What I Did On My Summer Vacation



The funny thing is that he's a good rider...

Wow. That is a Tantrum.

Let's break it down:

"(over child screaming)If you're taking video, you want to hold it the other way because otherwise, you're going to make people sick..." = 1 WMP. Nerves of steel.

"That's where you let the black fly bite you. It itches doesn't it?" = 1 WMP. Snap!

"(while pulling the bike forward with screaming child on it)Push the pedals!" = 1 WMP

"If you crash into my car, I will be very unhappy." = 1/2 WMP. That was actually pretty tame...

"If you're not going, you're going to take a nap." = 1 WMP.

"You're crying and having a whiny fit...because you DO want to ride." = -1 WMP. Reasoning with him.

"Then, why did you get your brother's helmet out and ask your dad to get out your bicycle?" = -1 WMP. More reasoning.

Your score for this incident: 2 1/2 WMP. That's pretty solid.

Ah, if only you'd heard what I said in my head. Thanks for cracking me up!

i have to ask. are you plotting the WM win with your children? are they in on your scheme helping your earn points? LOL...poor Ross. and you video taped it too....you earn WMP's and Chris gets a couple of WDP's for the assist!

where was he not going btw?

He was not going around the block, on grounds that he cannot ride a bike anywhere except Duke Island Park. Where they sprinkle the grounds with magical youcanrideabikehere dust? I was SO much less sarcastic than I could have been...

FYI, later that very same day, Ross tooled around the block several times with Chris and we suspect that he'll shortly be riding as often as possible every day, since a girl in the class ahead waved at him when they went around the corner.
