So, every one has one. The kid next door who always finds trouble. Gets you to do things you wouldn’t do with out his help. Not necessarily the “bad” kid, but someone you just get into trouble with. Why? Who knows? Common sense just leaves when they show up.
I had one. A cousin, lived five house’s to the left. I wasn’t the best kid, far from it. But I never got caught. With him I just didn’t seem to care, as if I could blame him for anything to get out of trouble.
But then we were the bad kids, our neighbors across the street. Toby’s best friend growing up. But according to his mom he would never do that, it was all Toby’s fault.
Bottom line is now Bailey has one. A little boy who’s dad plays softball with me. When they’re together at the field LOOK OUT. I sit and brag to no end how well behaved Bailey is everywhere, to my mom and every one reading this and the one game everyone comes to, I had to yell at Bailey like I never have before. Nutshell is he kept running behind rides at the carnival ( out of sight ). That is not the last picture of my son in my head I want for the rest of my life, him just disappearing behind the port o potty. He knows the rules, he knows the consequences.
It caused me to yell at another team members mom for getting into my business. I didn’t know who she was at the time, or I would have handled it differently. But if you don’t know me, shut your mouth about my business and same goes if you do know me. Unless I’m in YOUR home, keep your distance.
Bailey gets embarrassed very easily, so that was the last thing I wanted to do. But he needs to know I WILL stop playing or whatever I’m doing and handle the situation. I can guarantee it won’t happen again. Believe me, I’ve been told by my mom, she might take me for a walk behind the barn many times!!
