Yesterday, I decided to play a little game of naming the five words I hoped my children would use to describe me here: MYSUESTORIES: STOP!!! THIEF!!!!!
But that wasn't enough. I had to then go ahead and name the five words my children would probably use to describe me.
Still not enough.
I went ahead and actually asked my eighteen year old sloth what five words he would actually use to describe me.
These are his answers.
1. Naggy. I prefer to think he meant to say "inspiring", as in "Mom, stop "inspiring" me to clean my room.
2. Lovable. Meaning? I still haven't killed him yet for puking all over the den twelve years ago.
Or my bed eight years ago. Or the bathroom floor two weeks ago.
3. Old. As in more than 25, but less than 75, at which point he would probably classify me as ancient.
4. Happy. Apparently he was not looking at me and my reaction to #3 when he blurted this one out.
5. Awesome. This one came out when he finally registered my look from answer #3. But that I can live with.
And apparently I have raised a child with a very useful life skill. He can bullshit his way out of a paper bag when necessary.
And that, dear reader? Is Awesome. In a naggy, lovable, old, yet happy kinda way.
