how to dispose of a sticker..

being raised in the foam household:

a few months ago foam finds a white sticker on which a little message is written in bold black letters . under the words there is an arrow that points downward. the sticker is stuck to the edge of the table. she wonders where said sticker comes from when she remembers that some kind of battery operated toy was very recently purchased, unpacked and assembled by the youngest human inhabitant in the house - the 9 year old. of course, typical for the foam household cleaning up after oneself obviously means sticking and putting stuff

foam grabs the sticker and is about to impatiently holler for her 9 year old when the 15 year old son walks by. foam looks at the sticker which is laying flat in the palm of her hand. her eyes twinkle
mischievously. she slyly glances at her son and realizes she has a means of disposing of the annoying sticker. with the sticky side facing away from her hand she looks at her 15 year old's unadorned t-shirt. Without further ado she plops that sticker onto the middle of her son's t-shirt. 15 year old son glances downward and sees a sticker with a bold arrow pointing toward his britches area. the sticker has this message to convey:


15 year old rolls his eyes, sighs then smirks, pulls off the sticker while saying:
"this is just wrong".
he keeps on walking, looks back. shakes his head and smiles..

i got rid of that sticker..

Tonight in the car I was teasing the kids and made up a little rap song- the end went:
"Stay away from me
'Cause yo mamma is a...shovel"

(but the word that should have been there was 'ho)

Both of my kids rolled their eyes and groaned-
Sigh :)
Then we all laughed for about 15 minutes and their dad said he wanted to run away...
/t is right :)
Have a good weekend~ :D

humour ~ a necessary ingredient for all parents. irreverence is good sometimes, too. one certainly needs to learn to laugh lightly at oneself, huh?

Aunty Belle said...

One of those sparkly moments between a mama and her man-chile'. Wonderful post!

just me said...

Wonderful. Laughter keeps a mother sane. Isn't it wonderful when you're kids think you're immature?

foam said...

little lamb, mantissa, belle and just me,
yes laughter and humor ...
and not taking yourself too seriously.
i need to be like that more often.
just me....and thanks for dropping by.
