Turning the tables on my son

Moms, if you’re anything like me, you probably grow a wee bit tired of some of the fads and crazes that the kids bring home from school.  In this past year, we have had our fair share of Pokémon madness.  What in the world is this Pokecrap? Why are they so important?  All I know is that the cards have flooded my house and I find one of these little creatures at every turn, under every couch cushion, underneath all of our beds, and even once in the fridge. The only one I can even stand is Pikachu. Pikachu is cute.  The rest can go back to Pokeland.  Then the constant dabbing for everything.  I’ve seen my son dab so much, that I now find myself unwittingly dabbing to adults.  Its contagious.  I’ve caught the dab fever.  I don’t want it, but I have it.  Oh, and let’s not forget the water bottle challenge.  Whoever invented this gem is a genius. Really, its so fun to hear and see the constant flipping of bottles over and over and over again.  And again…and again…and again….just to make it land on its bottom.  That really makes me want to land my hand on his bottom.  All the flipping is flipping annoying.  Have y’all seen the latest and greatest craze?  The ever so purposeful fidget spinner!  Do you know what it does?  It spins!  That’s right, it spins! This is somehow very amusing and we have spinners spinning out of control in our house.  I’m tired of picking them up and I even find myself sometimes spinning them just to see what the fuss is all about.  For a moment I feel like Spinderella, right before I come to my senses and realize that these spinners are merely for parent and teacher aggravation, but I can certainly see the hypnotic effect they have.

So, I decided to turn the tables on this kid.  I flipped the script on him to give him a taste of his own medicine.  I figured out that they key to getting your kids to stop doing something is for you to do it and make it seem like its so cool so they no longer think its cool.  Yep, it worked like a charm……or did it?  Watch and see his reaction.

What other fads did I leave out here, moms?  Comment below and share your kid’s latest craze!

    What’s weird about the cards is that Pokemon was popular when I was a kid. I thought they were ridiculous then. I definitely don’t get it now. You’re great with the fidget spinner. I couldn’t figure out what they were for, LOL.
