sorry - couldn't resist!
I hope you are having a wonderful Easter!
As usual, things are not going according to plan. Rather than have that quiet Easter dinner I mentioned last night - we are having friends over - in fact they should be arriving any minute. It actually works out well - because it got me off my butt and got the house pretty much cleaned. Note to self - invite folks over more often in order to get housework done....
But what I really wanted to share was the absolute disappointment my son had when he woke up to discover he didn't have an Easter basket. He's 15. He was totally shocked.
I know, I know. I'm a bad mom - especially since I have always done the Easter Baskets, etc. This year? Totally slipped my mind until late last night - when it was too late. I figured it wouldn't be a big deal.
He has informed me that this will be the Easter he remembers forever. (Note to self - Man-Child seems to be gifted in the "guilt department....." Well, he learned at the knee of the master)
I agree - it will be the Easter that will live in infamy.
Why? Because this morning I asked him why none of my comments on his FaceBook seem to be showing up. I make them and they are never there. I asked him if he was blocking me. He swore he wasn't. So I pushed.
Do you know what he's doing?
He's DELETING me! ME?!! His own mother! How dare he?
Do you know what his defense was? "Well, yeah. You're my mother." This doesn't fly. His friend's mothers comment - and he doesn't delete them.
I am crushed. I don't post embarrassing things. In fact, I don't comment often at all. But he deletes me! The one who carried him for nine months (in the Texas heat - thank you very much!). The one who gave birth to him. The one who has nurtured, loved, and spoiled him. The brat.
And that is why, I informed him, that he didn't get an Easter basket this year.
