It's Time To Go Home

Yesterday we came home from Seattle. Everybody over the age of five was ready to sleep in their own beds. Five and under? Not so much.

The last thing he said was "I don't want to go to school." You'll notice that his anguish didn't keep him from eating the brownie we'd given him to stop crying.

  1. Wow. That's kind of how I'm feeling this morning!

    FIRST! Whoa. How did that happen.

  2. Awwww. Look at that face!
    Saying goodbye is always the hardest part. But chocolate sure does help.

  3. Is it wrong that I'm laughing at his brownie-guzzling tears?

    My son was wailing about putting on his PJs last night and--in case the cries weren't enough--he started proclaming, "I'M CRYING, MOMMY! I'M CRYING!" I laughed. :)

  4. He has his priorities straight. For now, anyway. Just wait until he discovers masturbation.

  5. You need to be honest and tell everyone that the brownie was actually a hash cookie....

  7. Poor child. Our kids can cry and eat at the same time too. I like how your wife shields her face - I move I can relate to.

  8. Salty tears just make chocolate that much sweeter.

  9. That poor kid has parents who point and laugh when he cries. Wait, I do that too.

  11. I love the hushed whisper at the end. *stop laughing* ... priceless!

    Your kids are soooo cute, even when they're crying and irrational.

  12. I love you saying "stop laughing" at the end through your laughter.

  13. LOL! I am with him though...I love Seattle as well! I was there just last year, visiting a friend, and my goodness was it lovely. Sadly, said friend no longer lives there...

  14. Ahh yes. Went thu the same think last week after a trip to Disney World. Your little dude seems pretty easy to bribe at least

  16. If I start crying right now will you send me a brownie?

  17. If that brownie came from Seattle, I'm concerned what might be baked in it.

  18. I laugh at my kids all the time. No shame there! I guess it's interesting that his concern was just for school, not leaving the states. I don't know how that makes me feel as an American. Even kids want to leave?? Oh wait! I want to leave too!!!

  19. I can so relate to this!
    Especially the bribery with sweet things.

  20. I love that he just keeps on eatin' that brownie, even through the tears. Must have been a great trip.

  21. I need a good cry about my weekend ending. And a brownie, I need a brownie.

  22. This put a smile on my face. And was that almost a shot of the fearless Matriach? :)

  23. The poor kid,you won't even pick
    up stakes and move to Seattle for
    the poor little guy. I mean, there
    is so little in the way of aviation
    around you. So you're minutes away from an International Airport!

    Brownies, do in fact make things better, especially if they are gooey sweet and have cut up carmel
    roles in them.

  24. you are cruel, filming your poor child while he cries

  25. I can't believe the Supreme Leader didn't wack you one for taking that picture.

    Nothing short of cutting off my O2 supply would stop me from eating that brownie. Even then, I'm sure I could manage a few bites.

  26. Oh, sooo sad. How ever did he survive? Glad you guys had a good trip. Did you ever find yourself some hockey?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey! How'd you get in here anyway?!?

  28. Of course it shouldn't have stopped him. I always eat a brownie, even if I'm really sad and can't find a bit of Lego.

  29. Consider moving to Texas where the Swine Flu has cancelled school (in my city) until May 11.

  30. There is no reason to ever turn down a brownie. Crying be damned.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I feel the same way about Seattle. GIVE ME A BROWNIE.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wish I lived there too. Can I have a brownie?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I looked like that this morning when I realized I had to go back to work. And I didn't get a brownie. Dang it. Not sure it would have helped anyhow.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hey! I didn't get no damn brownies! My parents SUCKED!

    So let me get this straight, in Canada you get rewarded when you cry??

    PS how the hell did you get in? I thought I put you on the watchlist!? - I totally thought that would be funny. I'm sure homeland security would give you a brownie.

  35. Sign him up for the board of tourism here. I hope that means you all had a great time.

  36. Ach. Tragic. The end of a vacation is a sad, sad thing. (But, sshhhhh, the look on his face is absolutely adorable)

  37. Was Supreme Leader eyeing up his brownie? "Oooh, it's got marshmallows!". She was laughing at his tears AND coveting his brownie?

    That's AWESOME.
