Tonight, He Asked To Move Out For The First Time

Let it be known, tonight, at the tender age of 3 1/2ish years old, Kendall asked to move out of his parents’ house for the first time in his life.

Context:

We love letting Kendall play Wii Sports as a way to keep him active and occupied when he would otherwise be vegging in front of a TV show. That said, we rue the day we ever let him play boxing. He now punches anyone, everyone and everything. Of course, he’s just playing; it’s not a hard punch, but unacceptable, nonetheless.

After he “punched” Scott while getting ready for bed tonight, Scott pulled him into his room and said, “Son, that is IT. You will not play that boxing game ever again. NEVER. Not until you move out.”

To which Kendall replied, “Daddy, I want to move out!”

“Well, you’ll have to get a real job then, Kendall.”

“Daddy, I want to move out and get a real job and play punch.”

So… if any of you have a small apartment and a job opening, let us know.

Kendall is 3 years 5 months old
