We don’t negotiate with terrorists

Me: Ok, Evan, Sean, Daddy, we’re leaving the park in ten minutes.

 

My husband: Sounds good.

 

***

Me: Evan, Five minutes!  Sean, five minutes!

 

My husband: Ok, five minutes.

 

***

Me: Ok.  We’re going!  Sean, Evan, one more time down the slide, and then we’re leaving.

 

Evan: How about two more times?

 

Me: No, just one more time.

 

Evan: Ok. Ok. How about three more times?

 

Me: No, just one more time.

 

Evan: Ok.  Ok.  How about one more time and four more times?

 

Me: We don’t negotiate with t- With boys.  One more time down the slide.

 

Evan: Ok.  Ok.  Two more times!

 

Evan finished going down the slide and started to climb up again.  I close lined him and carried him over my shoulder until I dumped him in the wagon. 

 

Me: Just one time.

    As least dumping him in the wagon didn’t turn into the walk-of-shame we normally encounter when it’s time to go and suddenly the otherwise ignored slide is of utmost importance.

    I’m glad I’m not the only mommy that practices my wrestling moves on the kids. I can clothes line a kid like nobody’s business and I’ve got the meanest samckdown on the block 🙂

    avarra~ Hopefully they don’t threaten you with retaliation.
    spook~ Thank you. Hope you stumble by again sometime.
    ck~ You know, I think I loss my shame when I started walking the other “walk of shame” back in college. So if he wants to scream his head off all the way home, I really could care less. I’ve walked away from more embarressing things 😉
    KathyB!~ Awesome! We should have a wrestling mom contest! That would be awesome!

    It’s possible; I didn’t count heads 🙂
