Well it is already tomorrow, the Seahawks lost and I had to work and didn’t make a whole lot of extra money. It wasn’t a horrible time, The Hubs was there and some of our friends who we used to go to games with were there too. Not that I had a whole lot of time to enjoy them!
When we got home my mom who was w
ith the kids said, “Well, we had an incident.” There was a long pause as she was obviously not super comfortable with what she was about to say. “Well, the Boy was in his room and got a candle lighter and he somehow started it and dropped it while lit on a piece of paper and had a little fire in his room.” Now, here are a whole lot of holes in this story. But let’s start with my reaction, How the hell does he not know to NOT play with a candle lighter in his room alone?! WTF?! What was he thinking? I am sure he was curious but really, WTF?! Doesn’t he realize as much as he wants to know “what happens if ___________” that, THAT is what causes dangerous situations and bad accidents? ….obviously not!!!!
Well, I obviously have some teaching to do because he could have burned the house down or hurt himself. Oh yeah, he put the fire our with his foot! No burns on it though! At least he thought to put it out unlike me when I was 15 and burned my entire house down!
I am really fucking up with my kids some how obviously! I really am trying not to fuck them up but I just know I am. I need to be a better role model or something! When the Hubs and I argue that is what he says they see me and my ADD-ness forgetting things and making stupid decisions and they get it all from me! Well, I am trying to make good decisions and teach them responsibility and hopefully they get The Hub’s decision making and attention to detail almost OCD-ness when it comes to thinking things through and being prepared…it is looking like the Boy may be a little bit more like me in this arena!
Well, at least he survived, no one got hurt and my house didn’t burn down! There is a spot on his carpet that is “stained” with fire damage about 6 inches in diameter maybe it will serve as a reminder to think things through and not get into stuff your not supposed to get into!
I am going to bed now! Forgot to post earlier and had a busy day of watching the early games, cooking for the family before I had to go to work (homemade Buffalo Ranch chicken wings, yum) and working at the Bar for the game…wish the Hawks could’ve pulled out the win!!!! Good night folks!
