My ds1 was trying to "vacuum" his grandpa (my FIL) with a belt that was attached to a play shopping cart. I thought it was very imaginative .
My FIL kept saying, "Look at that look on his face. He can't wait to hit me with that! He knows you're watching, so he is being good, but any minute now..." and so on.
I was next to ds the whole time, and I could clearly see how he was just simply "vacuuming" his grandpa. Then ds1 told me he was going to catch a fish for his grandpa, so he started to do the fishing motion (which I did tell him he had to do away from people because someone could get hit by the belt) and my FIL insisted that ds1 was trying to hit him.
What do you do when people JUST.DON'T.LISTEN?!?!
I'm just annoyed because FIL always says things like this, no matter what I tell him. Blah.
