Backtalk and Back Wash

As of late, Jake has really been testing his limits with backtalk. And, as with most kids who recently came home from a stay with the grandparents, it’s been more obvious than normal lately. But today seemed to be different. Today, Jake started the day with a fantastic outlook and was eager to help me with chores. I was pretty amazed.

We decided to go out disc golfing as a family today. Being that Jacob was being such a sweet kiddo, (as was Ben, though his involvement with this particular story is minimal…) Ryan decided that he would stop and get a few treats for the family. He found some chocolate donuts that the kids were eager to scarf down.

After a few moments of chewing his donut, Jake asked Ryan for a drink of his Gatorade. Ryan declined citing that Jake likes to leave floaties.

Jake’s response: “Dad! It’s CHOCOLATE DONUT! It should taste GOOD!” (and then proceeded to roll his eyes, ‘as if!’.

All in all though, Jake did a great job on the course and an even better job turning his attitude around.


About Mindy

I am a mother of two boys, a disc golfer, a former derby girl, a sonographer and an aspiring writer. Sometimes words and events replay in my head endlessly until I let them out. I am verbose. I have lots to say all of the time. If there's something you'd like to know, you'd be better off asking.

  1. I only had one son, so I can’t attest to differences among children. I can attest, however, to their belief that they know way more than their parents about everything (except for when they’re scared).
