Every time my niece builds something with logs or anything, it is no more than two seconds till her little brother comes over and destroys everything. He always screams, “I want to wreck things,” and while I try to be a tough uncle I can’t help but laugh. Wrecking never was so fun.Yes my kid did that
I had the great opportunity to tend my nieces over the weekend. The best part about the weekend was when Friday morning came and I got them their favorite cereal. We ended up having a great breakfast. After that, we cleaned up, and then I said with great excitement, “How about some cartoons?” I was shocked when my little five year old niece looked at me and said, “Nooooo, please no.” I was shocked at her reply, and didn’t know how to respond. Quickly, her older sister ran up, and said ,”Cartoons are on the T.V.” Once my niece figured out it was the T.V she was excited. Apparently she thought Cartoons was a type of cereal that she did not like. It was pretty funny.Yes my kid did that
While my son was in High School I began to notice that every time he got home from school he was always very willing to get the phone when it rang. At all other times in the day, I never saw him get up once to get the phone. Well one day I figured out why. I was lucky enough to pick up the phone once when he was not around and was pleased to hear a teacher’s voice on the other end stating that he was checking up on my son because he did not see him in class. Apparently this good teacher calls student’s families when they miss or cut class. While, we both laugh at the story now, back then I was pretty upset that my son did not enjoy high school class.Yes my kid did that
My daughter always likes to make up games, and create her own set of rules. Usually meaning she is always winning or the game is just meant for a five year old. Well when she asked to play hide and seek, I was pretty excited. My goal was to hide in the best place so she could not find me. I was quickly thrown off when she said, “Now, go hide, but make it reallllly easy to find you so I don’t get scared. If I can’t find you, I get scared really fast.” I couldn’t help but laugh. Even though hiding wasn’t too fun, playing it with my daughter is always fun.Yes my kid did that
This happened a while ago, but it is still a worthy story to tell. My son drank a sprite can which said, “check the bottom of the can to see if you won a trip to Alaska.” Well, upon drinking the can instead of getting a can opener, he pulled out a knife and started to cut around the can. Very quickly I heard screaming from the kitchen and, yes, the knife had slipped and got his finger. I can say all these years later, he is still proud of the scar that got him that day.Yes my kid did that
When you are an uncle, you really like to just be the “cool” uncle who plays, but the moments problems come up, you hand the kids over to the parents. Well, at least that is always what you hope to do, but when you babysit for five hours, things can always happen. And during lunch, I got the “I need to go to the bathroom.” Well lets just twenty five minutes later, the only thing that needed washing was the bathroom rug, and everything else was good. I guess these are good learning experiences for me though.Yes my kid did that
Yes, my daughter is not yet 2 years old.
Yes, I let her play with my iPhone, even though I would rather her read a book!
Yes, she can navigate how to get into my text messages, photo album and You Tube.
The other day, I was on my computer trying to find a TWEET on Twitter that I had sent out and
found a few tweets I did not recognize. As I opened them, I found a number of Sesame Street videos that
“I” had apparently TWEETED to my followers. I’m quite sure I’d never TWEET my followers about Sesame
Street…..guess who figured out how to TWEET?
I’d better watch my back, next thing I know, she’ll be TWEETING photos of momma raiding the chocolate
stash at midnight!
