Brotherly Love

The other day while waiting in the doctor’s office for what might have been his second xray in a week, the boy was BORED. After sighing for about the hundredth time, he looked at the clock.

He then proceeded to rhythmically kick at the heels of his little sister, who was sitting very patiently next to him, happily people-watching in the busy waiting room. Of course, she wasn’t quiet for long, reacting in her usual manner. A whiny shriek is putting it mildly.

Quite irritated by this time, I said to him:

“L-ster. What are you doing?”

And he replied, “Mom, it’s that time of day. It’s in the schedule!”

Now you know how I am with schedules.

Puzzled, I asked, “What schedule?”

Rolling his eyes and laughing, he answered, “Come on, Mom. It’s the usual time when I’m supposed to annoy my sister.”

This kid. He’s good.

Oh - he's so my next protègè. I used to make fun of my little sister with my cut-up humor and my sister would whine to mom, and I would say, "What? I'm just training you for the real world. I'm doing you the favor, you should thank me!"

I think I was 9 years old.

Oh my, you are going to have your hands full with that one!

But he's funny! As long as you can see the humour ;-)

How considerate of him to keep to the schedule even though he had to go to the doctor. :P

Gosh, too funny! I agree with Kami, a hand full, but a good one!

Good instinct! I used to be on a strict schedule bug my sister schedule as well. I went by the position of the sun. If the position was "up" it was time to annoy her.

Ooh. I am so stealing that line. Though inserting the words crabby or having a drink.
