Chili Moron

(The nurse had already called and told me about the bus incident).

Eli:  Mommy this was the worst day ever.

Me:  What happened?

Eli:  Well I was on the bus telling "Mark" that I was happy Daddy was out of town because you would fix me pizza.

Eli:  And then he said that his mother makes the best chili and asked me if you cooked chili.

Eli:  I told him that you made it last week and you were the best cook.

Me:  Thank you.

Eli:  Then he said his mother could make better chili.  I told him you made better chili and spaghetti. 

Eli:  He said his mommy was a better cook than you and wouldn't stop talking about it.

Eli:  I called him a chili moron.  

Me:  This is a pretty heated discussion over chili.

Eli:  Then he got mad at me.  He had a sack lunch and it had an apple in the bottom of the bag and he used it to punch me in the face.

Me:  Wow. This was all over who cooked the best chili?  Well I am proud of you that you didn't hit him back.  You can't get kicked off another bus again.

Eli:  Oh I totally shoved him up against the wall Mommy.  They didn't see that part.

Sign Language

Me:  How was school?  Did you make any new friends?

Eli:  I made a new friend on the bus.  He showed me how to do this with my middle finger.

Me:  He showed you how to shoot a bird…lovely.

Eli:  He also said to say "Fut you" when you show people your middle finger.

Me:  Hummm, interesting.  It's not "Fut" and I am not telling you the correct word.

Eli:  I showed my middle finger to all my friends at school today.

Me:  No more "Futs", no more fingers.  Grown adults get in fist-fights over this because it the worst thing you can do or say.

Eli:  Really? Well my friend said he showed his finger and said "fut you" to the man who ran over his dog.

Me:  This is not going to work little Godfather.

The Sound of Crickets

School:  Mrs. Kurtz this is the Principal and I have Eli in my office.

Me:  How may I help you?

School:  I witnessed Eli shove a kid against the wall and push him to the ground.

Me:  Okay…

School:  It seems the other boy was trying to kill a cricket and Eli didn't want him to do it.

Me:  I see. Is the other child okay?

School:  Yes.  Eli is crying because he is scared to come home.  You need to calm him down.

Me:  Well he should be.  Hand him the phone please.

Me: (on the with Eli) No dead cricket is worth sitting in the principal's office.  EVER.

Eli:  I know that now Mommy!

Eli:  Mommy I may have gotten in trouble on the bus.

Me:  Not the bus again!  What did you do?

Eli:  We were playing sucker punch and I got a kid's shoulder.

Me:  Did any of the other kids KNOW they were playing sucker punch?

Eli:  No.

Me:  That's called "assault".  Quit touching other kids!

Eli:  It was a surprise and that's how you win.
