Some day you will thank me for what I just did. A football game is on and difficult child is watching it on the big screen. husband is watching it downstairs in his office and I made supper. When supper was ready, I said, "difficult child when there is a break in the game please go tell your dad that supper is ready and you can help yourself." I don't think difficult child heard me - atleast not the entire sentence. Pretty sure he heard supper was ready so I hear a, "Mom, bring me my food!" "No, when there is a break in the game, you can get your own plate and go let your father know that he can come get his." So, I have put an end to the start of "woman thou shalt serve me" that some men get into during a game. (husband is not like this so this should be easy to squelch) Besides, sitting for so long is not the best - they need to stretch their legs so I am helping in more ways than one! husband came up on his own looking for food the same time difficult child started toward the kitchen - must have been a break in the game! LOL!
