Cuz that's what teens do best.....torment their mamas.
He has set the trampoline next to our deck.....and I'm sure you can guess what he is doing.
The first time he did it I was sitting at the kitchen table and he yells "look mom!!!!" then he takes a flying leap off the deck (with a smirk on his face).yeah that's the smirk....right there....
I almost burst a blood vessel.
Then I almost strangled my kid.Now he's doing it all the time.
But I'm getting used to it....or that's not really true....I just know not to look when Tony says "look mom!!".I'm also not falling for "can you come out here for a second mom?" or "the house is on fire mom!!" or "Help mom! I'm really hurt!" So today when I heard Tony trying to talk Mac into taking the leap...I ignored it. And when I heard Mac finally giving in and agreeing to give it a try....I put my fingers in my ears, closed my eyes and said 'lalalalala'.
And when I heard a unusually large thud and loud moaning....I laughed and said "I'm not falling for that one!!" and went back to what I was doing.
Then Mac came in limping and sporting this....
I tried really hard to feel sorry for her....really, I did.
But this is my child who tries to tell me that this is safe....
And she thinks I'll be letting her drive anytime soon...HA!
