The Boy has been finding ways to push my buttons this week. Of course, he’s fourteen so that’s no big surprise. The logic of a teenaged boy’s brain is pretty mystifying.
I commented about one such conversation the other day on this blog post http://wine-y-wife.com/i-need-a-time-out/. I just recently found Rhonda and she's a pretty cool chick so check her out. Here is what I wrote:
Six thirty in the morning is far too early for conversations like that. Momma needs a couple of hours in the morning to build up strength for the day.
Then came the grapes…….
I bought a nice big bag of grapes on Tuesday thinking that they would be nice in our lunches. I took them out the next morning, put some in my lunch bag then left the bag of grapes on the counter for the kids to put some in their lunches. I came home that night, went to get something out of the freezer and found the whole bag of grapes in the freezer. Now, I know that he likes frozen grapes for a snack and I always let him put some in the freezer but the WHOLE thing?! I went and gave him hell for putting ALL of the grapes in the freezer , you know, somebody else might want some!
The response: “Well, it was either put them in there or leave them out all day”
Huh? Have we never heard of something called a fridge?!
The response: *shrug*
To be fair though, he did redeem himself the next night by cooking supper – the sausages anyway – on the BBQ. He did a pretty good job too; no hacksaws needed!
It’s also nice that he’s tall enough now to reach stuff that I can’t. I’ve put that ability to use a couple of times this week.
Okay, I guess I’ll keep him
