Despite chaos ensuing due to bathroom demolition, a last-minute decision to go out of town this weekend (which I’m frantically preparing for) and what should have been an easy Trend Micro renewal turning into a horror show that took both of my computers down for hours, I managed to get a post up at Romancing the Blog.
Conversation with the Tall Kid this morning:
TK: Mom, why is there an Encyclopedia of Serial Killers on the coffee table?
TK: Women want to marry serial killers?
Mom: They’re the villains, not the heroes, dummy.
TK: There are villains in romances?
Mom: Could you be any more like your father?
TK: Sure, if you want me to.
Mom: Never mind.
TK: It’s just creepy. M—‘s mom has decorating magazines on her coffee table.
Mom: Martha Stewart, Martha Woods…what’s the difference?
TK: Who’s Martha Woods?
Mom: She killed a bunch of kids from the 40’s to 60’s.
TK: Creepy. I’m going to read normal stuff on Wikipedia.
Mom: If you bring me another article on how to more effectively clean house, you’re grounded.
That puts Martha Stewart in such an interesting light!
:popcorn: LOL now my oldest would take the book and read it.
My mama had a bloody ear nailed to the wall of her home office with a note attached to it from Theo Van Gogh to his brother Vincent to pick up after himself. The TK is LUCKY. Try explaining THAT to your friends!
:lmao: why are your conversations with your kids infinitely more funny than my conversations with my kids?
Me: clean your room and get dressed
either older child: why?
Me: because we are having people come through to see the house today
Me: because we’re not going to be living here anymore, we’re moving, remember?
dd: do we know them?
Me: (sigh) No – just go do what I asked
ds: if we don’t know them why do we have to clean?
me: Because I said so. Go. ARGH
