So Finn has day camp this week, which means, he’s doing something other then watching Phineas & Ferb or some God awful mermaid show while I work, bless his patience with me. Yesterday was day one which means he has now turned into some sort of evil robot jackass who decides we all hate him. It was equal parts me wanting to yell at him, and laugh at the ridiculousness of his attitude. I chose laughter because he was just not himself and I thought I would share snippets of our awesome conversation over dinner…keeping in mind that for some reason Wren was a perfect angel which means it was bizarro day for all.
Me: So Finn here’s some asparagus, it’s like broccoli, you might like it!
Finn: I HATE IT. I’M GOING TO PUKE IF I EAT IT!
Wren: I LOOOOVE asparagus!
Me: Why don’t you eat some of your chicken then?
Finn: I HATE CHICKEN, I’M JUST GOING TO GIVE MYSELF A TIME OUT! (walks away from table).
Wren: I LOOOOVE chicken!
Me: Hey Finn, want some dip for your celery?
Finn: I WANT PEANUT BUTTER!
Me: No I mean like dressing or something for it to dip in.
Finn: I HATE DRESSING, I WANT PEANUT BUTTER, YOU ALL HATE ME! I’M GOING FOR ANOTHER TIME OUT!
Wren: I LOOOOVE celery and dip!
Me: (switching conversation): So on a scale of 1-10 how was your first day at camp Finn?
Finn: I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!
Me: (explains rating system idea)
Finn: MY DAY WAS 1 MILLION, 14 THOUSAND, 6 HUNDRED MILLION THOUSAND POINTS…UNTIL I GOT HOME AND THEN IT WAS A 5.
Wren: I love you all, can I give you all a hug!
Finn: I’M GOING FOR ANOTHER TIMEOUT!
