the great remote search

Monday, August 20, 2007

My kids are hysterical!

Especially when they've lost something they've deemed vital to their existence.
Like the remote.
Q-ball could not find the DVD remote tonight.
He looked high.
He looked low.
He looked in couch cushions.
He looked under the coffee table.
He looked behind the TV.
He looked behind the couch.
He looked everywhere.
And every so often, he would stop long enough to ask me...'Mom, have you seen the remote?'
'No, honey. I haven't. Don't worry about it. We'll find it later. Why don't you just watch some cartoons?'
'Noooo Moooom! Don't you remember? Never. Give. Up. I can't give up now...I have to fiiiiind iiiiit!'
Why is it that he suddenly remembers something we've taught him when it's useful for him?! Why couldn't he remember the same lesson yesterday when we were working on his homework?! :)
The longer the search went on, the more desperate Q-ball became.
He roped his brother and sister into his mission by promising they could watch the Veggietale of their choice. (Of course, he would renege later.)
In desperation the three of them tore the living room apart. They took cushions off of the couch, picked up blankets and tossed pillows.
Each minute that ticked by, they got more desperate...they knew it was getting closer to the witching hour - 8 o'clock - when they'd have to go to bed.
Time was running out.
I just sat back and watched the drama that was unfolding.
Finally...success.
Q-ball found the treasured remote stuffed in between a cushion and back of the couch. Right in a place he had looked three times before! :)
You would have thought they had won the Super B*wl!
Kids were jumping around, giving each other high-fives and doing chest bumps...
All over a little remote...
That they really didn't need, to watch the movie anyway! :) (See morning with my little man post)

That's hilarious! We've been through this before several times too :)

Too funny - I can't wait to see out little man and Troy have a contest for the remote - He who finds it, picks the show. Ahhh.. now that might be some good entertainment at our house!! Sounds like you have a houseful!!
