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!"
