a M-O-R-O-N…”
Me, “Colby that is ugly, don’t say it again or you’ll get no TV in the morning.”
Me, “No TV! GO to sleep!”
S#1, very quietly, “m-o-r-o-n…”
Me, “That’s it, your getting a spanking.” I spanked him and told him I love him, but calling mommy a moron is not acceptable.
S#1, “I wasn’t calling you it, I was spelling it.”
Me, “Goodnight, I love you, you are the smartest boy I know.”
He is now asleep. I’m not sure where he learned that, but I was kind of impressed he spelled it correctly.
