Say What?

Dear Readers,

Lately, I have been known to ask T-boy what God put those ears on his head for.
Here are some ideas I came up with:
  • Handles to steer him in the right direction
  • Decoration
  • Something to hold his hat up
  • A guide to measure when he needs a haircut
They must be for something!
Let me show you what I mean:
One day I said quite clearly,
"Pick-up your toys, T-boy."
Nothing happened. Well that's not quite true. Actually something did happen - it just wasn't what I wanted - he went right on playing. I prepared my armor and moved into battle stance.
"Did you hear me, Young Man?"
Ahhh, a reaction...
He looked up at me and in an oh-so-innocent voice said,
"Did you say, 'That's a boosy-head'?
"No!"
"Oh! That's what I thought you said."
My armor was slipping by this point under the strain of suppressed laughter. So I broke out the big guns, my friends.
Let 'er rip!
"NICE TRY, BUSTER! PICK UP YOUR TOYS! AND I MEAN NOW!
DON'T MAKE ME TELL YOU AGAIN!"

Whew! That was a toughie! I think I better brush up on some focus techniques. He almost had me there.


This is the kid who has the nerve to rebuke me for not understanding his words (mouth-full of PB/J and all).
"No, Mom, not like that! You're not listening to me!"
And when I get it right,
"Yes, that's what I was talking for."
Well, excuuuuuuuse me!


Maybe those ears are for keeping tabs on my phraseology so it can be hurled back at me at the most annoying moment possible.
I think it's a guy thing!



Love,
Un-heard In NE

  7. I can so relate to dealing with a boy not listening, my mom always told us that men/boys have selective hearing!! I am always telling my boys to turn their ears back on so they can hear what I am saying!! I am already enjoying your blog!! :)
