There's no CRYING in baseball...


You're not really a GREAT mom until you get a note like this.  (At least his penmanship is improving...)

I bow to you Vodka Mom. While I was busy getting my first bikini was (please stop by Casa Hice for graphic details), YOU were pissing off your progeny.

You are the Queen.

AB HOME INTERIORS said...

HAHAHAHA What a great post. Stopping by from SITS to leave some bloggy love!

Moonlight Hollow Musings said...

Ouch! You act tough...but that hurts like hell, doesn't it?

Cry? And then a note?
You're the master!

Jan said...

Oh, ouch.

And his penmanship is certainly better than BOTH of my sons.

tamilyn said...

Hmmm, don't know if I should feel bad that he cried or be pissed that he is using guilt as a weapon-I always thought that was a Hermit Crab/Drama Queen move.

The Mother said...

That is the BEST note from a kid I have ever seen. Congratulations! You are my new hero!

cw2smom said...

YOU meanie!!! LOL! I'll tell you...I am taking some perverse pleasure in the fact that my 17 yr old is pregnant and that she's going to be a very YOUNG mother and I hope she has a kid that is at least half the pain in the ass she was to me!!!! :insert evil grin:: And...I will just get so much enjoyment out of hearing her complain about how they treat her...if of course GOD allows me to live long enough to experience such an exquisite moment or two! LOL! Blessings Dear! Lisa

Joanie M said...

your work, for today is done.

Chris @ Maugeritaville said...

Hey, once the kid's sarcasm comes back, it means he's over it.

Of course, you could come back at him with, "I didn't MAKE you cry, you CHOSE to cry."

Let him chew on that for a while.

Brenda Susan said...

Another writer in the family??

Irish Gumbo said...

Hey, you got a note! You must be inspirational! (high five):)

Mrs. D said...

Guilt is a low blow. My 6 year old is using it already. Kids are manipulative little beings, huh?

So, why'd you make him cry? Just for shits and giggles? Lol.

Eluciq said...

oh boy...well at least he can express his feelings in words...just like his mama!

and his penmanship is way more legible than my little monkey's!

Pastor Sharon said...

Ouch. . Definitely Mom of the year. . .that must have hurt. . .
You could say what my Daddy used to say: "Quit crying, or I'll give you something to cry about!"

blognut said...

Awww... why'd you go and do a thing like that?

Mad Texter said...

Ooooh, the grasshopper has surpassed the master.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Hold strong, mom! (At least he had the decency to write you a note. I just get lame texts.)

Yvonne said...

whatever DID you do? haha

Captain Dumbass said...

What does goob feel like?

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

My kids would totally leave me a note like that. Oh wait, they have.

Their battle cry? Why did you raise us to express ourselves if you didn't want to hear us express ourselves?

This IS The Fun Part! said...

SOMEbody has to set the boundries and then enforce the laws! We have all seen the kids with parents who let them run wild with no rules. They turn into Paris Hilton and/or Octomom!

If those little buggers find out you're taking guilt trips, you're in deep, deep trouble!!

The child WILL survive!

Zip n Tizzy said...

Man! That kid has guilt down!

AS Amber said...

I once got a note like this:

Dear Mom,
I hate you.
Love, Me

Really? Hate, then love?

Huh. Motherhood is such a freakin' blow to the ego.

Lola said...

I don't know how old he is, but at least he's communicating. And in writing no less!

Good job!

Michel said...

That's awesome!! He's commenting on your parenting skills. It's like you're LIVING a blog!

Jennifer said...

ROTFLMBO!!! This should be framed and hung up on your wall! Fantastic!

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday! Hope you enjoy your Friday!

tera said...

...and people wonder why I don't have kids...

Seriously, that is precious. You need to frame it!
(And his penmanship is better than mine is right now, so he should totally get a point for that.)

Rocksee said...

I'd send him a note back.. :) Just me.

WeaselMomma said...

Can I borrow that note to give to my kids????

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Ouch.

only a movie said...

