One, Two, Three, Four...

I declare a ketchup war.

At least, I did. See, dinner time in our house is usually full of chuckles and smiles - we sit down, Tam ignores her dinner, me and Jo chat over the kids making a noise, and Jaysen invariably gets in a mess. First day back to school, so he was starved bless him, so we had the good old favourite of chicken burgers and chips. Easy dinner, Tam actually eats it, Jaysen will eat most things, and I'm not fussy.

Our dinner table often has other shenanigans going on, usually of the Me vs. Jaysen variety. Name calling, face pulling, dead-arms and dead-legs, stealing food from each other - real Dad/Son stuff ;) As he finished tonight, I burped which made him laugh, and caused the little banana to drop food - doused in ketchup - down his front. With a baby wipe he cleaned it off, and then threw it at me. He caught me in the eye and legged it and right there, I decided what had to happen. It was fated, written in stone, and his destiny. An eye for an eye.

Jo called him back in to apologise, and I attacked with everything I had. Namely, the bottle of Heinz.






And yes, that last picture DOES show him with a large amount of sauce down his boxers. Straight down his butt crack. He says he'll get me back, but I'm not worried - I am bigger than he is.

Tam got hit in a *ahem* friendly fire incident, but Mummy cleaned her off. Mummy cowered for her life, screaming "Mind the clean laundry" she has strategically positioned herself beside. Other victims were the net curtains, the actual curtains, the floor, table, walls, ceiling... And I have one solitary Jaysen-sized ketchupy handprint on my shirt.

He fought the Pa, and the Pa won.

Excellent! That's what childhood should be all about. Our boys regularly try it on with Pete. He always gets them back, and normally makes them cry!

Good victory and very amusing. However as a strategist I would be planning suitable defences for a time not far away when he is as big or bigger than you.

Good luck

I'd like him to shoot mayo all over your belly and then we could sell the photos on the interweb!

OH wow Dan. I think your house is full of fun, well done you for letting it be. My Martin would moan like hell for wasting sauce and playing about at dinner time.

Minge said...

Vile fun. Wonderful. If only all Dads were like Dan.

We'd all be a lot happier, I think.
