I’m Faster than You! No You’re Not!


– What are we renting? – Skis. – Skis! – Having a competition of
who can fall down the least, and Julie totally just fell down. – [Ruby] Are you gonna be a sore loser? – I’m pissed off. – [Ruby] (gasps) I regret that, I’m really sorry. Mama learned an important lesson, do not put competition
over being nurturing. That really hurt Julie’s feelings. (upbeat theme song) This is why I love Christmas break. Because there is nothing on the calendar for two full weeks. What are we going to do today? Okay, I think I found something
to fill our time today. First stop, Outdoors Unlimited. (mellow jazz music) Abby, how are your new boots? – They’re great. – Do they feel good? – Yeah. – You look cute, those are darling! We’re getting here the moment they open. And there’s already a line. I hope they have your size Abby. We’re renting, what are we renting? – Skis. – Skis! That’s right, Abby grew out of hers. Handed ’em down to Russell. Julie’s using Chad’s today and, no, she inherited Chad’s. Chad needs new ones (sighs). It’s the ring around the rosies. It’s the musical chairs that you play, with skis and lots of kids. (rhythmic blues music) (clip snaps) (price gun beeps) – Ah, it’s gummy worms,
– Num, num, num, num, num, num, num, num.
– And we bought these. Let’s go skiing. – I have had so many
experiences where my kids have learned hard lessons
about being prepared and being responsible for their ski gear. And now I know how it feels
to have dropped the ball. I forgot to bring my ski helmet. I brought my motorcycle helmet. (electric organ music) (laughs) – (Laughs) Oh my God, remember last year? When Julie fell over–
– For no reason. And then Chad tripped over her, and then I fell over (laughs) Chad? (jovial xylophone music) – (murmurs) Where are you? I’m in competition of who
can fall down the least, and Julie totally just fell down. It was hilarious, there
was snow everywhere. (Laughs) she fell down so hard. (laughs) – [Ruby] Hey, there’s Russell! – [Boy] Abby come one. – [Ruby] How you doing Russell? You’re doin’ awesome? – See ya. – [Ruby] Bye! (laughs) – Uh, uh so me and mom,
we’re doing a race, and we’re gonna go down a super hard hill. I didn’t tell mom that,
but we are (chuckles). I’m gonna win, definitely. – The girls thought that I was going to be a hindrance to them, and they would be waiting on me. The truth is–
– We were. Who’s been waiting on who? – I’ve been waiting on you. – That is not true. – Well that’s just because Abby fell down, and I tried to help her, but
she brought me down with her. – We’re gonna have a
race to put this truth out there once and for all.
– It’s gonna be me. I’m gonna win this race.
– And whoever wins get to… Whoever loses has to pay the winner $5. – I’m on for that. I’d like five more dollars in my pocket. I totally won (pants). I totally won. Where’s Julie? Oh, (laughs) I see Abby. Did Abby beat Julie too? Where’s Julie? (snow crunches) Wow, where’s Julie? – [Abby] I don’t know. – I did not think you would beat her. – No, she was in front of me, and I never passed her, so I don’t know where she is. – Where is she? – Did she turn a wrong turn? – Did she fall? – Is she goin’ around twice? – I saw her fall at one point. – Oh that’s three points for her. – She did fall.
– I mean, two points. I’m starting to get a little
nervous that I don’t see her. – I forgot to go do the dip
because I got distracted because this one guy was
coming down the side hill, and he did a full on front flip. (Laughs) Oh it was hilarious. Anyway, where’s Julie? – [Ruby] There she is! There’s Julie. (Ruby laughs) – [Abby] What took you so long? – Hey Julie! We had lunch while we waited for you. Julie, what happened,
did you fall down again? – That was once. – Once, did it take a long time to get up? (Julie mumbles) – Are you gonna congratulate me, no? – [Abby] I think she just
fell down and couldn’t get up. I can’t get up, I can’t get up. (laughs) – All right. – [Abby] Sorry, sorry. Well anyway, that’s two points for you.
