Can you ever have too many parents?



If I asked Nick that question right now- I would get a resounding YES!!
The reason for that is because a really amazing thing happened the last 2 days. He unexpectedly got 2 extra parents!

You see- Arianna and Halle decided to step up and take this role upon themselves.

Nick came home from work yesterday and came flying upstairs to ask me where his WII was. I didn't know, but told him to look around, I was quite positive it didn't get up and walk away.
Finally after much looking it was discovered that Arianna and Halle decided that he spent too much time playing WII and not enough time playing with them, so they packed it up and hid it!!!!

Nick did not find this amusing, I kind of did, but they had to apologize and life went on.
Until this morning......

I was woken up with an outraged Nick, flying in my room telling me that
"Something has got to be done about this!!!"

When I woke up enough to regain my wits it was explained to me that apparently they did not stop with the WII. They hid his game cube, went through his drawers and hid anything they felt would distract him from playing with them!

Well now they went way too far and they were disciplined and it was explained that they would not appreciate it at all if Nick went through their stuff and hid it!
I do realize it started out as kind of a joke, but this joke went way too far and they had to make amends.

Nick has forgiven them and all is well again. I do believe we are back to having just 2 parents in this house!

Sorry, but I found this to be totally hilarious. We only have makeup issues or clothing issues. No one ever wishes they could spend more time with the other person...well, except for me and and Dave, hehe. Oh, the life of kids.

This was soooo funny! Isn't he the boy who laid down in the snow for them to sled over? He was providing too much fun for them and they didn't want it to stop. Too cute!

Melissa said...

That is just hilarious! I can totally see the girls doing that to him and I can just picture Nick's reaction. It's great that the girls want to spend more time with him though! :)

Mari said...

This is so funny. I can just see the girls as they worked on this, and I can see Nicks face as he looked for things! Sisters - tell him I had 2 of them to deal with too, so I feel his pain!

Bonnie said...

Oh my goodness. That is soooo funny! My Alia tends to be a bit of a 3rd parent too but she's never gone this far ! Give her time though ...

A Stone Gatherer said...

Yeah, like Mari I can see them too! I have to admit I got quite a chuckle! It is sweet though that they want their big brothers attention!

Laura said...

I can picture all this happening too! Poor Nick... Usually in our family it was the oldest trying to be the mother - not the youngest - and yes, I will admit to that.

Terri said...

I think it's hilarious too. If only they could make him work a little - all would be well!

Terri,
That is where the problem started. They feel that ever since he's been working more hours there has been NO time committed to them. How rude of him to actually want some time to himself-They don't seem to understand that he's 15 and not 10 anymore!

Sandra said...

LOL that is so funny.

Dena said...

Hahahahah- Apparently someones are NOT getting enough love and attention from their brother!

Maybe they should play the wii with him or maybe he should get a safe!

I have a good life said...

Very funny and very cute! Sometimes my kids probably want to hide my computer from me! :)

That's pretty funny! And creative too, a bittersweet offense I guess.

Cheri, How did you not just laugh and laugh? I suppose that wouldn't have helped Nick's mood at all. I bet the girls got a big chuckle out of that one.Poor Nick.See-ya,Patty
