Weird kid

My son is weird. I realize that. No, I'm not talking about the one who constantly has things stuck inside his belly button, I'm talking about my youngest son, Taj. He has *the* most interesting personality. Sometimes he's so rad. I just love watching him play because his imagination amazes me. But other times I'm thinking, "What the heck is wrong with this kid??" He'll throw psycho-fits and be all... weird.

Like yesterday at church for instance. He loves going to his class on most Sundays, but yesterday he told me as he clung to my leg, "That doesn't look like my regular teacher." I told him it was indeed his regular teacher and that he had just had a haircut. Taj refused to believe me. He wouldn't go to class and he was hiding behind my leg with his head like all stuck in my butt. It was really embarrassing. Anyway... there was crying, and wailing and gnashing of teeth, but eventually he agreed to sit with his class if I sat by him. He sat on the edge of his seat, as close as he could to me and wouldn't make eye contact with the teacher who had the audacity to get a haircut! But then, out of no where, Taj looked at me and said, "Ok. I happy now. You can go." Whaa?????

What's funny is his teacher actually said, "I'm sorry for getting a haircut without calling you 1st Taj." Yeah, he *should* be sorry. Hmmph.

That is so cute and funny... I totally know the head up your butt stance... It's one I prefer not to do. :)

That's funny because it wasn't me.

My kids have learned the hard way to not stick their heads in my butt because that is the direct line of fire.

Ha, what they said!
my kid cries if my hub just trims his beard a little

Jenny said...

Nothing like crying, wailing and gnashing of teeth ... in church. It would be nice to know what finally "solved" the problem for him!! LOL!

Silly Taj! He is an interesting boy isn't he! At least next time the teacher will ask first before changing his appearance. ;)

Annie wins!

LOL. You should never get a haircut Tori, who know what'll happen then.

Lauren said...

This doesnt seem odd to me for some reason. Maybe because the kids in my class act like that every week. I get my life threatened by them for the silliest stuff every week.

Kayelyn said...

LOL. I'm thinking that the teacher didn't know Taj, because his head was hiding (Bwahahahaha) and then I read EWBL's comment and had to tell your story to the fam. (I hope that was okay?)

I super-dee-dooper love that Taj has a male primary teacher. That Rocks!

LOL There is a kid in nursery who cries and cries if he doesn't have his mom or dad there. So, they take turns. No-not me. But, the wife has had to bear the brunt when they try and leave him alone. The kid cries in her arms, I want my mommy; I want my daddy! Waa Waa! It'd be funny, except our youngest would probably be that kid if the wife wasn't the nursery leader. Yes...pity my wife...you read right. She IS the nursery leader. It gets better...no help. I go in there during priesthood, but she is alone while I teach Sunday School. Sorry for the hijcak. It is only kinda on topic.

I LOVE how you retell these types of stories. You are so funny, Tori! I mean, Taj is hilarious, but you relay his personality so well. Thanks for relaying it here, for us, for me.

P.S. I don't look forward to the day Liam's head hits me in the butt and hides there. Ugh.

You are such a funny writer.

I hate when John tries to hide "back there" waaaa~

NOBODY said...

Oh man the bodily violation with our children's heads---hate it.
Taj is hilarious. You are a good mom for going and sitting with him. That's why he can be confident and tell you to go so quickly!
Way to be serious and analytical about a funny story Angela.
You are welcome.

Haha, sooo cute! There is a 5 year-old boy in our Primary, NOT my child, who comes up behind me and hugs my bootay...nearly every week. I like Elastic's idea, muahaha! >:)
