We've had a rough couple of days. I am trying to see the humor in Zacks deeds, maybe if I talk about it, it will become more funny. Here are some things Zack has done lately that make me shake my head and wonder....
Thursday night: sneaks out of church building with his friend, attempts to climb on a scooter parked in the lot, tips scooter over, spilling gasoline all over his body. Casually strolls back into church and pretends nothing happened. (I only found out because while driving home I querried "why does it smell like gas in here?".)
Friday night: attends Steve's work softball game. Half way through game, runs to adjacent field, stands behind a very slender orange pole, pulls down pants and procedes to urinate. I pretend not to see, so as not to call attention to him. Then a mother stands up, points and says "hey! is that kid peeing!?" Everyone looks and laughs. I hang my head in shame. Luckily no one noticed that he was not "JUST" peeing.
Monday morning: wakes up, asks for shredded wheat cereal which I know he will not eat. Insists on having it and wants MORE milk too. I argue, he wins. Later, I tell him to brush his teeth, lets go. He agrees, stating he has just eaten a whole bag of gummy bears. In the kitchen, shredded wheat is still in bowl and 10x it's normal size, gummy bear bag in shreds and empty. He happily paid me $2.00 for wasting food.
