I Know I Shouldn't Complain BUT...

To my lovely son, who will be 13 in less than a month and is insecently reminding me of this fact all.the.time., I would like to just gently remind you of a couple things:

1. When you do the dishes, you must try to do remember the dishes on the counter and around the sink, and not just IN the sink. I'm sure there is room for them all since you started the dishwasher with 13 forks, 6 glasses, 4 plates and 2 pieces of tupperware.

Oh wait...must remember... It COULD be WORSE.

2. Even though there are exactly 3 squares of toilet paper left on the roll, you most certainly DID finish the roll. Technically you should replace it.

I know...It COULD be WORSE.

3. When I remind you to transfer your laundry, I don't think what I'm saying is, "Please take my clothes out of the dryer, wad them into a ball, and cram them between the counter and cabinet where there is no hope for removing the wrinkles." No...I don't think I'm saying that at all.

Bless your heart... It COULD be SO MUCH WORSE.



However, I will embrace him when need be and encourage him to be what he wants. I will embrace his uniqueness...and threaten to kick him in the junk if he ever comes home with even a drawing of him looking like one of these.

I will frankly now have nightmares for a week because of these images.

Hey Grandy, dropping by from Adgitize, have a lovely day! :):):)

I hear ya, with a soon to be 13 year old son of my own!

BTW, do those three gentleman think that's attractive?

I'm sure all these boys are very nice and polite. They probably do replace the toilet paper when they use the last of it. If you really want to know what could be worse your son could grow up to be a Madoff or CEO of a car company or bank. Now that would be horrible. I seriously doubt any of those mentioned would replace a roll of toilet paper, they might ask the government to do it for them but I'm sure they wouldn't do it themselves.

Wow. A teenager, soon to be. These must be exciting times!

I once dyed my hair green on Mother's Day. I was 15. My Mom was as happy as you can imagine she was. At least I didn't tattoo my face.

Mariuca~ Hey there girl!!

Suzanne~ I think they might, but their mates might look the same.

Jen~ I am sure those CEO's don't replace the toilet paper either.

Sandy~ My bad. Don't let the little one look.
