The Hubs is one of the most stubborn people I know. He’s right, you’re wrong and that is all there is to that. On top of that, The Hub’s job also puts him in a position of authority. He’s very used to people telling people what to do and having them hop to. Those traits serve him very well both professional and personally. Except for when they are reflected back at him through his kids.
Dinner tonight was a low key affair, so the kids ate sitting on the bar stools in the kitchen while the Hubs sat at the table behind them. Beaner was sitting on her knees and wasn’t very steady so the Hubs asked her to please sit on her bum so she didn’t fall off the stool.
She ignored him.
He called her name again and repeated his request. Beaners squared her little jaw and continued to ignore him.
I tried to intervene but The Hubs asked me to let him take care of it, so I backed off while keeping my eyes on the Bean. He repeated his request one more time, this time telling her if she doesn’t answer him, she will be going to timeout.
She lifted her hiney in the air and settled it very carefully and very purposefully back on her feet, sitting on her knees still.
Honest to God, I thought the Hubs head was going to explode as he picked her up and carried her to time out.
I do believe he’s met his match!
