Nice Tactic.

The boys have been in bed for over an hour now. "In bed" is a loose term, since Tucker is very much awake, entertaining himself in every way he can think of with very few options.

As I was sitting in my chair, writing and blogging, I heard, "Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no-no-no. Oh, no. Mommy? Mommy?? Oh, no. Oh, no."

There are many things I can choose to ignore, but given the history I have with this little boy, I have learned that these are words that require a response.

I came to his room, and he said, "Oh, no, Mommy. Hoppis."

"Hoppis?" What are hoppis? Anyone??

Just then, he hiccupped. "Oh, no. Hoppis."

"Hoppis? Hiccups? Do you have hiccups?"

"Yes. Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no."

Not that big of a deal, kiddo. Nice try.

Good night.
