Dramantics

To be honest, as the mom of two little boys, I really didn't think I'd have to deal with any dramatic antics. Dramatics if you will. Yes, I think I just invented a fabulous word so go with it.

Newsflash: Kids are dramatic.

Occasionally it's annoying, but most of the time it's hysterical.


Here's what I'm currently dealing with:

1. If Henry sneezes and I don't say, BLESS YOU! right away, he continues to fake sneeze until I do.

2. This is the scene if Henry runs into Mark or I, or if we accidentally bump him:

Whoa, whoa, whoa! (Sends himself flying to the floor.)

I barely touched you, I'll tell him.

Ouch. Mommy hurt Hank, he'll whisper... with big, sad eyes. This will eventually turn into an awkward and embarrassing situation out in public, I'm sure of it.

3. One day last week, Mark's back was bothering him. He literally told Henry ONCE that he couldn't pick him up because his "back hurts." Well that quickly became Henry's favorite reason to avoid anything he doesn't want to do. A very good reminder that we must severely watch what we say.

Could you help Mommy and let the dogs in?
Back hurts, Mom.

Can you show me how you can count?
Back hurts, Mom.

Can you help me pick up these puzzle pieces that you just threw while madly running around the room?
Back hurts, Mom.

Time for nap!
NO! Back hurts, Mom!

Oh, the dramantics, I tell ya. And I can't be the only one, can I? Let's hear it: What are your children's current dramantics?
