Mr. Discipline (The Hubby)

30 Jul

I was talking to Trinity’s mom on the phone last night when I hear him begging her to let him talk to me.

Soon Trinity is on the phone informing me that Bambino threw one of their Thomas engines at him. Not only was Trinity indignant- he demanded retribution.

“Dad, we need to give Bambino a time-out”, he said. I told Trinity, “Ok, have mommy give him a time-out and tell him not to do that again. We’ll give him a 5 minute time-out”.

Trinity didn’t think that 5 minutes was even close to being an acceptable punishment. He casually suggested that Bambino in fact deserved a 22 minute time-out. Man, this kid is tough.

I preceded to to discuss this rather lengthy sentence with Trinity. He was made aware of the fact that he isn’t a perfect angel himself, and 22 minutes is pretty hard core.

Trinity thought about my point for a second, and then proceeded to ask if we should perhaps ground Bambino. Yeah, big brother has been on lock down before, so he can attest to the “joys” of this punishment. It took quite a bit of resolve to not laugh out loud.

Again, Trinity and I discussed the realities of being grounded and as to whether or not this would be fair. I think at some point during this conversation, he must have imagined himself in the hot seat because he ultimately agreed that 5 minutes of time-out would be just fine.

Not going to make an assumption, but I think Bambino got a break last night.

Carls-what? (The Hubby)

29 Jul
I was talking to Trinity on the phone last night getting our plans all line up.  I’m finally heading home from Delaware in a week.
 
Of course we have to go bowling and play minature golf, but we’re also planning a trip to San Diego to visit the USS Midway.  Trinity is excited about that possibility, but he also reminded me that Legoland is down that way as well (he visited there not too long ago).
 
We were discussing our plans and says, “Dad, can we go to Legoland?”  Me:  “Next time son, you just went there.  We’re gonna see the Midway”.  Trinity:  “I know dad, but Legoland is in Carlsgood.  Thats on the way”.
 
I nearly hit the floor laughing.  Of course he is refering to Carlsbad, and yes, it is on the way to San Diego. He’s paying attention to geography and his surroundings.  Man, they grow up quick

Super Baby

22 Jul

Trinity is at the age where he is fascinated by people kissing, eventhough he says that it’s weird, but I know he’s intrigued by it. 

While perusing through my stack of wedding magazine, he asked me:

T: Did your mom and dad kissed when they got married?

Me: Yes

T: Grandma told me she didn’t, how come she said she didn’t kissed grandpa?

Me: I don’t know

T: Were you at their wedding?

Me: No, I wasn’t even born yet at that time

T: How come you weren’t at their wedding?

Me: Were you at our wedding? 

T: Yes

Me: No, you weren’t

T: Yes, I was a super baby, and I just got a telescope and I can see you guys at your wedding, and you guys just kissed each other and kissed and kissed for a really long time…

Me: ….(walk away) — no point in arguing with a 5 years old who knows everything.

Bragging or Not…

14 Jul

Trinity has a tutor that comes in twice a week.  Her name is Alice, she is the future sister-in-law of one of my best friend Rosalie.  And today I happened to be there on one of his session.

He has trouble focusing when it comes to studying, and he would do a math problem then talk, do another problem then talk again…this would go on for a while.  Finally I decided to challenge him.  If you remember my previous post, you’ll know how competitive he can get. 

So this time around he decided to take up my challenge, and he did 10 subtraction problems in 2 minutes.  (Of course i was done WAY before he did)  But I told him he finished first.  He raised his hands and said ‘Yay!! I won!!!’  Mom, did you finish after me?  I said yes.  And he said ‘Yeah, I am faster than you, I won!!’

Then he looked at me with all seriousness, and said ‘It’s a good thing I wasn’t bragging Mom’.

Alice and I looked at each other and just burst out laughing…Kids, I tell you…
