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.

HERE. THIS IS MY BlOG. YOU’LL LOVE IT.

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