My husband was tested to his limit this weekend.
For three days, The Tackler cranked his super power up to max: his ability to not listen.
It drives CG crazy.
I’m not exactly a fan either, but I am better versed in how many children display such ability.
It tested Mommy Zen on Friday.
Then my husband let me sleep in on Saturday as he took the kids to a playground. I woke up rejuvenated and energetic.
I began Operation Organize House. This meant CG spent more solo time with the children… and by default, The Tackler’s super power.
Many time outs were had.
The Tackler spent much time in second floor exile.
I know it all too well.
It was my Friday.
But because I was seeking Mommy Zen, I tried to roll with it. This meant grabbing the camera to photograph irony.
90% of my son’s time outs are a result of his actions with his sister. Common offenses are snatching, hitting, pushing, or just being mean.
He sits in The Time Out Spot each time.
And half of the time, Lil Diva will do what she’s done since she became mobile: she will join him.
Some of the sweetest, most adorable shots of sibling “love” are taken while The Tackler is in time out for doing something to the same sister he appears to lavish affection upon.
The irony is not lost on me.
I hope his superpower fades a bit over the next few days.
But I’ll have the camera ready, just in case.
What is your favorite ironic photograph? Please share in the comments.
