SummeR VacAtion At Its FineSt

Tukey: "Mom? Mom? Mommy..."

Me: "Hmmmmm?"

Tukey: "I'm hungry."

Me, burrowing my head deeper in the covers: "Mphwmph whazzeee timeizit?"

Tukey: "Mommy, I'm hungry, now!"

Me: "Mphmmmmm... ten minutes, OK?"

Tukey: "But Mommy, I'm STARVING!"

Me: "Tukey, honey... I was up till 2:30 in the morning. I'm tired. I was busy, doing work, and then googling people, like my ex-boyfriend, and some other people, and then I was surfing on some blogs. Honey, I'm sooooooo tired. Can't you let me have ten more minutes? Please honey? I promise I'll get up in a couple minutes and get you something to eat? Is your brother up? Can't he get you a bagel? Tell Ajers to get you a bagel and he can pour you some milk? Huh, honey? Puuuuhleeeease? I am soooooooo tired, baby."


Me: "Honey, please? OK? Just ten minutes....."




[Insert a dream where I discover I am pregnant and I'm the age I'm now and no one's happy for me cuz I'm 38 and they're all like, "are you crazy? What are you doing getting pregnant at your age" and I am wearing the EPT around my neck like a necklace waiting for people to ask me what it is so I can tell them I'm pregnant and they can tell me I'm stupid and crazy....]



R.E.M zone....



Tukey: "Mom?"

Me: "Yeah mzmzmphwmphhhhh?"

Tukey: "Mommy?"

Me: "What hon?"

Tukey: "Remember you said you'd get me some breakfast in ten minutes?"

Me: "Yes."

Tukey: "Well, can you come down now? It's been TWO HOURS!"


Andie said...

ha. that's classic.

especially since I was sitting here thinking, WOW! she had a dream in 10 minutes?

Hope you're having a good day!

10min = 2hrs! kids stand there until I get up.

Monnik said...

You have angelic kids. No way would mine have waited. You've trained them well.

Liane Spicer said...

That's me all right. I try to pinch a few extra minutes and next thing I know, it's midday.

You google ex-boyfriends too? I had to restrain myself after I decided it was kind of sick of me. Now I try not to do it at all. I googled my ex-husband, too. But that was just once.

Shauna said...

Tee-hee. This sounds strangely familiar. I love late nights, but hate the mornings.

No one warned me that when you have kids you'd have to feed them. I'm not talking bring-them-into-bed-and-breastfeed-them food. I'm talking drag your butt out of bed, crack an eyelid open and pour the milk and cereal. ;-)

Come on, doesn't everybody google exes??? I found out his wife sued some company for like $33,000 when she tried to get a tattoo of a bird removed from her shoulder, and it was botched. Classy chick he got a hold of!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

LOl too funny. My kids would also stay put. They know better;)))

Hope the writing is coming along with the non-fiction stuff as well as your latest fiction wip.

I missed blogger land. Don't know how you guys keep up. I never seem to have time to do anything lately.

How many weeks until school?????

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Kari--One month and two days! My kids start Aug. 20!!!!

Patricia said...

I had an ex boyfriend call for the first time in 20 years on Saturday. I'm gonna google him now, LOL!

Stephanie J. Blake said...

I'll admit that I have googled ex's, but I never find anything. What's that about?

Jenster said...

Ha!! Love the dream. And love the fact my youngest is old enough to make her own dang breakfast.

Tukey is CUTE!

TTQ said...

I don't just google, I check the property appraisers office, zaba search and the clerk of courts site. Interesting things I find...

XYZinn said...

I TOTALLY have dreams about my ex boyfriend all the time. I tried googling him, but I couldn't find anything. I did get his address though and went on google earth to see what his house looked like!!

Kim Rossi Stagliano said...

I just wrote a piece about mine for the New York Times.... I kid you not. And my husband has not proofed it. It will probably be the first piece of mine they take. And then my next one will be about my pending divorce! LOL! I had to get outside my comfort zone and outisde of autism in my writing. So I went to a parallel universe.... :)

la bellina mammina said...

Oh poor Tukey!

Frannie Farmer said...

That happened to me this morning too. Except they (the kids) were up until like 1:30am -- what the heck -- so when they decided to wake up at 7, I pulled them in tight and we all woke up at 9:30!!! Crazy!

xxxx said...

You walked around with your EPT as a necklace? HA HA HA.

Her kids are SO well-trained, everyone!

And duh, everyone googles exes!

This was soooo funny and could have been taken right out of my life. This is a classic scene played out frequently within my home. Isn't it a pain how those darn kids always want to be fed??
Thanks for giving me a very big laugh today!

ORION said...

That happens to me but the creatures that want food are cats...

Unknown said...

I never thought to google exes, but guess what I'm about to do! (I don't think one of them is smart enough to use the internet, but I could be wrong...)

Tukey is SO adorable! :) You have great kids.

By the way, we're crawling now! As of last night, it's official...

My kids are relentless. I used to get up early and write but, for some reason, they are both up at 5:30 now. Nothing stops the banging at my head except my feet physically touching the floor. Consequently, I now write at night.

You son listens way better than either of mine.
