A Mother's Revenge

I must remember that my mother is one smart lady. And she always warned me that what goes around, comes around... and all those other wonderful sayings...

I was on my way to Walmart on Tuesday when I called Mamaw. I told her that Tot was going to be allowed a $3 to $5 toy since it was his birthday. She remembered we had bought Tot a new bike and suggested a bike horn. (Most of you can see where this is going already can't you?). I thought it was a great idea. When we made it to the toy / bike section, I showed him the bike horns. There were two. A cute little one and the big honk the black bulb one. Yaa. I have a boy. We got the noisy one. He also asked if this brother could have one. Why not, it was only $3.

I think my brain shut off about that time. Self preservation? He wanted it as we finished our shopping. I let him have it. Not the smartest move. He beeped that horn all through the store. He had the biggest grin and was enjoying himself. Yaa... it was his birthday, why not?

At some point he was right behind me with it pointed to my rear as he beeped it. I stopped to ask him what he was doing. There was a man standing about 5 feet away, we made eye contact and he had a smile on his face. I'm sure he heard this conversation:

Mom: What are you doing?
Tot: Beeping your butt!!! Beep Beep
Mom: *blink* **why did I bother to ask this?**

The gentleman just about lost it when he heard the response. I saw him turn and walk away while trying not to laugh out loud.

Some days I just wonder where my brain went???

I used to have a notice up at my telephone - "Ensure brain is engaged before engaging mouth." Sounds like you could use a modified version sometimes for dealing with the kids ....

Thank goodness that he didn't notice MASSachusetts. (he had to spell that for me by the way) Now, of course, he knows the joke.
