Thing 1

It’s a huge milestone for a mother

Guess what LilZ asked me to do this week? Come on…guess. He asked me to serve refreshments at his upcoming school dance. As in…he has no problem with me being at the school dance. He doesn’t think I’m too embarrassing to ask to help out. He has no fear of the pain I could inflict by attending such an event. He’s not worried I’ll bring along naked pictures (of him, not me) or tell embarrassing stories. He’s even grateful I’ll do it because evidently there’s some sort of drama and if they don’t get enough volunteers something tragic will happen. Like, no music, or something. Either way – he actually thought I’d say no. He had no idea I would consider this such an honor that I might cry a little at the excitement.

My son! He’s not ashamed of me!

Unless, of course, he’s not planning on telling anyone he knows me. Which could be the case. And would probably be smart, now that I think about it.

  1. Will you be bringing your ruler to measure the distance between the couples dancing?

    Man, I wish my daughter would just let me walk into her highschool and see where her locker is. I’m not permitted to get out of my car in the carpool lane. But then she’s 16.

  2. I’m so impressed.

    My stepdaughter always checks my teeth for lipstick before I see anyone she knows. She has such faith in me.

  3. Wow…I’m pretty much expecting my son to boot me out of his life the minute we hit the doors of her first pre-K day. 😉

  4. Enjoy it, hon. Mine are 13 and almost-16 and are working to get me not only out of their classrooms but into another galaxy.

  5. Ha Ha, “refeshments”… Jager bombs are refreshing!

    Just don’t do him any “favors” by teaching him swing dance moves and telling him that you’ll style his hair!!
