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!
