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. wordnerd – I'm a proper southern, conservative gal, raised in the south, graduated from LSU...married with a couple of really neat kids... The quote that best represents me and my value system? "Some people are like Slinkies. . . not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs."

    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.

  4. You guys seem to have the best relationship. Parenting is hard, but you seem to be doing a wonderful job!

  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!!
