Proud Mommy Moments--It's Screaming Time

I love this Meme as it gives a Mom a chance to boast, or to share some humiliation hoping she is not the only one.  Today, I am the latter.  So what is it?  Well after two weeks of free play, it's hard to get back into the routine of school, class, teachers and work.  

On Ryan's first day, I told him to have a good day and go for "blue" for his behavior color.  Blue would be "good."  He came home telling me he was on yellow.  Yellow is only a warning color.  I asked him what for.  He said, "For spanking butts."  At this point, I am a little shocked, but then I realize we do this at home as a form of play.  I quickly told him it's not a game for school.  It's our game at home.  I had to suppress the laughter that was building up.  It still makes me laugh.

On Emily's second day, she created a stomach ache.  We have been dealing with this for a while now.  Well, I put my foot down.  She did too, "I will just call you."  Nice.  I told her I would simply tell her to go back to class like last time.   She screamed.  Like a two year old.  Yeah that was a proud moment.  But guess what?  She still went to school.

Do you have a boasting moment?  A moment of shame?  Or a funny?  Link up with Emmymom and KMama.

The stomach ache is the bane of my existence.

Emmy said...

Yes sometimes I realize the things we play at home really should be stopped as kids have no filters :)

And good for you for putting your foot down. Sorry you are dealing with that still

Funny! Sad for your son for the confusion, though.

Tantrumming children is so not fun. Honestly, I cannot deal with it. Time out and Tough luck are things my children hear quite frequently.

You could always go to class with the tantruming kid, (evil laugh). A stomachache at school AND a mother sitting in the backrow of the class.

at least you sent her on to school! Maybe she'll get over that... right?

LOL at spanking butts. BOYS!

Buddy likes to pull the stomach ache issue too, and Buster is starting in on it.

Thanks for linking up!