I know that is heartbreaking, but are you up for hire? Because it would be nice if I could get someone else to make my kid cry...

Have a good weekend, VM

Tammy Howard said...

My hubs once got a note that said "I love you" but love was in the universal red circle with the line through it, indicating NOT.

dizzblnd said...

OUCH.. What could have possibly have done? Sad.. his writing is better than mine

Waterstone Jewelry said...

Oh well done! You know you've hit a home run when you get notes like that. OUch!

Candy's daily Dandy said...

GUILT, it's America's favorite past time.

Congrats on the dubious honor.

The Gaelic Wife said...

Okay, what'd you do?

The Peach Tart said...

Oh well this going on at such an early age, you have years of guilt ahead of you....he's already a master manipulator...I'd go in and tickle him

slouchy said...

so... what did you do? MEANIE.

Rick Daley said...

When my seven year old ("The Hall Monitor") was four, my wife did something to make him mad. He got a piece of paper and his crayons and wrote her a letter. She saved it, but I'm not sure where otherwise I'd transcribe it. Somehting like this" Mom u mad me mad. Ples dont mak me mad ani mur.

He even folded it and scribbled for an address and drew a square for a stamp.

kimmirich said...

awww, sorry. I think beginning with the tween years and going forward, every other sentence, spoken--ended by kiddo, was something to the effect, "oh, no, now thats's just bad parenting."

a mouthy irish woman? ridiculous! said...

yeah. i get the whole "remember when you were depressed and would scream at me "did you eat the last oreo?"...i love those reminders.

Awesome blog, btw. I'll be back!! (I love finding cool new blogs)

Gaston Studio said...

I LOVE when Tom Hanks said that in League of Our Own!

Poor baby, he needs to read you blog!

Frau said...

Cool my chances of Mother of the year just got better with you out of the race!

we_be_toys said...

Kids - they really know how to jump up and down on that last nerve.
Excellent quote from "A League of Their Own" - I paraphrase that one all the time!

Keyona said...

Good God, I needed that kind of laugh. You know that kind that sneaks up on you and you can't control..ahem. What I mean is, I'm sorry for the mean mean note. :o)

Marinka said...

Great job! I hope that you wrote back!

Kara said...

You need to submit this to Passive Agressive Notes. The kid has a gift.

Char said...

Then you're left to wear the guilt...whether it fits or NOT!

laughingwolf said...

feels good to smack em, no? :O lol

buffalodick said...

You're a mean drunk, Vodka Mom....HeeHeeHee...

RedCurlGirl said...

wow...that's just...you know you hit a chord there...

Melanie said...

Please reassure me that you are keeping this note to show future girlfriends.

Always Home and Uncool said...

I got my first "I hate Dad" note from my son last month. I shall always treasure it.

Laura said...

THANK GOD for our children. Without them, what the hell would we write about?????????

Expat mum said...

Wait until he's older - then you get them via your Facebook page about how you've embarrassed him so much ( by writing on his page when he left it up) that he can't go into school tomorrow. I also got another Facebook message the next day about how he had over-reacted :-) and was sorry. I'm still not sorry I wrote on his Facebook page tho - stupid friends of his, posting porn!

flutter said...

wow.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Damn. I guess you win the trophy of "meanest Mom" today, eh? I can send you mine. Though I might need it back before it can reach you...

SweetPeaSurry said...

Awww what a sad little note!

anymommy said...

I aspire to get a note like that someday. Fantastic.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Isn't that our #1 job as parents? Disappointing our children. I'm going to have to go back and check the manual.

Mango Girl said...

Gee ~ what on earth could you have said to shatter his little world?

Classic!

Vivienne said...

Holy shit! I thought I got the worst notes... the underlying condemnation and thinly veiled application of guilt are amazing. He is writing notes that are so ahead of the curve! Perhaps you can see if he is eligible to skip a few phases and move right into teenage angst and sass...?

Phil Bennett said...

I remember the first time my daughter told me to "Go to hell", I knew I was doing something right.

hahaha
