Not Clear On The Concept

Today, Noah became very frustrated with Luka about something and started saying some very mean and hurtful words. I told him that that kind of talk was not acceptable in our family, and so he stomped off to go draw a picture for Luka to show him his feelings since he was not allowed to do so verbally. He brings the drawing to Luka and presents it.

Noah: Here, Luka, this is for you.

Luka: For me?

Noah: Yeah. It's a picture of an evil chicken eating a boy and it's to show you how angry I am at you and that I really wish you would get eaten by something.

Luka: You made a picture for me!?

Noah: Yeah. This here says, "I - hate - you."

Luka: I LOVE IT!

Noah: You aren't supposed to love it. It's to show you how angry I am at you!

Luka: It's beautiful! Thank you, Noah!

Noah: It's not beautiful! It's MEAN! It says, "I hate you" on it!

Luka: What's this word?

Noah: It's HATE! It says HATE! H-A-T-E!!!

Luka: Good job, Noah!

Noah: You don't understand! You are getting attacked by this evil chicken!

Luka: Is me?

Noah: Yeah. And an evil chicken!

Luka: I love it! Thank you, Noah!

Noah: Oh... NEVER MIND!!!!!

I feel Noah's pain. Communicating our innermost feelings is often a challenge. Right now my innermost feelings can't stop laughing.

OMG, that's brilliant! I can totally see this happening btw my kids!

That is so funny. I can only imagine how frustrated Noah was by all this.

I immediately had to call Gregory over when I read this. The evil chicken sounds like something he would come up with. He laughed the whole time he was reading it.

Awesome! I love how Luka was unwittingly the perfect foil to the anger Noah was trying to work through. Aren't siblings fun? :-D

I have to keep coming back and reading this. I giggle everytime I read it. Dave, Sam and I have been talking about this all weekend. We keep saying "I looovvve it!"

Derek said...

Was it wrong of me to have laughed uproariously at this? I don't mean to seem callous to Noah's plight... but this scene is truly and undeniably forkin' HILARIOUS!

I don't suppose it would cheer Noah at all to know that he is already beating Abbott & Costello with their own schtick? Probably not. Anyway, do they have special school programs for comedic prodigies?
