“Mom, where is the…?”

August 12, 2008

My bathroom was hot and steamy and I stepped into the shower. Peace, peace at last, and I couldnt get over how relaxed I was starting to feel. When just before I put my head under water, I heard my child beckoning me through the bathroom door. “Mom, where is the lunch meat?” I had to giggle to myself, I think I even muttered – seriously – under my breath. “Umm, in the fridge.” That is when, ready for this, the 15 year old stated “No, its not, I cant find it.”  I insisted it was in there and he quickly disappeared with a sigh.

For the rest of my shower, I didnt much relax, instead I pondered about how well I was doing as a mother. Fifteeen….fifteen years and he still cant find the lunch meat? How will he ever survive? Oh wait, I have a guess….HONEY, where is the lunch meat? Just one simple word change and he will survive. Phew.

How about you – can you find the lunch meat?

I promise I didnt touch a thing.

This is going on the list…the t-minus three years and counting list. The list of all the lessons I still have to teach! I cant do this to his wife…I must teach him to find things on his own. I must.

Hugs and hope you are having a great day!

    LMAO. DJ and I cracked up at this… I think that we are going to run into the same problem with Trey. We’ll say, “Go get your shoes… they’re in your room.” And 20 minutes later I go up to find him standing in the middle of the room twiddling his thumbs or something… or he’ll totally forget what he went up for in the first place. LOL. So funny 🙂

    It’s nice to know I’m not alone in my senility! What do you call it with teenage boys? I think it’s just testosterone brain. At times my hubby asks questions like that b/c he knows it means I’ll probably just give up and ask if he wants me to make him the sandwich – because it always tastes better when someone else makes it!

    This made my husband and I chuckle last night. I think he felt alittle of himself in this. I know I still go through it, I think the last incident was over a pair of nail clippers. Thanks for the smiles!!
