Lesson probably not learned...

Recently while in the grocery store Zack turned to me and started begging. "Please Mom, I really want to try it, I promise I will eat it." Knowing my son as well as I do I said no because I know he would not eat this item that he was begging for.
He continued his begging. I continued saying no.
Not really having the patience at the time I eventually and reluctantly agreed but made sure I told him that I knew he would not like it. "Oh yes I will Mom. Oh and we will need crackers to go with it."
Rolling my eyes knowing it was money that was going in the trash.

That very afternoon  I heard "Mom can I have it now, please?" So I made up a plate and set it on the table for him. He quickly put it in his mouth and almost immediately made a face. Just as quickly as he put it in his mouth is a quickly as he spit it out. "I do believe I heard a 'that is gross' come out of this childs mouth.

At this point I took the moment to repeat what I said in the store... that he would not like it! This was my opportunity to remind him that I am always right and he should never question me again! Really when is the child going to learn I am Queen and should never ever be questioned?!

What is this disgusting thing that I speak of?

None of than...

8 years ago

So hard to believe that 8 years ago today I was going to the doctor for my 'why in the world won't this kid vacate the premises' appointment. Yes he was already 9 days late and I was not so happy that he assumed he could take up permanent residence in a space he clearly outgrew a while ago! It was then that I knew this kid would be trouble... pure trouble. That day the doctor decided to serve him with eviction papers because this kid clearly had set up a nice comfy environment for himself with no regard for the body parts of mine that he was torturing. Heck my kidneys still won't speak to me because of the constant punishment they received. Although this landlord wanted the tenant out I refused the forceful eviction and decided to try to coax him out. The only problem with that, I did not realize how long it would take...

David Allen

David Allen I want to wish you the Happiest Birthday ever. It is unreal to me that I could have a child your age but I do. I hope you have many more happy healthy years. I love you with every beat of my heart. ~Mom

Trouble ahead

Zackary got off the bus looking annoyed. Of course I asked what the problem was. He said "Mom I just do not think I am going to talk to my teacher until after lunch tomorrow." Hmm, what in the world could have happened for him to be like that, after all he likes his teacher. So I dig a little deeper until I get to the cause of the problem.

Apparently while teaching the class his teacher asked what makes the arr sound. He responded with "Mom I was just trying to be a little funny and I said 'A pirate' but I guess she didn't think it was so funny."

Anyone else seeing the makings of a photo of my child in his high school yearbook with the words 'class clown' next to it?

Shaking my head.
