First of all, I want to let you all know why I think my son wanted to stay home and not go to his grandparents' house yesterday. He came down with a nice case of poison ivy. I guess it was only a matter of time before that happened. He spends a lot of time in the woods. So I had to deal with that today.
Anyway, my story here doesn't have anything to do with that. It has to do with the power outages we've been experiencing due to the massive thunderstorms that have been rumbling through my neck of the woods. This evening the power went out yet again. It was pretty dark outside. My son and our wonderful German Shepherd, Schultz, decided it would be a good time to have a berserk and run around the house.
They started running like complete maniacs, bumping into furniture and making lots of noise. Of course they could barely see anything.
"Hey, knock it off," I said. "You're going to get hurt!"
But they were too riled up. Around and around they went, giggling and barking like a couple of idiots.
Mother Nature helped me out a bit, because suddenly there was a huge clap of thunder right above our house. Those boys stopped in their tracks. They both came and sat down next to me.
"Mama, is Mother Nature angry?" my son asked.
"Yeah. She doesn't like when you don't listen to your Mama."
"Okay," said my son. "I'll listen to you, because I don't want you or Mother Nature mad. You guys are scary!"
LOL, how cute. He doesn't want you or Mother Nature to be mad. Sorry to hear about the poison ivy. Hopefully your son won't feel the need to scratch too much.ReplyDelete
He's doing okay. He says it itches, but the medicine is helping.Delete
haha let's see which one decides to defy mother nature first, bet it will be Schultz.ReplyDelete
LOL! I'm sure you're right!Delete
He is hilarious! That's a good line to use on my kids. Except my little one who thinks even a drop of rain means it's going to flood. Don't know where he got that, but I don't want to emotionally destroy him with your line, so I'll just use it on the big one.ReplyDelete
Haha! I hope it works!Delete
"You guys are scary" -- where does he come up with this stuff? Such a little character!ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Apparently, he's seen the wrath of both Mamas a few too many times.Delete
That's a gem. Some witty thinking on your part and apparently a convincing explanation.ReplyDelete

Now all I need is a thunderstorm every time my boy misbehaves!Delete
Poor kid with poison ivy. Maybe he was already getting itchy and uncomfortable when he said he didn't want to leave. The Hurricane fell into weeds and grass once when she was rollerblading. She got poison ivy and was allergic to it. That child was so miserable that she put her skates under the bed and never rollerbladed again.ReplyDelete
