A Little Story on My Son

So, we went to my in-laws yesterday for Sunday afternoon. All of John's brothers and sisters were there too, so that includes Jonni and Erik's cousins too. Jonni and Erik LOVE their cousins. Erik has a cousin that is just a couple of months younger than him, Justice. These two are a volatile mix. The adults were upstairs in the living room, and we had unfortunately lost track of the Dangerous Duo. When we finally thought to go looking for them they had struck again! Grandma has a room downstairs where she paints and draws and suchlike, and hangs her work on the walls. The boys had pulled down several of the pictures, and wreaked merry havoc with them. Well, John and his mom went down to sort out the mess, and gave the little boys much deserved tongue lashings. When they were finished, my son proceeded to pull down another picture and throw it will all his might across the room. John said something like "Erik! You tell grandma you are sorry!" Whereas he told grandma he was sorry. Then John said, "Now give yourself a spanking!" He then proceeded to, with all the strength in his little boy body, spank his grandma. I mean he gave it his all! Put his whole body in it. John and grandma laughed so hard, it was hard to tell him why he should not have done that.

P.S. I would like to thank everyone for not making disparaging remarks about my poetry, but in actuality being extremely kind about the whole thing. Thanks for your tolerance.

You're poetry is not tolerated, it's loved!

Extremely funny story, I had no idea Justice could be even more of a rowdy little boy with a helper.

Kids are absolutely nutty! Wouldn't you love to still be able to do the things you got away with when you were a child??? That would be awesome! Or to say the things that kids just blurt out??? My kids` embarrass the heck out of me with things they say and do!

its true, these two find true pleasure in mayhim. they do it with a gleam in their eye. i think they may know that they are going to get into trouble but make the choice that the fun is worth the punnishment.

Man, I laughed so hard when John came up and told how the unrepentant little boy had spanked his grandma with all of his might!

you know bruce, john and i were just talking about that, the unrepentance i mean. it IS totally like he just chooses to do it because it's worth the punishment! sometimes anyway.

its funny, ill say, "get down, do you want get a spanking?" and he will look back at me, slam his little hand down as hard as he can and shout "NO!" and i will say "Get down now!" and start so walk toards him. he usually will say no again but will start getting down. some times he will remain defient and take the punnishment. then go tell on me. to which renae usually sais "daddy told you to get down. you have to do what daddy sais." which starts a whole new crying jag. he is acually getting better. we have seen him know he has reached a limatation and back off some thing or ask for help. they grow up too fast.
