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!
