For sale... 11 year old boy, one careful owner....  

Thursday, 23 April 2009

Cute smile, cheeky face, very affectionate, works hard at school...only catch...has BIG mouth and NO volume control....

Yep, its official, any takers, I'm done, Deion has mortally embarrassed me for the last time...

He had a hospital appointment yesterday, ENT...local (unfortunately) packed waiting room (even more unfortunately).

About an hour into our wait, Deion, out of the blue...pipes up..."Mum, did you have a bad dream last night"
"No, Dee, why do you ask?"

Stupid, stupid, stupid me for asking!!!

"Cos I heard you moaning"

You know where this is going don't you???

I am well aware at this point that the whole waiting room and all the staff, receptionist and the man delivering mail is listening intently.

"Shh, Dee, we'll talk later."
"Because I said so."
"Okay, I was just asking, cos I heard you laugh, then you moaned, and I think you accidental hit daddy too, cos he moaned..."

I am DYING at this point!

I am vaguely aware of Deion giving me my own tried and tested advice on how to deal with bad dreams, but I can't listen as I am too busy trying to crawl under my chair...

Note to self...soundproof bedroom...scrap that...separate bedrooms, may as well, cos I can guarantee Dave is NOT coming ANYWHERE near me until the children have all left home!!!

Also, find another easy is it to move out of the area completely???

    Ok I let me start by apologizing. My entire office just asked me why I am laughing so hard. Of course this story is just way too classic not to share. So you are now somewhat of a celebrity. At least in my office. Thanks for having the courage to share this story. I am starting my day with a laugh.

    Sally, I'm sorry to say this is priceless, but no reason to get all bothered about it.

    I mean come on, you have a small brood, most adults know the stork is a myth at this point. I know it's embarrassing, but I applaud the fact that you and your husband have what appears to be a healthy "relationship". Many are not so lucky after years of marriage.

    And it's not so bad if Deion puts it together, at least he won't find out in a room full of all his friends. That's what happened to me when I found out that taxes were only done once a year. And out loud I said "I wonder what my parents were doing all those sundays in their bedroom. Of course, bout 5 seconds after I said it, I figured it out to the great amusement of my friends.

    Oh, and P.S.:

    Please don't punish Dave, he didn't do anything wrong. I mean come on, if he's like most men he screws up enough on his own without blaming him for his children's Gawffaws. :)

    Oh, Sally! That is too funny. It reminds me of a time (unfortunately not that long ago) where my daughter was impatiently knocking on our door which was locked on a Sunday afternoon. I told her to wait for me in the family room, that I'd be there in a few minutes. Well...a couple minutes later I hear her outside the door asking, "Geesh....what's YOUR problem in there?" Nothing like an eavesdropping kid to be a buzzkill. :)

    OMGosh..that is TOO funny!!! I can totally see one of my kids doing that to me! Kids are so inquisitive that they just won't drop the subject, they gotta keep hounding you for information! I feel your embarassment! I agree with Riley Scott thankful that you have such a healthy relationship with your hubby...not every couple is that fortunate. :o)

    I kind of remember 11 year old boys! They take the cake, don't they! Wait until they are 16 and can figure out the moans and groans! LOL!

    Thanks for visiting my site, and I'll be back to yours too.

    Have a great day.

    If you're going to wait until all the kids leave home... That's going to be a L O N G wait girl! Gotta find another way.

    Love the story. Kids... thank goodness they're cute.

    Oh that's good. I needed a good laugh! Did he actually use the word "moaning?" Smart boy, at least he knows the lingo.
