Giving my kid a hard time

Sometimes I like to give my kids a hard time.

Queen Bee asked me last week if I remembered "the fair" that our local Catholic school puts on every summer. Of course I did. But I said I didn't. And that ticked her OFF!

Don't you remember it, Mommy?
Nope.
Mommy! Yes you do!
No I don't.
MOMMY! Door Man, do you remember it?
No.
You're just saying that because Mommy said no.
No I'm not. I don't remember it.
Ok... Monkey, do you remember the fair there?

Now, the Monkey is three. She doesn't remember anything beyond yesterday...

and she said she remembered the fair.

SEE Mommy! I told you! There IS a fair there.
Queen, you know that the Monkey will say yes to anything ... watch this...

Monkey, do you remember when they put that big Santa Claus up in that car dealership?
Yes.
Do you remember the Fort that used to be here?
Yes.
Do you remember when the bridge collapsed?
Yes.

Turning to the Queen, I told her that the Monkey is too little to remember things, and she will agree to anything you ask her (if she's in the mood, of course).

I finally let the Queen off the hook and told her that I did indeed remember the festival at the school.

About two minutes of silence goes by, and the Man looks at me and says....

What bridge?

Are you sure you are not my sister in disguise? I do the same thing...had a long moment with my 6 yr-old about the fact that I am only 25. The look on her face said it all...mama's either losin' it or turning stupid...and she wasn't letting it pass. She LOUDLY asserted that I had told her differently and if that was true then I had her oldest sister when I was 10 and "that's just gross, MAMA!" Dontcha hate it when they discover math is useful?!

Being a mom of three boys...I can absolutely see the Man being late on the draw like that. Love it!

Oh, and it is every parent's right to give their children a hard time. Otherwise, what fun would parenting be? LOL!

Happy Monday, I'm home with mine today. Darn snow. Did you get any with this storm?

Got nothing, Sue. We got some freezing rain stuff yesterday, but they kept telling us to prepare for an ice storm. We were pleasantly surprised yesterday morning...

just means you're a good mom. If you weren't giving the kids are hard time, I'd wonder what kind of mother you were.

Can't wait until they're teenagers, then you can really give them a hard time and have even more fun with it.

I thought kids existed just for crazy mind games like that. My parents did it to us all the time and I already do it with my own kids. lol
