This weekend Derek took the boys down to the National Mall. I went to a book signing not far away with Mason and we all met up around 7:30.
K: How did it go?
D: Great. Good. Okay, we had our moments.
K: Oh no.
D: The leagues were out playing all over the mall and the boys couldn't understand why they were not allowed to just jump right in and play.
K: The leagues full of adults.
K: Not a kid in sight?
K: They didn't notice that there were no kids?
D: Uh, nope.
K: And they still wanted to play.
D: No, they thought they were entitled to play.
K: Oh no. So our discussion on the importance of including everyone and taking turns backfired.
D: Uh, yep.
K: What did you tell them?
D: That it was a game for adults.
K: That didn't go over well, did it?
D: No, it did not. It's not really a game just for adults. Ethan reminded me of that.
Kid has a memory like an elephant. You can't get anything over on him.
On a lighter note, apparently Mason had no problem about being excluded from the game.
