These are all true events, but not just with my boys, but brothers and cousins too.
The Un-argument Definition: Making a point about something only to realize that although it was worth mentioning, you didn't notice all the progress being made in the area mentioned. In other words Hubby was two steps ahead of me. The lesson learned: Mention it sooner, I would have had a better attitude and he would have had an easier time knowing what exactly I wanted. Sounds like Newlywed 101 when you put it in basic terms, maybe the principles are the same, but just different subjects as you are married longer ;0) Just had to post, because my guy is a trooper. Just giving you props babe.
Hmmm "props" maybe one of those phrases that I use that makes my 22 year old brother burst into laughter. Like when I say "holla" or "yo what up dog" while sounding like a mom. My poor kids! I have the knack for making catch phrases sound so uncool. They are doomed. The worst part, I am so going to enjoy using them in front of their friends;0)
There's a rabbit trail for ya!