– Kind of a sore loser. – [Julie] Abby, I’m not doing it anymore. – [Ruby] Are you gonna be a sore loser? – I’m pissed off. (gasps) Why? Because I won? – [Abby] No, because you just left me. – It was a race. – You’re my mom, mom. – [Abby] Julie, sometimes mom’s gotta have fun with her kids. – I’m sorry. – [Abby] Julie, I think
you’re just a sore loser. – Julie, I’m sorry. I was getting into the competition. – [Abby] Julie is just a sore loser. – [Julie] Abby, be quiet. (upbeat jazz music) – This is a really good hand warmer. – We’re taking a bit of a lunch break, and we’re at Sundance, I’ve
never done Sundance before. It’s my least favorite ski resort because it is so cold and
you have to eat outside. I don’t know if I want
to come back here again. – You only have three hills. – I like Brighton better. – But it’s more expensive. – Snow Basin I like better. – Because you’re wet and you’re just like, I want to take my coat off. And you’re just like,
I want five more coats. – So Julie, you seem like
you’re in a bit better mood. You okay? – So I wanna know, were
you upset because I won or were you upset because
I stayed in the competition and didn’t go back and help you. – Because you just left me. – I regret that. I’m really sorry. If I could go back, I would redo it and I would help you off the ground. Do you believe me? I’m really sorry. Will you forgive me? – Yes. – You sure? Okay. (laughs) – Okay. (jovial organ music) – All right, well, mama
learned an important lesson. Do not… put competition over being nurturing, that really hurt Julie’s feelings. And… it’s okay to apologize, in fact I have found myself in
the position as the parent who had to apologize to the child many, many, many times. (sigh) I’m excited to go home and
get in the tub and soak. – That was crazy coming down that hill. – Yeah, Russel went down
the biggest hill didn’t he? – Yeah, all the way down to the T’s. – I’m proud of you. – (sighs) That looks really good. – Sushi, and it’s warm, this
is the Tempura Vegas roll. We got DoorDash for the very first time, we’re never done this before. (bag rustling) Chopsticks. – (mumbles) – After I came home from skiing, I went straight to bed, I’ve
been in bed since, what? 6:00. – Since you got home. – Since I got home, I said
I am not leaving my bedroom. So, we’re gonna have date night in bed. What did you order? – Um, teriyaki, beef, and rice. – Mmm. – (clicks mouth) I don’t like sushi. – (laughs) He’s not one for fish. I have learned a very
special lesson today. Parenting does not take a break, so the reason why Eve
did not go skiing with us was because she left
her ski coat at school. And over the Christmas
break before New Year’s they took everything
from the lost and found and took it to donate. And Eve said, well that’s
okay, just buy me a new one, just buy me a new ski coat. I said that is a very entitled attitude, and that is not how we work around here. If you lost your ski coat, you lost your privilege to go skiing. So she ended up staying home,
and you ended up staying home, but you know what I learned about Julie? I’m really, really glad that I had that experience with Julie because I learned something. I always knew she was
competitive, you’ve known she’s been competitive. – Oh, always. – She’s really competitive,
she likes to win. – She’s like Chad. – What I did not know was
that she’s very sensitive to how I mother her. I didn’t know she cared. I didn’t know she cared, and
it actually makes me feel really good to know that
she really does value me being kind to her and showing… – And she values winning too. – (laughs) And just being a sore loser. So there are a few things
that I am glad I’m aware of. I don’t need to fix her, I don’t need to fix her being competitive
because that’s not a bad thing and I don’t need to fix
her being a sore loser, it is helpful though that I’m aware of it. Don’t you think? – Mmhmmm. – Yeah, so, okay, let’s eat. You guys, I hope you had
a really good day today. I hope that your new year is
going really well for you. It might be a little, I
don’t know, bumpy, (laughs) but I’m hoping that you
get all of your goals set out there, I hope that
you work hard on them, and I hope that this year
brings you many, many joys. – Here’s to a prosperous 2020. – Goodnight. (jovial xylophone music)
