Funny Things I've Heard This Week

It's been a while since I've kept you all up with the funny things that have been said and done around these parts, but trust me the laughs keep happening.

For example.....

Miss M came to me yesterday with a very serious look on her face and told me she had a question about the wedding we are going to this weekend; "How will I know which one is our second cousin, the bride?"

I told her not to fear as the bride normally wears a white dress so she's the easiest one to spot. It gets more confusing with the groom as all men look alike in Tuxes.

She was so relieved.

Miss A and I were talking in the car the other day about school next year and whether she's going to miss me being gone all day. Obviously not concerned about hurting my feelings, she said that I "was rather boring so she's not going to miss me much." Plus, she said, "I'll see you at night and on the weekends." Now, she's really going to miss shopping with mom, lunch out with Nana, and pajama days, but "mom" are you kidding.

Mr C has been invited to join the Order of the Arrow for Boy Scouts. Last Saturday night, they had a small ceremony at a Camp nearby and C was scheduled to attend with his troop. Granted, it had been a long day and C was tired, but when I asked him to please go change into his Class A Uniform he refused. He said that it wasn't necessary and he really did not want to go. I told him it was not negotiable. He asked if there would be snacks.

Seriously, is that the only reason my children go to any event?

I told him no, go change. We then texted my husband who was out of town to ask if Mr. C did indeed need to wear Class A uniform. He texted back yes! C then proceeded to put on just the shirt.

I texted "doesn't he need to wear khaki pants or shorts with the class A top?" Quick response from Dad, "Yes"

Let's just say it was a long evening getting ready. But I'm proud to say the boy left my house in khaki pants and a Class A uniform!

When C returned later that evening, I asked about the event and what he thought of the ceremony. His response, "What a waste of an evening, there weren't any snacks at all."

Maybe next time, I will share the actual text "conversation" between my husband and son.
