LESSON OF THE DAY….stealing 101.
We’ve just arrived home from a family outing and upon pulling into our drive we noticed someones Sunday Times had been delivered to our house by mistake.
I look at JMM and ask if he’s gotten the paper yet.
He has not.
He tells me to go grab the one off the lawn.
I say ‘ No fucking way…someone might see me…you do it’.
He says..’ No way!…what if someone sees me!..thats embarrasing!’.
And then we remember.
We remember that sitting in the back seat of the car is a 3.7 year old freeloader and what better time for him to start earning his keep but now.
So we say, nearly in unison…
‘Hey Bubs..see that newspaper lying in the grass?…go and grab it and bring it over here’…and we both hide in the garage and watch.
He waddles off to get it.
He picks it up.
He yells out in an extremely loud voice [cos thats the volume of the Bubs]..
‘Hey!!!…What the HELL!!!..Whats the big idea!..This is a MISTAKE! ….someone left a Meeuse-paper on our garden! Why is there a Meeuse-paper on our garden?’….
Needless to say, I retreated inside and left the boys to it.
You know, having a smart kid can backfire on you.
