Rotten Is As Rotten Does

My daughter was tossing a napkin back and forth between her hands, when my son looked at her and said, “You’re going to drop that.”

She continued her juggling act and replied, “No, I won’t.”

Then my son raised up his hand and swiftly knocked the napkin to the floor and said, “Told ya you’d drop it.”

  • Dapoppins

    Are you talking about my brother and I?

  • The MomBabe

    Ah, the joys of having a brother….

  • BusyDad

    I should talk, of all people but… There’s no fate but what you make. Looks like he’s internalized that pretty well.

    You know he’s just following the Annoying Brother Handbook, right? All the instructions are in there. My brothers knew it from cover to cover.

  • Nola

    Oh those kids do the darnedest things!!

  • DadGoneMad

    That son of yours is a credit to mankind.

  • Becky

    One day is so going to get pay back for that if she is anything like my daughter! Paybacks happen all the time in my house!

    I shouldn’t laugh but, mwaaaaaaah ha ha ha haaaaaaa.

  • Bec

  • Karen MEG

    Don’t you just love that whole brotherly sisterly love hate thing?

    this is why the great educators of the world have always been men. they really have a grasp on teaching through practical modalities.

    take this for an example. your daughter will always remember this because it was situational and involved her. she now knows something of the physics of napkins, as well as a bit of behavioural psychology surrounding napkin tossing.

    if anything your household is a little *too* educational.

    Ha! Ha! If your son had tried that with my daughter she’d have given him some of her choicest abuses… and probably a good kick, too 🙂
