The perfect job

I have been blessed with the perfect job for the last 9 months.

I absolutely love it!

I love going into work every day. I love the people I work with…they keep me laughing daily. But most importantly, I have a boss who respects me yet challenges me at the same time.

So you can imagine my excitement when Gibson, my eight year old, came home and told me that they were “applying for jobs” in his classroom. On the day of his interview, he actually showered before school, doused himself with AXE and wore a tie because he wanted to look his best.

As a part of this process, he had to fill out a job application and then wait to hear if he got the job he applied for. He brought his application home and in typical Gibby fashion, it made me laugh.

Here is what it said…

#1 job choice: Librarian
Why do I think I would be good for this job?: Because I like books and I like to read (I’m not gonna lie, this made me proud)

#2 job choice: Hall Monitor
Why do I think I would be good for this job? Because I know where everybody is supposed to be (translate: he loves to tell people what to do)

But my favorite job choice was his number three choice…

#3 job choice: Substitute Teacher
Why do I think I would be good for this job? Because I have lots of skills.

This made me literally laugh out loud! He definitely does not lack for confidence.

I love that boy!

Is a Kiss just a Kiss?

One of my favorite past times is kissing. I love it! With the right person, in the right environment, it can be an awesome experience.

In fact, this is what I think most women visualize when they kiss someone they really like….

And this is what I think most men visualize when they are in the middle of a make out session…

But in reality, this is probably more what most people look like when they are in the middle of a make out session…

Don’t cringe, laugh or judge, you know I’m right. Have you ever unexpectedly seen a couple kissing passionately in public?

I'm sexy and I know it

Being in Cabo for six days without my kids was both awesome and difficult. I love Cabo and really needed to get away, but I missed my kids too. I’m ok being away from my kids when I’m less than 2-3 hours away, but the thought of being at least 12 hours from being able to be near them in an emergency, was very difficult for me.

Needless to say, I’m glad to be home.

As you all know, I played hookey from work and they played hookey from school yesterday so that we could spend some good quality time together. Shhh, don’t tell their teachers. As far as the schools are concerned, they were both “a little under the weather.” We spent a good portion of the day at our local sports center playing basketball, dodgeball, and flipping in the foam pit.

We had a blast.

On our way home we were all tired and listening to the local “pop” music station. I hate this kind of music, but it’s all the rage with kids…and by kids I mean those ages 10-15 as well as single adults from the ages of 35-50 who are trying to be hip.

But I digress…

Anyway, the song “I’m Sexy and I know it” by LMFAO was on the radio. I have to be honest and tell you that I have never actually listened to the words of the song until Hamilton, my 10 year old, asked me the following question.

Hamilton: Mom, what does he mean when he says “I have passion in my pants and I’m not afraid to show it?"

Me: (thinking to myself) Oh shit, I don’t want to have this conversation now, he’s only 10.

Hamilton: Mom, did you hear me?

Me: (trying to buy some time) No, what was your question again?

Hamilton: What does this song mean when he says “I have passion in my pants and I’m not afraid to show it”?

Me: What do you think he means?

Hamilton: I think that maybe it’s just that he likes to dance.

Me: That’s exactly what he means.

Gibson (my 8 year old): No, I think it means something TOTALLY different (emphasis on totally).

Me: Oh yeah Gibson, what do you think he means?

Gibson: I think he is talking about that part in the movie that Hamilton watched at school (you know the “sex” movie that all 5th graders watch in school) when they talk about the boys and their “reactions”

Me: (a little perplexed) What do you mean “reaction”?

Gibson: Don’t make me say it!

Me: I don’t know what you are talking about when you say “reaction”

Gibson: You know mom, when boys get boners.

Me: No! I don’t think that is what they are talking about at all! It’s definitely all about dancing.

Hamilton: (completely embarrassed that the conversation has moved from dancing to “erections”) yeah, let’s just stick with the dancing!

…and scene! That, my friends is just a little bit of my life in the past 24 hours with 2 boys.

Don’t hate me!

Adult Time Out

I've been here...

...taking a much needed adult time out.

It's now Monday morning and I am back to reality. Guess what I'm doing my first day back?

Yep, I'm playing hookey with these guys...

Shhhhhhhh....don't tell their schools. Last time we did this I got in trouble!

I will be back later in the week with some great blog posts.
