How To Tell If I Need A Government Bailout

brianfootball shirtHigh school football practice has started.  Last night the front door opens with:

“Hi Mom.”


“Mom – I’m starving!”

“Hi Mrs. Brian’s Mom!”

“Hi George…”

“Brian said you fixed dinner?”

“Yes George I did – are you hungry? – hi Daniel”

“Hi Mrs. Brian’s mom.”

“I suppose you are hungry too?”

“Yes please!”

“Mom – we are so hungry we could eat everything!”

Why does this not shock me?

Is there a government bail out for the people who feed 6′ tall freshman boys?  Let me know where to write.  I’m on it.

Until next time-

    Hi Catherine,

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now. You started following me on Twitter (I’m @DebraWeiss) so that’s how I found your blog. I love your humorous take on living with a teenage boy. Your posts always make me smile. :)

    – Debbie

    I feel you, my husband and I have 6 boys and live about 500 miles from our families. Sometimes I fantasize about hijacking a Safeway truck as it passes me by on the freeway. I think I live at that supermarket and they should give me one of those honorary plaques on the wall with my photo and title, shopper of the century. We eat a lot of chicken and hamburger girl! Go move in with him when your 80 and make up for it all.

    Yes, and you happen to be the bailout for the other moms.
