interesting

First thanks for letting me know the font was too dark, I hope I fixed it and it will be easier for you to read. Yesterday our internet was down and I wasn't able to get on here and update, which is funny because I actually had things I wanted to blog about! The first one was that I went into the doctor and they can't get me a referral for the chiropractor I want to see, but they possibly could get me one for someone else, not too fond of that idea. The next thing is the reason for the title...

Yesterday my step mom came over to watch the kids so I could go to the doctor without all four of them. Though I didn't have an appointment when she came over because I had to call that morning and I was fortunate to get in at 11:30 well that was about 2 hours away and since I didn't sleep very good the night before because of stomach issues, that are getting more frequent and more annoying, she let me sleep for those 2 hours and I was out cold. Anyways, when I got back from my appointment my dad was pulling into our driveway. I asked what he was doing here, I thought he was working. He said he came to take us out to lunch. The kids and I went out to lunch with him down the street from our house and across the street is an ice cream shop. Well my dad wanted to take them there after we ate. We walked in and the ice cream section said closed, then two more groups of people walked in after us a single women and a man with a boy about the age of 10. Since we were the biggest party they waited on the others first. While the kids were waiting to get their ice cream my dad was goofying around with them by blowing the straw wrappers at them. Well Red went to hit my dad on the but and missed and hit the kid's butt. What happened next will probably be itched in my mind forever...

The kid turned and looked at my dad, I was sitting at one of the tables across the room watching it all transpire, and says, "Your son just hit me." My dad tell the boy, "He's not my son." Then Red walks away and towards me. Meanwhile the man that was with the boy asks him, "Did you get injured?" The boy said, "No" then took his ice cream and walked outside crying. When Red got to me I told him he needed say he was sorry because he made that boy cry and if he didn't he would not be getting any ice cream. Red asked if I could walk with him, so I did. We got to the boy who you would have thought just broke his arm the way he was carrying on crying. Red said he was sorry two times to the boy and he just turned and walked away. I was annoyed at this point and I said to the boy, "You could at least acknowledge his apology." I seriously feel bad for this boy he obviously is going to have major problems down the road, first Red didn't hit him that hard to make him ball his eyes out and secondly he had no respect to acknowledge Red's apology. My dad kept saying what a wimp, he so doesn't help situations like this. I had a long talk with Red about spanking in play which my dad does with them ALL the time. He didn't mean to hurt the kid he wasn't even aiming for him. It was just an all around interesting experience.

Oh yeah and the boys camped in the living room last night. J put our smaller tent up and that is where the boys slept so fun and cute!!! What a great daddy.

So about Red hitting another child... on the news page on Comcast today there was a headline, "Man accused of slapping another person's child in store..." Ironic, hmmm?

As far as your dad's comments not making it better, it sounds like the kid was a wimp and the parents needed some toughening, too, "Honey, it was an accident, you can be done now. Accept the little boy's apology."
