Mother of The Year  
Is an award that I will not be receiving anytime soon.

Nolan woke me at 6:00 this morning, informing me that he had to go to Nebraska this week. Today. Til Thursday. Which, ordinarily, would have me doing a little 'alone time' dance.

Not so, this morning.

After trying to find a sitter for most of the day, it became apparent that I would have to take my sons with me to rehearsal for The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, wherin (in case you aren't a faithful reader of this journal) I play a whore.

Luckily, they were spared seeing any of the real Graphic numbers. For today, anyway.

Two things, though: 1)Ethan asked, "Mommy? What was going on before Mr. Jason (Melvin P. Thorpe) came onstage?" (Answer I did not give? Sounds of the throes of passion. *facepalm*)
2) He was singing "Texas has a bleephouse in it! Lord have mercy on our souls!" at the top of his lungs on the way home. Please do not call social services. I really do try to be a good mother.

At least he has the good sense not to say the word 'whore.' Let's hope he doesn't let it slip at school.

Aaron? Fell asleep about an hour before we were done. I'm going to be grateful that he didn't see the whorehouse number, instead of taking it as a personal comment on the acting.

Yeah? I still feel crappy for making them stay up til 10:15. They're going to be DYING tomorrow.

Eep. Well, they were bound to learn of, er, certain things eventually. Might as well be from you...

Oh dear *pats* You can only hope that by the time he knows what those sounds are for that he's forgotten this experience ;)

Ha! Your mothering skills still seem up to par if you ask me! That's probably something I'd just take Aislynn to see & call it a cultural learning experience. I took her to the movies In Bruges & Slumdog Millionaire (twice), we went to see The Full Monty (play).... Yeah. I think you're awesome!!

You shoulda called ME!   ;D

It's OK. You are still teaching them how to live as decent citizens. This was just an adventure. They will look back on it as their Mum did what she had to do, and still made things work for the best for them.   *nod*

*pats Katie-Bell*   x)
