So, as is typical of the Berserker Clan, the weekend was spent all together. Since both of the grownups are so busy with work during the week, we try to spend every possible minute together as a family on the weekends. We all go to the grocery store, we all go to Target, all go to Home Depot. It is sort of a production, but it is what we are about. Yes, I know, I could get it done in about 1/10th of the time alone. But I miss my kids.
So, Sunday, Beautiful Wife and I brought the kids out to soccer practice. We both play so we thought why not bring the kids. We are trying to start a new adult club here, so we both really wanted to be there. Well, one of the wives of the players volunteered to watch the kids as we all practiced... SAWEET! An hour in or so, she asked to take them to the bathroom in the church next door. We said sure, and THANK YOU SO MUCH!
So, a while later, we are wrapping up practice and we realize they are not back yet. I brush it off - they probably found something fun to do in the church. I see them all holding hands walking back through the parking lot 10 minutes or so later. Well it turns out that Little Berserker Spawn had to go poop, not just pee. So, this person who I have met a total of 2 times was kind enough to wipe my 4 year old's butt. Now that is a good person to know!**
The funny part is this: We are sitting at lunch after practice at the dining table and LBS says to Beautiful Wife, "I have two underwears on." BW and I just look at each other, skeptically."Just kidding," he says quickly afterward. We just brush it off. It turns out 4 year olds have weird things running through their heads and they like to say them out loud a lot. We completely discount it.
That night, getting the kids ready for bed, it turns, yes, in fact he is wearing 2 pairs of underwear. The outer one is on backwards too! Great! That must be comfortable...
So, our 'friend' (I only put it in quotes because I hardly know the women - she is actually very nice and kind and we both really like her, but we are not really friend yet) must think we are really on the ball parents. Little boy running around with 2 sets of undies, one on backwards... Parenting fail. PARENTS 0 - Berserker Spawn 1.
Well played son, well played.
**The real test is next week - will she watch them again? DUN DUN DA DUN.
