Here Is A Method For Letting Your Child Live To Be 18

Dear Lord,

Why is it that in the morning when I ask my son to hurry and put on his shoes for the 20th time, he says (and I quote),

“Mom, you are stressing me out, what is the hurry?”

( I’ll take getting to school on time for a hundred Bob)

But if (God forbid) I am 30 seconds late picking him up from school, he says (and I quote),

“Mom. you are stressing me out, can’t you get anywhere on time?!”

I need an interpreter.Β  Please send one NOW.

And in return, I will let my son live to be 18.

Thank you.


Brian’s mom

Until next time-

    Well Cath, He’s a teenage guy. And like all of us guys, he’s very complex πŸ˜‰ It’s best if you just accept us as we are so your pretty red hair doesn’t turn gray from worry.

    Wow…look …it’s the really cute guy stopping by and leaving a comment. I think I should write down this date and time… πŸ˜‰

    Have been there – have done that – and mine ain’t teenager any more :-)

    Btw: I’ve voted for you at Santa’s Blog of The Day, just to give you a head start and because I love your style.

    HAHA. I’m here quite a bit, just prefer to stand in the back of the room and watch. But every now and then I have to stick up for Brian :-)

    Hey Catherine, I noticed your blog on the list of nominations for Santa’s Blog Of The Day, and I’m so happy I did. Because now I’ve found another great blog to read. This post is hilarious. And how I remember those days…Another thing I love about children is whatever is yours is also theirs, and whatever is theirs is theirs…

    Great material and wonderful blog~

    This applies to girls too and it sounds all too familiar to me. I figure once they have kids of their own we might get a rest…but then they’ll ask us to babysit. πŸ˜‰

    Many of my friends have daughters and I am always so impressed that they can get their girls to any event on time. Their clothing changes …OIY!

    I stumbled upon you coming from Charlotte’s (Army Mom) website and have to say, you’re a fast favorite of mine. As a redhead with twin boys (11), this has to be a classic I share, you’ve captured it nicely … even if it does remind me of the screech of nails across the chalkboard. πŸ˜€
