Press Pause

I had this argument with Casey J yesterday afternoon. He was in the TV room watching a movie and he bellowed “Mommy pause the movie.” “Why?” With more urgency “Pause it!” “Why?” “I hafta pee!” “Just go pee quickly (note – this is a terrible thing to say to a little boy who already has aiming issues) and get back to the movie.” “No! Mommy, pause it.” And so on back and forth until I decided if I didn’t get up to pause it this stubborn little boy (who totally gets it from his daddy) might actually have an accident on the couch before missing a moment of his movie. He so won AND he still managed to not hit the intended target zone. I cannot win. Ever. That is why I am outnumbered. What movie was so important you ask? Why it was Alvin and the Chipmunks “Daytona Jones” (play on Indiana Jones with three high voiced and slightly annoying chipmunks). Is it silly to explain to my boys that there isn’t much that is more important than going to the bathroom when you have to go and not when it’s convenient???
