Sometimes, I feel about 3 inches tall. When my wife or kids are asking me about things or if we can do things I may say…maybe….we’ll see….yes….no….but most of the time I NEVER promise unless pressed to do so. Why is it that EVERY time… I get those words…YOU PROMISED! No, I am pretty sure that I said we’ll see or I said Maybe! I feel like such a turd when this is thrown in my face. I would like to do all of the things that other’s would like to do, but just do not have enough time in my day.
Now, I guess the next question is how to get this point across…without hearing …YOU PROMISED WE WOULDN’T HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS!! I am joking right now but. I don’t want my children to really believe that I am breaking promises to them. I need to get the point across as to what a promise is and what does maybe or we’ll see mean. If they think that I am not following through on my end of the deal, it could change the way that they carry themselves throughout the rest of their lives. Do I just explain this over and over knowing full well that the next time I say we’ll see or maybe again…I promised?
Oh the DRAMA! I am confusing myself…I Promise!!
