“I’m obnoxious.”

My little boys love racing each other down a ramp near our house. Yesterday, much to my two-year-old’s chagrin, my seven-year-old, Li’l D, only wanted to run down twice.

“Could you please run down one more time with him?” I asked D. D, seizing the opportunity, said he’d run down it one more time … if I said I was obnoxious.

I weighed his proposal for a moment before mumbling, “I’m obnoxious.”

“What? I couldn’t hear you,” he teased.

“I’m obnoxious!” I said, much louder.

He grinned before racing down the ramp with Littler J. 

“Again?!” D asked. 

“I’m obnoxious,” I replied. 

Both my boys laughed as they raced down the ramp one more time, and I? I laughed, too.

    I love the little moments of silliness I have with my daughter like you had with your sons. The last moment we had together like that was singing “Can’t Get Enough” by Winger….I know, total 80’s cheeseball hair metal. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think we all have a tendency to be obnoxious and admitting it is great, especially if it keeps the young ones entertained.

      I’m at what I hope is the tail end of a six-month or so obnoxious streak. It would’ve felt fair to say these words even without the giggles! ๐Ÿ™‚
