Story From The Home Front

We had a play date at our house today and I decided to pop in a video as the play date was coming to an end and the kiddos were getting antsy. (Yes, I said video. We have a VCR and a bunch of VHS tapes for our kiddos. It’s just cheaper.) When I put a tape in, however, it wouldn’t go all the way in and kept ejecting itself.

“Hmmm” I thought.  “Buddy? Is there something in here?”

Alex promptly cocked his head to the right and said, “Ummmm. Nope, Mommy.”

“Are you sure?”

“Oh, yes.”

Befuddled, I decided to put in a DVD and figure out the VCR mess later when there weren’t 3 toddlers waiting for a show. At that time, I tried 3 different tapes to make sure it was, indeed, the VCR that was the issue. Again, I asked Alex, “Did you put something in here, buddy?”

“Ummmm. Mommy? (followed by a long pause)  No, I didn’t.”

“OK,” I shrugged.

Upon further investigation, however, I found a white, plastic ring that USED to hang on Eliana’s gym lying on the bottom of the VCR.  When I pulled it out, I said, “It looks like you DID put something in the VCR, Alex.”

“Oh, yes! I did, mommy! I put that in there myself.”

*rolling eyes*  Boys, boys, boys. Why are they always so busy and destructive? LOL
