The Boys

The boys were behaving badly, again.  Which ones?  Bubba,  Schultz, our 100 pound German Shepherd, and my husband.  They had the brilliant idea to tease my daughter and make her mad.

"Schultz, go upstairs," my husband said.

Schultz wagged his tail and ran up into what's supposed to be the dog-free zone, no questions asked.

My daughter was in the shower, so her room was vacant.  Bubba led Schultz into the room and closed the door, leaving Schultz alone by himself.

Bubba and my husband giggled and took off.

A few minutes later, my daughter came out of the bathroom and went into her room.  You should've heard her scream!  Apparently Schultz was all over her.

"Mom!" she yelled.  "Why didn't you tell me?"

"I didn't put Schultz in your room," I protested.  "It was your daddy."

"Daddy's grounded!" she announced.  "And I'm sending Schultz into your room tomorrow morning to jump in your bed, because you didn't tell me!"

See? I didn't even do anything, and I get implicated in the boys' devious plots.  Oy gewalt!

  1. I believe your silence makes you a tacit accomplice -- at least, in the eyes of your daughter. lol

  2. Your husband is quite the prankster—or at least the instigator!

    1. You wouldn't believe the things he's done! And the stories he tells from when he was a teenager makes me wonder how he stayed out of jail! ;0)

    1. Right. So I guess we can't really blame him, but he knows he not supposed to go up there!

  7. HA! Sometimes men are just over-sized boys. Life in your house must never be boring, and it's totally cool that your hubby and son can giggle and have fun conspiring together.

    1. My dad and his dad are the same way. So when all three of the boys are together, it's absolute mayhem!

  8. I hate to admit this, because I'm a man of my gender.
    But, they will eventually grow up and then be MEN behaving badly.
    I for real don't know why you ladies put up with us, but I'm glad you do, considering the alternative:
    snuggling up to someone with five o'clock shadow.

  9. Yikes, what a shock for your daughter! I can just imagine Schultz appointing himself King of the Bedroom!

  10. You didn't speak up, so, yes, you're an accomplice. Watch out. I think a warrant has been issued for a Mama arrest.

    Love,
