The other day these two were happily playing outside when suddenly Gabe starts wail crying. I mean like wake-the-neighbors scream crying. I’m bracing myself for the long drawn-out story of who did what and who slugged who, certain that the usual litigation of Paw Patrol scooter property rights is coming. (One scooter has twisty handle bars from a nasty fall and the other still meanders down the road in a relatively straight line. So naturally it’s a thing we duke it out over on a daily basis.) .
I hear Gabe stomp up to the screen door, sobbing his heart out the whole way. He gets to the door, stops dead in his tracks and says to no one in particular, “Oh, never mind.” He turns on his heel as quick as he’d come and scampers back off to play, NOT A TEAR IN HIS EYE. ⠀⠀
Oh, NEVER MIND??!!! Nothing is real. It’s all a show, folks. Someone get this kid some acting lessons. What’s a mom to do with all this drama?! ⠀⠀
