The Brilliance Of The Feminine Mind - Part II
One Sunday morning after the kids had eaten their breakfast, I stayed sitting at the kitchen table to finish a cup of coffee and talk with my wife.
"Why don't you two go downstairs and build a castle with the Mega Bloks and I will come down once I have finished my coffee"
"How many minutes, Daddy?"
"I don't know. I just want to finish this cup of coffee and talk with Mommy a bit more."
Within two minutes, both of them were back up the stairs and loitering around the kitchen table.
"Are you done yet??"
"No. Go down stairs. I will be down really soon. You can play in your rooms or downstairs, but you need to be out of the kitchen in five seconds 1…..2…..3….4….5"
They scurried off and then camped out on the stairs to the basement, staring up at us like two little raccoons peeking in through a window.
"You two NEED to go downstairs right now. Anyone who even puts one foot in the kitchen before I come downstairs will be put in their room immediately."
"Oh…all right!" (said as they walk down the stairs)
Another two minutes passes, and I overheard my daughter giving instructions to her younger brother:
"Hey, go upstairs into the kitchen and tell Mommy that you need to go potty"
"I HEARD THAT!"
