Monday Macaroni Madness
#Operation IFO

So how was everybody’s weekend? After 7-1/2 hours of work (out of the house) over 2 days last week I decided a quiet weekend was in order. After all, I have 3 more days (ok…so they are only half days…still…haaallloo) to go. 

Last Monday I took some video of Operation IFO. Then we had a breakthrough the following day and I never got around to posting it.

I tried to be inconspicuous and had the camera on the kitchen island in the hopes of recording R’s disgruntled dialogue. Instead, and much to my surprise, if you listen closely you will hear Riley’s negotiating tactics.

If you can't see the video, click here to play.

When I moved the camera in order to capture R’s pinpoint accuracy at picking up one macaroni at a time in a piston-like manner…he was less than pleased. 

In order to maintain peace in Riley World this will be the only recorded evidence and hopefully one of the last blog posts of Operation IFO. One can only hope.

Have a great week!

  1. I got to see two vlogs in one day on blogs I like to read! Love it.
    It is very helpful to be able to hear his voice and see him at work. It will make picturing your future posts that much easier. I love the way he ate that macaroni.
    Operation IFO seems to be working well! Good job, both of you!

    1. Later he blurted out "HAPPY!"...it's sometimes very hard to keep a straight face when he looks like a one-sided chipmunk. Haahaa!

  2. you have the willingness. That's a huge step! We don't have that for most things. I just love watching his videos. Did he say "skip shower"? lol That's Tommy's #1 negotiation at the moment. I think I could get him to do most anything if I allow him to skip a shower lol

    1. Yup...what's up with that?!?!? For some reason "skip shower" seems to be a real incentive these days. Hopefully it's just their age. :O
