Conversation #15: Man of the house

Hubby left for a "business trip" and before he left, he told my son that he is now "the man of the house" and that he should take care of me and his sister.

When his grandma called last saturday, he told his grandma that he is the man of the house now! He really liked the idea of being called "the man of the house". He feels like a grown up!

Yesterday, my kids are taking turns playing with the computer... when its his sister's turn to play, he would always ask for an extension... now, its almost his turn to play...

PATRICK: "That's not fair. You said 20 minutes not 30 minutes. It's my turn now."
ME: "Learn to be patient, your sister still have 2 minutes left with the computer."

But he couldn't wait... and he keeps on bugging his sister. So I decided to cut off his playtime and send them to bed.

Patrick climbing up the stairs to his bedroom, angrily said:

PATRICK: "I am going to run away."
ME: "Go ahead."
PATRICK: "If I ran away, there's no man in the house anymore."

Hi Jo,
Nakakatuwa naman si Patrick. He likes being the man of the house(smile).

Belated happy birthday nga pala kay Patricia.

Junnie said...

tell Patrick, a real man will always respect any girl, Patricia and woman, Mom...

am sure he's again testing your patience...:)

besides, he really is the man of the house and he's trying to see where his limits are...

JO said...

Thanks Agring.

Hi Junnie,
He is so used to getting what he wants, that's why he had the tantrum. But at least now he knows that being the man of the house doesn't mean he is above me. Ako pa din siyempre ang masusunod. ",)
