Freezer Pop Lightsabers! This is what happens when the parents are more childish than the kids.
So, I’m at the corner store/pharmacy picking up a prescription with my 9-yr old in tow when he says he needs to go to the bathroom. The pharmacist tells me the bathrooms are behind the employee only door and to have him press “1, 2, 3, 4, pound” to get in. I do and then he goes to the door and I continue to talk to the pharmacist (the door is only 10 feet away – don’t be mom hating on me – these are funny stories!) . My son tells me, “Mom, its not working” as he does the pee-pee dance. I tell him press “1, 2, 3, 4, pound” so he dials 1, 2, 3, 4 and then bangs on the door. After the pharmacist and I stop rolling on the floor laughing I tell him, “NOT pound on the door . . . press 1, 2, 3, 4 hashtag!” Damn I’m old!
So I spent the day with me niece who is 5. She explained to me that, “Beer makes you strong. So does PE in school.” Okaaaaay. What exactly are Mom & Dad teaching her? Hmmmm.
Scene 30 – “Wrong Lyrics” – While listening to “Man Eater” by Hall & Oats at a restaurant the 8-yr-old starts singing “money’s not metal”. I finally realized he was trying to sing the line “mind over matter” but then I looked up the lyrics and he was actually close. The line is “money’s the matter.” Funny.
