Do Your Kids Do This To You, Too?

LegalMist's Son ("LMS"): Mommy?

LegalMist ("LM"): (Trying to type something in the computer for work) Ummm ... what?

LMS: Can I watch tv?

LM: No. Go play with some of your toys.

* * *

LMS: Mommy?

LM: (Still trying to work) Ummm ... what?

LMS: Did you know that Spiderman was bit by a spider and that's how he got his powers?

LM: LMS, mommy's trying to work right now. Can you go find some toys to play with please?

* * *

LMS: Mommy?

LM: (Getting a little frustrated) What?

LMS: Did you know that I'm Spiderman?

LM: LMS, I'm trying to work. Please don't talk to me right now.

* * *

LMS: Mommy?

LM: (A little more frustrated) WHAT?

LMS: Spiderman always catches the bad guys.

LM: LMS, PLEASE go find some toys to play with and don't talk to me right now.

* * *

LMS: Mommy?

LM: (Very frustrated) WHAT?!?

LMS: The movie Spiderman is just the pretend Spiderman; I'm the real Spiderman, and I'll keep you safe if any bad guys come in, ok?

LM: LMS, GO DO SOMETHING ELSE! I can't talk with you right now!

* * *

LMS: Mommy?

LM: (extremely annoyed) WHAT DO YOU WANT NOW?!?!

LMS: I love you!

I should have let him watch tv.

haha - that's hilarious. thankfully my cat can't talk...he just tears up toilet paper.

Jenners said...

yes... this sounds very familiar!!! And then they get you in the end with the "I love you." They know just how far to push and then retreat!

Hahaha, and then when he really DOES turn out to be spiderman, it will be all Your fault for not recognizing it earlier! Trust me when I tell you that you cannot possibly win at this game!

I've so been there. And then you feel a huge guilt trip that they're so loving still. Sigh, I've had many of those conversations...

Thanks for sharing with BPOTW!
