Teaching Your Son What *Not* To Say To a Lady

Aaaahhhh...the good old days. That is my silly but adorable son when he was in 1st grade! But that has turned into this...

...goofy preteen with just enough photo editing skillz to create disturbing pics. LOL! :)

He is quite fond of joking around and really does make us laugh quite often. But he is still in the process of learning which jokes are appropriate and which jokes go too far.

We were getting our fave "fast" food - Chipotle {yum} - about a week ago. As we were getting our utensils, etc., son said something to me.

"Mom, you know, you look sooooooo old."

After I regained consciousness, I didn't quite know what to say, but my son quickly smiled, laughed and told me he was just joking. In true "girl" fashion, I obsessively questioned him all the way back to the car.

What made you say that?
Did something about how I looked or what I was wearing make you think up that comment?
Have you always thought that?
Do I really look old?
Are you embarrassed to be seen with me?

He assured me that the only reason he said it was because he knew it would bug me. Nice. Now the whole thing didn't really bother me - I mean, obviously I forgot all about it and never wrote a blog post about it or anything. *ahem*

Okay, truly I laughed, BUT I had a talk with him explaining that this is *not* the sort of thing that a man of any age should say to any lady. And most especially, he should never say such a thing - no matter how well he thinks the joke will be handled - to his future wife!! :)

Got any kid quotes that have made you shake your head lately?

Enjoy the everyday moments - subscribe here to stop and smell the chocolates with me!

Have a fabulous day friends!  :)


  1. Yeah, so I would have been questioning him the whole way to the car too. LOL! I'm already pretty paranoid about the grays that are popping out all over my head.
    Let's see as you know my son is just a walking goofball and one of the things he'll do is, he'll out of now where start chanting "Boots and Pants, Boots and Pants, Boots and Pants". Yeah......

    Big you can take the something out of the someplace but you can't do, uh, never mind size hugs to you.
    LOVE YA!

  2. Uh oh...yep, that's definitely on "the list". His pic of his eyes up there...I thought he was really doing that!! Apparently I didn't look close enough. LOL Great skills there!

    And for the record, I don't even think you look old enough to have a teenage child!!!! I mean that!
