It's Miller Lite Time!

Ok so I'm sure you are all wondering why I titled my post that way, right? Well you wouldn't believe what I got for Mother's Day? I got beer! Yep, you heard correctly! I bet none of you can say that about your Mother's Day gifts, right? We were in Nebraska over the weekend and my wonderful son and husband stopped by the liquor store to pick up wine for dinner. My son apparently saw this huge 24oz of Miller Lite in the cooler and thought it was calling my name. Hmmmmm......what does that say about my parenting if my son knows what I like to drink and better yet, that my husband agreed to buy it? Please people don't call DCFS!

The whole family got a kick out of it and it did get a laugh out of me, but I didn't feel the need to crack it open just yet! We traveled home and my son put in in the fridge. He asks me every time he opens it if I would like to drink it! Honey, "It's 7:00 in the morning, I think coffee will work just fine!"

Yesterday his friends came over after school and they were all chatting about their day and deciding what they were going to do. One of his friends named Brad asked me what I got for Mother's Day. I said, "Oh the kiddos picked me a lovely bouquet (so lovely the roots were still attached)! James' friend told me he gave his mother a rose and I thought how sweet. James said, "Yah, well I bet none of you gave your mom a beer for Mother's Day? They all looked at me and then James took it out of the fridge and showed it to them. Now remember they are all ten and boys so they thought it was pretty cool and James thought he had given the best gift. Can you imagine the dinner conversations last night around the neighborhood? So, what did you do at James' house? Oh, we hung out and guess what James got his mom for Mother's Day? Beer! Whhhattttt?



I guess the true test will be if any kids come over after school! Maybe that's why we're the fun house! No seriously, not around the kids, honest!

I think that's a cool gift!!! I've given my son a 6-pk of his fav beer for Christmas, and my DIL a gift card to her fav liquor store. Hey, the way I look at it, it's what they like, and they surely appreciated the gift! I've even done those little tiny bottles of Bailey's for stocking stuffers. Does it sound like we're good Irish/Catholics in this house!

Love the Miller Lite. Gotta love the unorthodox Mom's Day's. My mom decided she wanted to go to the Chrome Horse - a biker bar. Now if you knew my mom you would be really shocked to hear this but seriously - best Mom's Day yet. :)

Thanks for the comment about my raspberry wall idea. Confirmation is nice and I could have guessed a risk taker like you would get it. Makes me feel even better about my choice. :)
Have a good one.

I imagine those boys think you are the coolest thing going Megan and they are right! Would love to be a fly on the wall for some of those dinner conversations. I must admit I am quite envious of your gift...
I love beer, especially at the end of a hot day and it has to be really really cold!

Have a good one ;)
