First Post Friday

OK Deb....I'm here for you. I will pull out my first (ok, actually my second) post so you can see if I have grown or anything in the last few months. While I envy your weekend alone (seriously, I wish I was there with you), I would like to think that I would spend a weekend alone doing something besides reading blogs. Aw crap....we all know better....that is EXACTLY what I would be doing. So here we go....this is a flash back to 4 or 5 months ago.

boardwalk fighting

ooohhhh ok, so I want to talk about "those" people and their embarrassing kids. You know who Im talking about....the ones with the kids who are loud and fight in public. No matter what the parents try to do, the kids really seem like they are running the show. We have all seen these kids while we were out shopping or at an amusement park or maybe on tv. Well, this past summer two of "those" kids were riding amusement rides at the Jersey Shore. Oh boy, that little one was spunky....he and his older brother were riding in the backseat of a kiddie boat and they were fighting over who would ring the bell. You would think that the bigger one would win the fight, but that little guy gave him a run for his money....he was screaming, hitting and pulling hair while his brother screamed and hit back. I just knew one of those little terrors were going to fall out of that boat. Everyone around the whole kiddie ride were watching these two to see how bad it was going to get...and did I mention their mom? She was screaming at the top of her lungs, desperate to get them to stop fighting but unable to reach them because they were floating on this kiddie boat ride. And the father, he was beside himself....totally embarrassed and mad beyond mad. People were pointing and laughing, all watching those boys with that "glad they're not my kids" look.....oh yeah, it was something to see.....and did I mention they were my beautiful, normally well-behaved boys? See, it can happen to any of us....and by the way, my DH is still mortified. Wish me luck getting him back to the Jersey Shore.

So was it? Now go see Deb and show her your first post.

LOL I totally was not expecting them to be your sons!!! I wish more parents gave that "It happens to all of us" look to moms and dads when their kids did that. Rather than the "My kids will not ever!!!" look. Hooray for you getting through it! lol

It was great! I loved it. Isn't this first post thing great?

So did hubby ever recover? Our son was an only - he waited until later to pull his stunts.

The words you never want to hear on the phone: "This is the Sheriff's Department, do you have a son named X and do you own a farm on county rd xx?" Yes, why? "Because evidently your son hosted a party and we want to know what you want us to do with the 200 kids in your corn field?"

My worst moments were when the boys were toddlers-- only a year apart- and every stinkin time we went to a playground they would throw a fit when we'd leave. It wouldn't matter how sweet they were while we were there or how long we were there. Good to know I wasn't alone! BAHAHAHAHAHA
