Totally False Advertising

Omega texts me from the laundry room:

Why don't you ever wear this cute t-shirt Alpha and I made for you in daycare?

What t?

The one that says number one mommy?

Ah. Um. Because I don't want all the other mommies to feel bad?

Good answer. You are such a thoughtful person!

That's why I'm the number one mommy.

I know that's why I like you! That and the fact that you're a smartass.

Yeah, actually, now that I think about it, the smartass thing really does win out.

Hahahaha, wonderful answer!

LOL!

And, so now, really why? (I'll not tell...)

MizAngie said...

Aren't your girls teenagers? How long did you have them in daycare? Why would a tshirt over the age of, say, 5, still be in your laundryroom? And come to think of it, what's Omega doin' in the laundryroom? I thought she was allergic.

And lastly...y'all carry your cellphones around with you in the HOUSE??? That's crazy talk.

Hey we text all over our house. Gone are the years that I sprawled on the bottom steps to call upstairs to some wayward child to tell them dinner was ready. Texting is the greatest!!!

Blessings just stopping by from my blog walk. Hope life is treating your kind.

hmmmmmmmmm..... interesting response. It certainly another appoarch to saying without saying the reason.

LOL...Sadly, we don't text in our house. Still stuck with good old fashioned hollering back and forth. *hangs head in shame*

Great comeback, Jane! And thanks for swinging by my blog!

Sadly my answer would have been - "Because I weigh, um, 20 more pounds than I did when you were in kindergarten, you little shit."

Wow, you're good. I'm definitely not a fast-thinker on my feet kind of person. I would have said something like, "Well, because it's dirty...still."

Good thinking, Mom O' the Year!

I think they say things like that just to watch our reaction.

"Because there's a hole in it and now I am the number ten mommy...."
