Well I lied to her!

Last night ...
Me: Mason, you can't play anymore video games until you can count to 100.
Mason (with much annoyance in his voice): Ohh-kay.

This morning ...
Mason: Mommy! I learned how to count to 100 last night!
Me (with much exaggeration in my voice): You did?! That is great!
Mason: So now can I play video games?
Me: *sigh*

This afternoon, after practicing his counting ...
Me: Okay, now start from one.
Mason: Mommy, I can't count to 100!
Kyle: You told Mommy this morning that you could.
Mason: Well I lied to her! I couldn't take it anymore! I wanted to play video games!


  1. Too funny!! I love the line "I couldn't take it anymore"! The pull of video games is so strong!

  2. Hahaha he sounds gorgouse.
    We just brought a Wii and introduced our 5years old to video games, Why did we do that? He is obsessed, it takes over his brain. Last night he wanted a book programmed into his Leap frog pen, that was until he remembered the Wii.
    For now we are limiting to after school. Then after next school holiday’s it will only be a holiday toy.
    I love it and will pull out the Wii fit after he is at school. All the best with Mason and counting to 100.

  3. Bethany,

    I have enjoyed reading your blog tonight (found it on Lynette's blog, but it's also listed on my friend Heather's blog). I have extended many personal invitations, but would like to extend a VERY special invitation to you. I will be having a guest author each Tuesday in August for "Bee My Guest". I think that this Tuesday's guest author (Heather Fath Messick) may be of specific interest to you. I'll let you read about the details here

    Also, I'm giving away some of Heather's music and some music from our Church as well.

    If there are any others that you would like to spread this invitation to that are parents of some precious Down's children...I would LOVE for them to know about this as well. There is a button on my blog for the event if you need that also. I hope you can make it....your children have touched my heart, much like Heather's little Victoria. I am adding your button to my blog right now. So glad I read your blog tonight!

    Many Blessings,

  4. My son would TOTALLY do the same thing. Hilarious!

  5. That is so funny...and so something my Luke would have done. I love Mason's personality!! :)

  6. Okay.....Oh my gosh, that right there is too funny!!!! I love reading your posts about Mason, he cracks me up!! Can't wait to tell Jeff this one, he will love it!
