Within the walls of my house, while around his older and younger sister, my son can be a nightmare. He pisses off one of them then alternates to picking on the other all day, every day. He also manages to find the time to be disruptive and argumentative. Vonni also behaves this way when we go out as a family. Jaime says that Vonni and I need to get out of the house together so we can talk. Getting him out of the house is like pulling teeth. Whenever it’s him and I we never have a problem. I’m sure his anger management issues are a little to blame in the house.
Then there are weeks like these. Vonni has been awake all week when it’s been time to drive his grandmother to work and has chosen to ride with me. Every trip has been filled with his excessively long monologues that he finds hilarious. There funny but not to where you want them repeated for 30 straight minutes. the only person who can make me laugh more than Vonni is Jaime.
Today was a little different, I hadn’t slept at all before driving my mom to work so I was in need sleep mode. When I need sleep I talk way to much about nonsensical things and my mind wanders constantly. What started as a simple conversation about the puppy’s accomplishment quickly became very exasperating.
I was telling Vonni how for the first time Beauty scratched at my door to be let outside. He couldn’t understand what that meant or what door she could have possibly been scratching at. It took 10 minutes of breaking down each sentence before he finally got it. My mom found that hilarious because I often refuse to talk to her after having said something and then explaining it once. That was on the way there.
On the way home, red eyed and exhausted, we stopped at Jack in the Box for breakfast. Our very small order had us waiting at the window almost 15 minutes for our food. That became his perfect opportunity. He told one-liners while I laughed and laughed. Yes, I did see the looks all the other drivers behind us were giving our car. I don’t now nor did I care then.
Once I start giggling there’s no stopping me. Vonni knows this and kept going all the way home. It was a wonderful morning. Days like this more than make up for the less desirable ones.
