Changing Weather

Posted on February 19, 2011. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing |

Remember the scene in Mary Poppins where “a storm is a’ brewin?”  That’s happening in our house right now.  There’s a storm a brewin’ and the kids are going to have it out.  I think BigD and I will just step back and see what happens.  It could be more entertaining than anything on cable tonight. 

Preview: Cut to the mom looking out the front door watching her son stroll by with the wheel barrow and shovels.    Younger sister following closely pig tails blowing in the wind.  Younger sister has to detour to the house for a quick potty break.  Meanwhile older brother begins digging.  Cut to the father investigating what son is doing and discovers he is digging where all the lines run to the house. 

Father: You can’t dig there.  You’re going to cut through one of the wires.  Just pick all this stuff up and come inside. 

Younger sister: No – I didn’t get to dig anything yet.

Older brother to sister: You have to come help me bring everything in.

Younger sister: NO – I didn’t get to dig anything.

Mom to younger sister: You pick up the balls and he will put away all the digging stuff.

Younger sister rushes outside and screams at older brother: IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT

Mom to younger sister: that wasn’t very nice.  What do you mean it’s all his fault?

Younger sister to Mom: It’s his fault I didn’t get to dig.  He picked the wrong spot so we had to stop.  It is his fault.

End scene with mother looking both bewildered and bemused.
