The Tease: When the Youngest Strikes Back

"It's not fair that Ryder gets to stay home all day and play."

"It's not fair he doesn't have to clean as much as we do."

"It's not fair!"

To which I respond, "There is nothing unfair about it, you were once young and got to stay home all day; besides he often is sad and misses you guys and always asks when you are going to be home."

"Ryder helps me clean all day when you guys are at school, plus look he is helping right now!"

"There's a Knott Fair?  Where? I want to go!" (they love that one!)

So yes, life sometimes seems not fair... and sometimes, well sometimes those who have it good like to rub it in a little.

Yesterday I called Lucas and Alex over to come do their homework.  "Oh do we have to?" and the other usual grumbles that come with homework.

"Yes you have to"

At this point Ryder begins running and dancing around the room and singing, yes singing "I get to play now, I get to play now"

Wow, you know, maybe it's not fair.

  1. Yes, it's those cute & innocent looking ones that you need to watch out for. You never know what they're going to do or what's going on in their little minds.

    1. Kids definitely do catch on quickly and catch on how to tease quickly too :)

  6. Silly boy! He better rub it in while he can because the days are fast approaching when he'll be sitting at the same table with them doing his own homework!

    1. Yep that is what I always try to tell them when they say it isn't fair, that they had days of just playing too.
