If before today I was in the running for "mother of the year" I'm not anymore. This afternoon we were leaving my mom's house in Flagstaff heading home after my brother's wedding weekend (which i will blog more about later!) and the following conversation ensued:
Robbie: "Mommy where's Tom?"
Me: "Oh crap! We forgot our freaking dog!"
We turn around and go to pick up the dog.
Robbie: "Hi Freaking Tom."
Me: Laughing and rolling eyes at Rob.
Robbie: "Mom, now you forgot your freaking car." (Margaret drove it home.)
In case you are wondering, I do realize that saying the word freaking in itself is not ladylike or even common good manners. So, now I have had to apologize to my child for using inappropriate words and explain to him why he can't say "freaking". Lovely...
(But it did provide a good laugh and some fodder for the blog)
