Frenemies


Even though she mauls him daily, he really does love her. She'll climb all over him and he just lays there and takes it, kind of like my husband--just kidding honey, everybody knows you fight back.

Speaking of 'just kidding', my son went through a phase a few months ago where he would say something like, "this dinner isn't very good, just kidding." and "your hair looks ugly, just kidding." and "I'm gonna take a grenade and throw it in her room, just kidding."

So we had to have the discussion with him that just because you say "just kidding" at the end, doesn't negate what you already said, some things you just don't say.

The husband and I thought it was pretty funny and for the next few weeks we'd throw completely off the wall barbs at each other, pretending to be like a few other couples we know like:

"You took the best years of my life and made me the bitter person I am,(pause for effect) just kidding."

"If you would have given me a piece here or there I wouldn't have to go boink the nanny, just kidding."

Yeah, we're twisted and we tease each other a ton, but I've never met another couple that laughs as much as we do and when someone makes you laugh, it's pretty hard to stay mad.

My 10-year-old sister does this exact same thing. And 90% of the time she is not kidding whatsoever, but by the time she's said whatever nasty thing she says, she can tell that it's not going over well, so she goes "haha, just kidding". And then we beat her. Just kidding.

spatula-
that's funny, when she sees it's not going well she'll use it as the back track, very 10 year old.
