Bad behavior = a good result

When does bad behavior work out to actually be a good thing? Not very often. 

Last week my mom had picked up the kids from school as she does on Thurs (THANKS Mom) so that I can take a class that will hopefully secure me a better position at work. I called my mom before class to make sure that the kids were behaving, and that they were ok. My mom  said "When I picked them up today they said that JJ had hit Ms J" I thought oh that can't be good. Ms. J is Breanna's teacher and I just love her, she is a no b.s. kind of teacher. She is the kind that will stop bad behavior in an instant. She is firm, but not mean. She is there in the mornings when I drop the kiddos off. JJ stays with her until his teacher comes to work.

So fast forward a bit. To the next morning when I stop by to drop off the kids Valentines treats and presents to their friends. Ms. J is there as usual. My mom has not dropped the kids off yet, so it is just her and I. She sees me and says "I have got to tell you something!!"

Inside my head at this point I am thinking oh crap, this isn't going to be good. My mom had told me that JJ had hit her. 

Ms. J "JJ did something yesterday that you just have to hear about"

me still in my head, ohh no here it comes

Ms. J "JJ was acting up yesterday and I told him he was going to go to time out. I picked him up to put him outside the door and he flug backwards"

me  -  still thinking to myself oh great he we go

Ms. J "I had a cyst on my wrist. It was a liquid cyst. I was going to have to have surgery on it to remove it" "When JJ flung his head backwards I was afraid he was going to hit the wall with his head, and so I put my hand behind his head"

Me - out loud "oh no"

Ms J " He flung his head right into the cyst on my wrist, and you know it popped. Now I don't have to have surgery" 


So that is the one time that a terrible 2 tantrum has actually ended up helping someone. 
Ms. J doesn't have to have surgery, thanks to my 2 year old throwing a fit.

No way! That is too funny. I think her good karma is certainly paying off ;)

That sounds awfully painful! But what a great story!

Aubrey said...

OMGosh. A little funny, yet gross. LOL

Cathy said...

Good gracious! Should you reward him, or punish him? I'm sure she was happy to not have surgery.

Wow! That is incredible!! My neck is feeling a bit sore- maybe he can ram his head into it to make it pop? You could start up a little side business...
