the hitting game

a few years ago my mom told me a story about gavan when he was a little boy. gavan had hit my mom and in an attempt to stop the hitting she said, "oh? do you want to play the hitting game?" so, he hit her and then she hit him hard and he cried. he didn't like that game so much. fast forward to a few days ago....

lala was getting upset with something i was asking her to do so she hit me in the leg. thinking back to the story my mom told me i think "i can stop this" and i say, "oh? do you want to play the hitting game?" lala gets a big grin and says, "yea!" my hands were full so we played the "kicking game" instead. lala kicks me, so i kick her. she kicks me and i kick harder. she kicks me again, i kick harder still, apparently not hard enough. nothing is phasing her so i said, "lala, i think you just need to go to your room." and i walk away. lala starts crying and mitch asks her what is wrong. she wails, "i want to play the hitting game!!!"

that back fired!
