Dinner can be pretty chaotic in this house. Pretty much like every other house with two small children at the table. We have fights every night about how much you HAVE to eat before you can leave the table and I like to think I win more than I lose…OK maybe not but it is getting better. Though they do eat vegetables so I won’t complain about that.
Tonight we were having either mash or rice with mince and vegetables. Everyone eats it even if it doesn’t sound so nice.
Hayden doesn’t like to get his clothes dirty and wet, and tonight managed to tip some water down his pants. So he gets off his chair and takes his pants off and gets up and keeps eating.
Then Mikala gets off her chair (world best copycat!) and says, “I have potato on my pants,” and takes her pants off too.
Then while I have a huge mouthful of rice, hubby stands up and takes his shorts off! The look on the kids face was priceless. But they didn’t say too much and kept eating.
A couple of minutes later Hayden dropped some of his tea on his shirt so then he takes that off…and now I have two copy cats one who is only 3 and a 38 year old who thinks that it is hilarious that having tea in only knickers or jocks is a good idea.
As you can imagine since I am always the responsible one – I was sitting there trying not to choke on my dinner, be serious and not laugh at the shenanigans and ended up with tears streaming down my face.
I gave up on tea and sent them all to the bath and shower!
