Man up Mom

I have to write this quickly so we can go enjoy our day in the 100+ degree weather we’ve been having.

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids home to my parent’s house to celebrate my little bitty sister’s last birthday in her 20s. A fun time was had by all. We had 15 Indians shouting in a room while the Bollywood channel was on full volume – what’s there not to love.

When I gave my sister her gift, I was explaining to her the rationale behind it. The thinking. The thought. The what and why of it. My son heard this and said to me, with a huge smile on his face, “Mom. You gotta be strong when you give someone something. Just say here you go. You gotta be tough about it.” Then he said in a wimpy voice meant to mimic me,” you can’t say stuff like, oh-I-hope-you-like-it-and-you-use-it. You have to be aggressive and say,”HERE. THIS IS YOUR GIFT. YOU’LL LOVE IT.”

Well alright then. I’ll try it.

This is the new me.


(at least I hope you do, and if you don’t, I’m sorry, I’ll have another one tomorrow)
