Today, I found my PC unplugged and an air freshener in the electric socket.

I know my wife did it because the gremlins have the weekend off and the grandkids, nieces and nephews are not allowed in my study unless they have fried chicken to share.

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      Yep, must have been an Apple, all of those glue fumes wafting through the house got too much.

      Ok, no doubts now, "fitness coupon, toilet air fresher", she wants you to immediately go to the Wooster Feather Emporium and Spa, for a real workout.

      Just be grateful she left out the bar of soap.

      My wife once said to me, "You're over weight and have body odor. Get off your tail end and get to the gym. When you get back please be showered."

      I looked at her with my doe eyes and said "My Dear...whatever do you mean?"
      Yes....yes...I DO enjoy sleeping on the deck.

    Late Breaking News,


    Turns out that my wife had the kids over to help with setting up a birthday party and she tasked the kids with plugging in the air fresheners all over the house and it was my nephew that took the tackle box to my truck and fell asleep waiting on me to go fishing. Somehow I had forgotten we were supposed to go fishing. He left the coupon there because my wife gave it to him to give to his mom.



    The good news.. they are all going to the movie together next weekend and their houses will be unoccupied, so I have some planning to do.


    What would you do to get even?

      It would seem that the stress that you felt that you were under was clearly unwarranted. I would just go Pheeeeww and be thankful that your life remains as is.

    No Trick or Treating for one season, or bar them from going to a vacuum store in Wooster on that day,....that'll hurt.

        The air conditioning in my parents house in the summer could easily run 400 USD and then in the winter that was the gas bill. But that thing was a monstosity

    Finally, a big part of Montessori philosophy is permitting exploration while setting appropriate limits. With this in mind, it's important for parents to respect their child's abilities and curiosity and allow them to help you around the house. They need a chance to try out what they're learning, to make mistakes, and to try again.

    At the same time that you're allowing your children to test the limits of their world, it's also important to know when to say no. Say no when your child tries to do something inappropriate and then offer a redirect, ideally by presenting a choice between appropriate activities. Saying no doesn't have to be about scolding, but rather is just another way that parents can provide information about the world.
