"That's not a good idea"

This post is by me, Kevin, as I just had to share my morning experience with the kids today. Well, Ashley is not feeling good, so she stayed in bed and I was to get the kids ready as usual but then take them to school, which Ashley usually does. So while getting the kids to eat breakfeast (they are very slow moving) I came up with this idea to hopefully get them moving so I'm not late to work and at the same time try to keep them quite so not to disturb Ash. So it went like this:
ME: "I'm taking you guys to school today."
Kyle: "Why?"
ME: "Because mamma doesn't feel well." (Todd is not behaving at all and Kyle still moving fairly slow) "So why don't you guys eat all your breakfeast quickly and lets get dressed and if you both behave, I'll let you have some of your Easter candy on the way to school!"
Kyle: (Knowing they are not suppose to eat candy in the morning and with a stern face and shaking his head side to side) "Daddy, that's not a good idea."

DARN, foiled by the good teachings of his Mamma!

That's my grandboy. He knows the rules by gosh. Just like the other night coming home in my car. He was not at all OK with buckling up in the front seat for the short trip over. He was afraid I was going to jail. You guys have that kid brainwashed. Sounds like you had a fun morning!

If the other Worst Mamas find out about this, Ashley could lose points! Imagine her struggling back from her sickbed to find out that you've slandered her good Worst Mama image...really, what kind of husband are you?
