Don't Argue

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I'm breaking one of my only blogging rules and sacrificing my pride, but I have to share a hilarious quip from Isaac that unfortunately occured while Tony and I were having a "discussion."

See, that's pretty much blogging rule numero uno between Tony and I, that if I ever were to share a heated moment that it would always be a resolved conversation . . . not quite in this situation, but too good to pass up!

So, a little context, Tony and I were driving to church for Ezra's dedication and we were just a little stressed. I woke up tired, wedding sore and just hard pressed to find any positivity in the morning. Tony woke up like he does everyday, happy. You can see where this is going, as the stress of the day built, my attitude wore on Tony and before long, I was the only one with a grip on the day and Tony had started to fly off the handle a little bit.

A few low blows were slung by one party and I reacted with an uncharacteristic over-generalization and exaggeration. I have never said these words previously and felt like it was laughable to spew in the moment, but also hoped that it would be just enough to gain a bit of perspective.

And there they were, just out there "Well, I'm sorrrry it sucks to be married to me!"

Tony quickly rejected the notion and said "No, it doesn't."

But before we could continue the conversation, what do we hear from the backseat?
"It does, Daddy! It does! Don't argue with Mama!"

And while I tried to stifle my laugh at the time, I haven't been able to stop every time I've thought of it since!

The one time he decides to listen . . . And yet he had no problem arguing with us whether he could eat his cone prior to finishing his ice cream! That boy.
And this cool kid insisted he had to wear his sunglasses in the water.Isaac learning too late why you don't eat your cone until you're done with ice cream. #independenttoddler #argumentitive #uhuh

Oh my goodness; the things that come out of children's mouths....

However, this did make me chuckle out loud. :-)

Adorable! Our three year old always steps in whenever we are "discussing" anything. Unfotunately for me, he is always siding with his dad.
