Like Father, Like Son

One of huns favorite sayings is, "Rules are kinda like guitar strings you have to bend them a little to make music."
Yesterday we went to an amusement park with my sister and her family. We took Spencer (7) but not Tyce (4) since he wanted to stay home with his aunt who was going to babysit Kaden (2) for the day. It over 100' so towards the end of the afternoon we decided to head on over to the water part of the park. We had 9 of us in our group and we all lined up to go down this tube slide that dumps you into about 4 different pools on the way down. There's a lifeguard in each pool to help send you down the next slide. Well the first round we got in and the lifeguard told hun and I to take off our glasses. So I did and then right after my husband went down the first slide he put them back on, well the lifeguard blew his whistle and told him to take them back off, so he did and then proceeded to put them back on. Hun thought that was the stupidest rule since he couldn't see so well without his sunglasses. I swear boys don't ever grow up do they? Anyway, he was going off about it and I kept telling him that it was the lifeguards job and I was grateful that he was doing his job.
The funny part was on the way home Spencer turned to me and said, "Mom at the water park we couldn't climb on the rocks. We tried but the lifeguard blew his whistle at us. That is such a stupid rule, huh!" So again I had to explain that rules are made to help people blah blah blah you know the drill. I turned to hun and just laughed as I said, "Like father, like son!"
