I have proof!

Now, I have a definitive answer as to why my children wait to talk to me until I am on the phone. Today the following conversation took place between Braxton and I.

Brax: "Mom!!!"

Me: "What son?"

Brax: "Are you on the phone?"

Me: "No, why? What do you need?"

Brax: "Okay, nevermind..."
(As if to say that now that I know you are not on the phone, I no longer need you. I'll wait until you are on the phone to interrupt.)

Anyone that has ever called my house while my children are home know that this truly is the case. My theory has finally been proven. Yay!!!

oh my gosh, this drives me absolutely nuts. really, i've enacted my more serious punishments for interrupting mom when she's on the phone. I think its just the worst.

So true. It drives me crazy when my kids to this. Especially the older ones who know better and who are annoyed if I interrupt them while they are on the phone. I have actual memories of doing the same thing to my mom. I don't think anything made her more angry!
