DeCode Wednesday

Today, I'm Joining Maricris at Zen Ventures with Decode Wednesday. This is a game where your pictures are not quite what they seem. You're supposed to "decode" what's really going on. So here goes...

Gentle Children-Start Your Engines!!!!


Let the Dump Truck Races Begin...

With a steely glint in his eye and a wheel over the staring line, Wyatt aims to win. Meanwhile, Ella's looking for her pit crew...


Here are my kids running a muck with their dump trucks loaded up with toys. They do hot laps like Nascar drivers up and down my tiny hallway and skid recklessly across the kitchen floor leaving black tire tracks that are almost impossible to remove. Add in the careening into the cabinets and chairs, and this is just a load of fun.

Ella's in the lead! Go Baby Go!


With these joyful events, my children are capable of screeching at decibels levels that deafens all the dogs in a one mile radius of our home, so it's no wonder that the ringing in my own ears reflects premature hearing loss. I also think dolphins start beaching themselves on the coast when Wyatt yells at pitches inaudible to the human ear drum.

But what else am I to do when it is raining outside?? I just let the half-lings frolic like they've eaten 14 bowls of sugar coated hyper pops.

But wait... What is this? Do you see what I see? Is there something shiny in the bed of these trucks? Is it an oasis? A mirage? Be it silver colored? Be it a beverage of some kind or another?


"Aha!" you say... You are becoming enlightened. These dump truck races are actually a formulated and premeditated............
"Parental Beverage Delivery System."


This is the only way for parents to endure the indoor crash-up derby. I think Daddy Mike can have the first beer. I'll get a fresh one from the fridge...thankyouverymuch!

Loved this story. Looks like the kids have a blast doing this. I sure could use a beverage delivery system like this. Especially if it's a nice cold beer. LOL! I might have to try this with my four year old.

HA HA HA HA HA !!!!

Daddy better watch out... too many crashes will make for a beer explosion when he opens it!

I came by to welcome you to SITS! Now I have to go out and buy a dump truck for my daughter-- thank goodness! I was getting so tired of going to the refrigerator every 20 minutes!

That's a great idea. I should be working all of my son's energy for useful purposes.

Oh my, that is hilarious. I've got to tell my husband about that one, maybe he'd agree to have more children!

Tink said...

That is so funny, They are good little gofers.

Debbie said...

Now that is some smart parenting! You should give classes.

Dto3 said...

That's why I kept having kids! Just, grooming them for the waiting gigs they'll have in college, I always say.

Rachael said...

I totally can't wait for the day when my Kid knows how to whip up a "shaken, not stirred, with 3 olives, dry martini!" just kidding. but at least he can learn to grab the beer outta the fridge!

P.S. Word verification = nontramp
