SOMETIMES YOU JUST CAN’T WIN

LEA: “OH, NO!” (Smoke comes from the oven where she’d forgot about the bread in the broiler.)

ME: “I thought I smelled something when I came through the kitchen a moment ago.”

LEA: “It would have helped if you would have said something.”

ME: “Sorry. I didn’t even think about it.”

LEA: “Everyone wash up. We’ll just eat without bread tonight.”

(At this point I walk into the bathroom where Cooper (my 7 year old) is washing his hands, and looking really aggravated.)

ME: “Coop, why the long face buddy?”

COOPER: “…BECAUSE WE’RE NOT HAVING ANY BREAD TONIGHT!”

ME: (never knowing until now that he liked bread so much): “Cooper, shh, don’t say that so loud, you don’t want to hurt Mom’s feelings. She didn’t mean to burn the bread.”

COOPER: “I don’t know why it would hurt mom’s feelings … it’s YOUR fault the bread got burnt!”

WHAT? Sometimes a dad just can’t win! :)

    Yes, I have moments and dinners like that at least once a week. Bless. Bread’s a pretty big deal at my house, too! :-)

    A woman’s reasoning … one of life’s grand mysteries. Of course, a man’s reasoning does the same for the ladies. Makes life interesting. In our family if anything … no, make that ANYTHING … is not where it should be, I always get the blame. I may not even know we own it, but if Janice can’t find it, I must have been the last to touch it.

    LOVE THIS!!! Alani is all about who’s fault it is these days. If you didn’t read our dr. drama post. . . . after she recently got shots, hours after, she was telling her daddy that her leg hurt and he said “oh, i’m sorry alani” and she told he daddy. . . “it’s okay daddy, it’s not your fault, it’s mommy’s fault.” (because i was the one who took her to the dr and held her down while they SHOT her). . . . kids, they just tell it like it is!!!!!

    Mothers get blamed for so many things for no reason. You always loved her/him better than me. It’s always been your fault because Dad is partial to you and now our stepmother took our biological mom away. And that was just 40 plus years ago. Of course she was good to us and worked, sewed, cooked, taught us to work and pretented she loved us. Was on our side in most things and help get us married wheater she thought it was wise or not. Took up for us when Dad was wrong. Such a place Mom’s are in some times. The children were very happy as younger children. We had lots of fun times. gmj

    There is one more for the book of “Cooper-isms”. Which by the way I am still waiting on you to publish! Don’t you just love the honesty of children?

    Trey,
    Twilight zone…This is too weird…I just burnt some cheese toast up in the broiler last night, too…but, I took my burnt bread (ham.bun)and had some fun with it…I made a Krabby Patty out of it and gave it to my favorite doc…Dr. Darter…left it in his chair at work…you’ll have to ask him about it. Lea, I sympathize with you…everytime I put bread in the broiler I get distracted and forget about it!

    Hey Sir Trey. You got a nice and interesting Life of fulfillment with God. Though life with family complicates things, I think they’re part of it.

    Aw I find that really cute!

  15. mmlace says:

    That’s funny! I LOVE all your ‘Cooper’ stories! They’re always funny!

  16. Tucker says:

    As a wheat farmer, we thank you! In fact, you should have bread, preferably unburnt at every meal. Again, thank you for your support
