Little G and I walked out on the screened in porch the other day so that he could blow some bubbles. I was helping him get started when I heard some voices from the backyard behind ours.
I quickly picked up on the fact that the people were arguing and that it was a couple.
It may have had something to do with the fact that SHE told HIM that he was good for nothing and that she takes care of the family and cooks the meals and… He said something but I couldn’t hear him as well – he may have still been in the house. But I could hear her loud and clear and when he was done she continued to yell about his worthlessness.
And THAT was the point when my toddler felt the need to interject and yelled,
“I CAN HEAR YOU!” I froze.
He went about his bubble blowing for a moment and in the next breath said,
“GO IN YOUR HOUSE!!”
Although I was silently laughing my arse off I was simultaneously ticked that I didn’t get to hear anymore of their juicy argument.
My “marriage ref” toddler killed it for me as there was NO MORE SOUND from their backyard. Hmmmmm, wonder why…
Oh well, maybe he lightened their hearts a little and their fight really did end.
But man. It was JUST getting good.
