Final Score

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on September 22, 2009

Noah – 3
Mommy – 0

The game lasted only 15 minutes, but after a long day it left Mommy exhausted.

Noah took the lead in the first 5 seconds, by stealing Mommy’s patience by picking all of the keys off her brand new computer, leaving one of them completely missing.

Mommy couldn’t quite recover…

Only minutes later, Noah scored his second point by overflowing the bathtub, when he turned the water on and joined Mommy as she was organizing the game closet.

Noah then won the game when he dumped the bag of 100 straws on the floor in the pantry. A simple move, and one that would normally not score a point, but Mommy was tired.

Mommy’s not a poor sport, but was left in tears after today’s game.

If it makes you feel any better, I have a daughter that does the same. She caught me playing the Wii with her brother and unwrapped 3 boxes of tea bags, among other things. Needless to say I lost that day too.

WOW. That game would have made me have a mantal breakdown. Glad you are a better sport then me.

Happy WW!

Sorry you had such a rough day, Chris! Here’s hoping mommy scores the big points today! Incidentally, I can’t believe how much that little guy looks like Ray!

Wow, this made me relive my final score day with my son when he was 2 years old. I woke up and heard the dryer on… my son came out of the bathroom smiling. He pointed to the dry… I opened it to find his pooped in undies drying with a load of my brand new cloths. Nothing like scraping dried poop out of the dryer with a butter knife.

Oh, those days are no fun at all — been there, done that. Hope it gets better!
