Something That Doesn't Happen Normally.

If i had to say one thing that doesn't happen normally i think it would have to be, being given a compliment from any of my children. Everyday we hear the same thing what great food you made mum, and mum thanks for doing this and that, but you will never normally hear is something positive about me.
In the house i'm normally the ogre, the bad cop,  the enforcer or whatever you want to call it so compliments or gratitude is not something i regularly hear.

So boy was i a happy bunny this morning when Marie phoned me to inform me that she had attempted to take the wheelchair up the stairs, it's something i've been doing for the last week or two when taking the boys to school because i got so sick and tired of having to push it up a stupid hill where cars and lorries etc were driving by, and i actually found it A) quicker and B) easier.

Unfortunately Marie didn't have the same kind of luck and later informed me that she was indeed absolutely knackered after getting him up there, if you don't know myself and Marie we are pretty unfit people so trying to climb those stairs on foot without pushing anything is a challenge in itself, and adding a wheelchair with a 20+kg child to the mix just makes it even more unpleasant. 

Apparently on the way up the stairs the boys were singing my praise like there was no tomorrow, saying things such as "Mum, Ben is much better at this than you are" and "Mum, Ben does this alot faster than you, and he is not as tired at the end".
I mean this stuff is absolute priceless, i was so happy when Marie phoned to tell me. It's just nice to hear once in a while that indeed Ben you do kick ass and do something better than mummy.

So to my two little boys i would like to say "Thank you, you guys rock!" and to Marie, well without being mean and vindictive "Hahahaha, you suck!"

Aww thats so cute the boys do think the world of you are all( joke on the side)I couldn't so giggling to myself not because the boys think you are better at pushing the wheelchair up to the school or even being faster and taking them up the hill to school but at the fact I could see your cheesy big grin on your face when Marie phoned to tell you the boys think you are better at it than her :)Poor Marie she is never going to live this one down I can hear you know who's the greatest at taken them to school (Oh that will be me then you suck at it laugh )I think I know you to well Son what do you think hahaha am I right

What made me most pissed this morning however was more the fact that after climbing the damn stairs and hearing nothing but how badly i was performing and how great Ben is at doing it, Max turned around to me at the end of it and said " You took so long now mummy, you better hurry or you'll miss your buss"...
Damn kid!!! :D
