He did it behind my back......................

It was a hot Saturday afternoon around 3 PM, after allowing Marvell to play with his computer games for about 2 hours, i told him it would be nice for him to stop and having a nap with me and no more computer games until after dinner.

He conceded, we walked into the bedroom and i thought he was as tired as i was and i dozed off first, i have always been a light sleeper, after about 20 minutes of nap, i heard TV sounds coming from the living room, i thought it should be Jovial watching TV( He loves watching TV)

No, Jovial was next to me, napping as well, i woke up, sauntered into the living room, the TV was on but no one was watching and as i turned my attention to my computer station, I saw Marvell was so engrossed playing computer games and my presence was so obscure to him.

I stood there for a minute ,then called out," Marvell, what are you doing?" he was caught with his pants down,(hahhaha so to speak) then i pretended to be angry with slight increase of my voice and said this," Marvell, you are very smart ho, you turned on the TV, pretending that you were watching it and instead you were playing PC behind my back,ho?"

When i saw his eyes moist with tears, i pulled him to me and gave him a hug and telling," Don't worry son, i am not going to punish you, you know what, when papa was small, i did more things behind my father's back then you but i only want to ask you a simple question, can or not?"

Now tears began to roll down his face and he nodded, then i asked," Son, how to build trust between two persons?" and to be very frank, i did not expect such an adult answer from him, i would expect was something like this, "I don't know papa" "I am sorry Papa" but he said this..........

"Papa, i am sorry," a short pause, then he continued," Papa, trust has to be earned".........again i gave him a hug and telling him,please do not do anything behind my back again , hahahhahahah.

Note : I like cheeky boys

P/S : He said it,I was proud and that's cool

  7. Ah...the prodigal son! Can't blame him. Kids love those games...and they ARE addictive.

    This is a VERY serious matter. Better watch out! I know top students, JPA scholars, called back as they did not do well in exams - addicted to online games! Scholarship withdrawn! Must nip it in the bud...
