The Policeman is Gonna Get Ya'

On the way back from church Kyle was not cooperating with putting his seatbelt on (this is a frequent battle with him). He is in a booster which allows him to use the regular car seatbelt. Anyway, he is in the back of the Expedition messing around when we start driving home...Kevin and I just assume that he is already buckled up when we hear him whine from the back seat. We realize at the same time that Kyle has not buckled up and is currently trying to get the thing clipped thinking this is just so funny, ha ha. So we both tell Kyle that he better hurry up because the policeman is going to pull daddy over and take Kyle away because he does not have his seatbelt on. Kyle thinks about this (for a milisecond) and gets upset, crying by now and yelling at my husband to stop driving. Since this is quite fuuny my husband and I cannot resist and continue to tell Kyle the policeman is going to get him if he does not hurry up...Kyle is screaming and crying by this time (practically hysterical and constantly turning around to look out the window) and we are laughing so hard we can hardly see the road in front of us. Kyle did get his seatbelt clipped (yea!), crisis averted, and is all smiles the rest of the way home.

Oh, I think this may be worth 2 points. One for threatening incarceration for your son and one for laughing at him while he cried. Although I might be temped to take one back since it was all in the name of his safety.

How hilarious would it have been if you'd ACTUALLY been pulled over while this was going on?

I concur with the two points - Kyle is such a sensitive lad that telling him of imminent incarceration and laughing about it were likely to induce apoplexy. Still, that's freakin' hilarious.

One of these days Kyle is going to call DFS on the two of you when he gets old enough to know he can! That was mean but it got the point across and I am sure it was hysterical. Poor baby!

You guys are lucky - the military school threat will probably do wonders for you, when the time comes! When we throw it around here, my eldest is juuuuuuuust polite (read: scared) enough that he cannot actually bring himself to respond, "Bite me," but you totally know he wants to.
