What Goes Around, Comes Around.

So today is D day (or should I say C day??).
The candle party has arrived.
I've spent the whole week scrubbing, disinfecting, making things spit spot shiny, just so that I can get a few extra credits to buy some silly candles. Is my house that dirty you ask? Um, I have a ten year old BOY...yes, yes it is.

Last night I pulled down the punch bowl and proceeded to put my ingredients on the table for the margarita fest we will be having. I plan on making ALOT of margarita's.

In trots my son. He scans the table, notices the gargantuan bottle of tequila and looks up at me with raised eyebrows, "What are you guys drinking at the party MOMMMMM?"

Explain to me how a ten year old boy can manage to turn into my father in one second flat? Was this the result of the curse my parents spewed at me several times during my puberty? You know the one where they say, "I hope one day you have children Just. Like. YOU!". I figured when I turned 21 and had my own child and lived in my own home, I didn't have to listen to the voice of judgment anymore.

Evidently I was wrong.

So while several grown ladies are getting tipsy and buying candle sticks they don't need but the liquor god approves of, my son, the moral police, will be watching on with the disapproving eyes of my father.

Mind you, this is the same boy that decided streaking his sitter sounded like a fine idea...

But that's ok though, cause I know...one day he will have children Just. Like. HIM.

That is too funny, the streaker thing. All of a sudden my mind goes back to that song of yesteryear....Oh yes, they call him the streak, lookatthat, lookatthat. So it wasn't great music, it was funny.

Let's see. He's 10, the sitter is 15? In three more years she will have that story to hold over his head. Is he going to be embarrassed when you mention it then? SO, YOU will have that little card tucked away, and you'll probably need it. My Nyssa did her streaking, out the front door of the house as well, but she was just 4. Boy, they are slippery as babies and still slippery when wet at 4; she just got right past me.

he he, you will have the last laugh eventually. Until then, just get all grown up on him & say it's an adult thing, and he couldn't understand. It really annoys kids when you say that to them;-)

Don't worry, in 20 years when he's calling you about something his kid did you can just laugh and laugh....

Don't you love how kids know what is best. That was a really funny post. Your boy cracks me up! I hope your party went well and you got all those ladies slobbering drunk and sold bunches of candles.

Unfortunately, that curse does work. My mom said it to me, and I got Kal, who is me with testosterone, less 20 years! I said it to Kal when he was a kid, and he got The Girl, who is so much like him, it's like him raising me!

As far as them growing into your father? Yeah, they do that, too. I think Kal was parental at six and BG at four. Wait til your short man gets to be twenty...he'll patronizingly pat you on the head and offer you a dribble cup every time you open your mouth!

Now we know why animal eat their young, huh?
