T and I had a small argument yesterday during which he told me he had taken the garbage down the other day it was my turn. I explained that it was a chore and I do lots of them, he only has a few.
He stomped out of the house and when he returned with a red nose and a surly attitude he was not impressed I had neglected to tell him about the weather. I could not help it I had to needle him.
T: You could have told me that it was freezing out!
Me: Um it is January that is a given.
He storms passed me into his room. I poked my head in and looked at the rounded hump with the blankets pulled up to his chin. He had his back to me.
Me: Are you seriously upset with me?
Me: For how long?
Me: Til tomorrow?
I left his room laughing. Am I wrong in this? Like really? We live in Manitoba Canada, it is always cold in the winter. We were under an extreme cold weather warning.
And yet I should have told him it was cold out? You know if I had he would have been mad at me for that and I would hear ‘I am not dumb mom!’
No winning for me. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
T and me are at home together this week with my holidays and his school break. Yesterday it was announced they were going to have the kids do remote learning for a week returning to in-person learning Jan. 17. With how contagious the Omicron strain the teachers and school divisions wanted to ensure safety was first.
My first attempt to wake him this morning was just me jabbing him to make sure he was still breathing. Why would I do this? Thomas. And his crying. Running back and forth.
My second attempt scared him. Again. I leaned over his bed, looming and stared at him. When that was not enough I said his name. His eyes fluttered open and his face disappeared into his head and chin. As I roared with laughter telling him I wish I had a camera to take picture of his face he informed me I was in no way, shape or form funny. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Even as I write that I am crying with laughter.
T came meandering into the kitchen after I told him to use bathroom as I want to go in for a soak. At the moment we have milk and water to drink. T had milk with his breakfast. I watch as he goes to the cupboard, opens the door before I say:
If you are getting milk do not get another cup use the other one.
T closed the door and walked passed me.
Were you seriously going to get another cup for milk?
