Howzat??

Before dinner...

Limelette #1: Mom, you need a haircut. You look like some wild, drugged-out hippy with that mop of hair.

Me: Deal with it.

#1: Why are you making chili for dinner? You know how much I hate that!

Me: Feel free to plan the menu, shop, and cook if you are not satisfied by my efforts.

#1: Mom, turn off that horrible salsa music and for heavens sake STOP dancing around the kitchen. Mothers should not shake their butts like that.

Me: (turning up the volume and dancing with more vigor)

After dinner......

#1: Mom, I can't believe you'd go out in public like that. Would you please put on something that looks like it is not from 30 years ago.

Me: You have a problem with dashikis? Why don't you go change your shirt before we leave, kiddo. You got chili on it.

#1: WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS CRITICIZING ME??????

  • OK, I'm sure this is coming, but for now? Its not so much an issue as,
    "NO! You cannot go out with only one shoe on, I don't care how well you can hop, you MUST have both shoes!"
    "Get back there and ________
    (brush your hair, brush your teeth, put on deoderant, change out of your pajamas, take off the plastic fang teeth, etc. etc. etc.) before we need to leave!"

    The two little boys in my life don't really seem to notice if my hair is brushed, or much of anything else.

  • I'm still in Logo's phase too!! But, it's only a matter of time with my 3 little darlings especially if they start listening to their auntie mel's comments about my hair and attire.
