How did he talk him into this?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
It's almost midnight and Deacon somehow talked DH into ordering a pizza

He's a VERY picky eater to say the least. And VERY skinny and tall. SO when he's hungry, we let him eat. He lives off peanut butter, pizza and milk.

With all the swimming he's been doing lately he's been eating every time I turn around.
Well, we're out of frozen pizza so he asked Dh "Daddy, Im hungry, can we order a pizza?" He said yes.... Of course when I asked 30 mins ago about ordering one DH said no, it was too late

Can you say daddy's boy?

You didn't ask with the phrase "Oh, Daddy....?" and that look that Deacon has. You know it. I don't even know him and I know that look! lol

Be happy and have pizza! This is good....it's summer vacation and it's a treat. Bedtimes and homework and proper nutrition are important. But when he's 30, he'll remember getting pizza at midnight.

One great memory for me was being woken up by my dad in the middle of the night when I was about 5. He told me to be really quiet so I didn't wake the other kids, and took me out into the yard. We had hot chocolate and watched a lunar eclipse. It was SO COOL, just the two of us, up when everyone else was sleeping. That's the kind of stuff kids remember about their parents, not the boring every day stuff about baths and vegetables and sharing and not calling your brother names.

You're very right!

He's 5 also and is now doing "The Happy Dance" because the pizza just came

When Justice was around 4 1/2 and Deacon was just a baby he was feeling "left out". So I woke him up around midnight and we made Root Beer Floats and ate Doritos until we were about to pop!
He's almost 10 now and still remembers it!

Beautifully said, Leli!

For me, it was Grandpa -- when we stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's big old house on summer vacation, Grandpa and I were always the first ones up, and we'd go down to the kitchen and quietly make ourselves some milk toast for breakfast. Milk toast! And oh, it was a treat to me then, sitting with Grandpa at the kitchen table with the birds singing outside the open windows and Grandma's canary answering from his cage in the corner.

Ahh, childhood.

He'll probably keep remembering it. Sounds like you're making some really good memories for those boys.

How is Justice doing, btw? I know he had some challanges at school this year, but came out on top of them. Good for him, working hard for it. I hope he's enjoying his well-earned summer break to the fullest!

He's doing good. Thanks for asking!

We have the normal brother fights and temper tantrums but nothing out of the ordinary.
For 4 hours a week he has tutoring for his reading and he's doing really good.
He needs that 1-on-1 attention to get him going sometimes



Oh, might I add when the pizza man showed up Deacon was out on the porch with me.
He opened the gate and went zooming down the driveway, did a lap around the pizza man and a couple more around my truck
Revving like a car motor the whole way!
You'd think he's never had pizza delivered before

Kids!! *Giggles over revving like a motor*

I honestly never got to do the "one on one" thing with my parents or grandparents....it stinks not to have the memories....I mean, everything I did there was always a sibling there. This is probably something silly he'll remember forever!

Ah, yes, the joys of brothers. The family I work for now (as a nanny) has 3 boys and one girl. The boys sometimes have trouble remembering things like respecting personal space, no personal attacks/namecalling, how big a role "fair" should play in daily activities and spending one's time being responsible for one's own behaviour rather than trying to police the behaviour of those around us. I suppose your boys never have to reminded of that sort of thing, right?

I'm glad Justice is doing well. I hope his reading continues to improve. Does he have any interests that he reads about for fun?

When you're 5, time beyond a day or so has very little meaning. So, if you haven't had pizza delivered today, it might as well been in Deacon's previous life that he last saw the pizza man. Or so he would probably say...."Mom, we haven't had pizza in FOREVER!!!"

I always try to do something with each of them alone to let them know they are both very special to me in thier own ways.

I do this more for Justice then Deacon. His father and I went through a VERY nasty divorce and in the midst of it Deacon was born.
Sometimes Justice feels left out because Deacon is the youngest and spends more time with me then he does considering he goes to his dads 3 nights a week.
So I always make time at least once a week for Justice... even if it's just running to the store for gas
