Even the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots take a break once in a while.


I was working on my column last night when Golden Boy plopped down on the coach with a loud sigh.


“I’m sad Sassy’s leaving for college soon. I actually LIKE her now.”



I looked at him, “That’s because we’ve been gone for five days. Don’t you worry, by the time she leaves next week you’ll hate her more than ever.”



“You’re probly right. Thanks, Mom.”



“Don’t mention it. Now get downstairs and start pissing her off.”



A mother's job is never done...

LMBO - that's hilarious! HA! I've missed getting to chat with you - how was your trip to NY? Big hugs! :o)

Michele said...

The house is going to be pretty quiet and lonely when both the girls are away at college....for all of 5 minutes. Then you will bask in the glory that is "alone" time.

Gigi said...

How funny! Yeah, I'm sure he'll be ready for her to go next week.

Scope said...

Somehow, let him think that when she goes, he gets her room. Let him start planning and plotting now.

That should provide for fireworks.

Snappy Di said...

HA... yep, that's what siblings are for. To piss each other off.

Sage advice! Nothing like getting pissed off with somebody to miss them just a little less. What a great mom you are!

WebSavvyMom said...

-->You look great and skinny in the BlogHer pictures. Love the advice to GB too.

As Cape Cod Turns said...

Bwahahaha.
Good luck today!

NadiaEcho said...

Hmph, why are you encouraging him?! Moms are so annoying...

Anyways, super funny! Siblings, you only like 'em when they're away. FAR away...

I love to see when anxiety can be dealt with in such a quick and loving way.

Thanks for the great belly laugh!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

So funny. And so true!

SkylersDad said...

I think everyone in the house should start openly talking about what each one wants to do with her room.

You are such a funny lady! Hmmm, I just realized your girls are "Sassy" and "Bitchy" while the boy is "Golden Boy"! Interesting, very interesting! Of course, he isn't a teen-ager yet either! :)

K. Harrington said...

Oh siblings! That gave me a laugh.

you're an inspiration.

Having our oldest away at school definitely changes the tenor of the household. The other two can hate on each other louder and in more despicable ways.

Elizabeth said...

I always say a brother is a best friend and enemy for life... though I'm still having to do butt checks after poops so I can't even imagine one leaving for college!

Alana, Author of Domestically Challenged said...

LOVE this - and so darn true! You've done your job well...lol

Missy said...

LOL! So true...

A Mom on Spin said...

Yeah. . . I kind of like mine five minutes before they leave too!

Diane J. said...

Oh you are way too funny. Love it.

Mo Diva said...

ah! little brothers!
Mine is a little shit but i still love the little twerp.. technically hes taller than me and i would never call him a twerp to his face... maybe an asshole... but i love him.

They grow up so fast!

大陸包二奶問題對台商家庭是一種重大衝擊,

入行多年,很多人一聽我是個女子偵探,總難免好奇的詢問。
其實會當起女子偵探也是誤打誤撞;
當初老公外遇我求助無門,找上徵信社,
但是面對男性徵信人員,許多話總難以啟齒。
後來我離婚了,卻當了女子偵探
因為我知道很多人面對女子偵探總是會比較安心;
每當聽見客戶的委屈,我總想起當初的自己,
能夠幫客戶解決問題,很多時候真的不僅僅是成就感而已,
更多了助人的快樂。現在我也有了論及婚嫁的男友,
他也很贊成我女子偵探的工作,現在我不僅更有自信,
也更懂得如何保鮮即將到來的婚姻生活!

男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚
外遇情人面前,他可以享受著年輕戀愛般的美好
在回歸家庭時刻,他可以享受著老婆對他無微不至的照顧
在同事朋友面前,他可以享受著眾人對他的忌妒與羨慕
男人有了外遇,但是他不想離婚,他只想自私的擁有一切

你想要離婚,卻不顧多年夫妻的情份。
我知道,是因為你有了外遇。
你寧願把錢滿足她所有慾望,卻不願意多給贍養費!
難道真的要抓姦你才會付出你所應該付出的?
其實我真的不願意去抓姦的,我不願意看到她占據屬於我的位置,
然而如果不抓姦,我就無法拿到我應得的權益!
或許是想要報復吧,或許真的心灰了,
或許我想要看看被抓姦的你們驚慌失措的面孔,
我鼓起了勇氣,打了徵信社的電話:我要抓姦

曾經你也愛她的一切,如今卻因為有了婚外情,一切都變成了缺點。
婚外情甜蜜嗎?
因為少了柴米油鹽的破壞,所以婚外情份外浪漫!
婚外情有趣嗎?
因為時間極其寶貴不夠深刻了解對方,所以婚外情份外新鮮!

兒子交了個女友,我和老伴都不是很喜歡;
豐富社會歷練的我們一眼就看出這女生不如表現的單純,
但是兒子卻總是認為我們想太多。
朋友提議不如做婚前徵信調查看看,
希望兒子不要被騙,於是我們決定私下做婚前徵信
婚前徵信的結果才發現原來女方不僅交友複雜、晚上更做傳播兼差!
兒子看了婚前徵信的報告之後,才知道原來女友的乖巧全都是假象;
兒子說幸好有我們有做婚前徵信,不然等結婚之後才發現,一定又是一段不幸福的婚姻!

妹妹進了徵信社工作,說實在的當初家人超反對,深怕妹妹學壞!
然而三年過去了,常常聽妹妹提起徵信社的事情,
其實我才發現,有只想坑錢的業者,當然也有值得信賴的徵信社
而且之前親戚還因為要做個人情,委託妹妹做婚前徵信,
這才知道對方根本就是愛情騙子!
現在大家都知道我有個在徵信社工作的妹妹,
親戚朋友不管外遇抓姦離婚還是各種問題,
都會請妹妹的徵信社幫忙,
我們笑說:有個在徵信社工作的家人,
任何居心不良的人絕對無所遁形!

離婚變成極可能的選項,您該怎樣維護自身權益?
想要離婚,夫妻財產怎麼分配?
想要離婚,我可以拿到贍養費嗎?
想要離婚,子女監護權會屬於誰?

離婚往往是撕破臉的局面,不要奢望對方還會為您設想!
讓專家幫您解決問題,幫助您拿到屬於的一切、漂亮離婚

Great post. You have a great sense of humor combined with great wisdom. Loved it as I did your account of your trip to New York.
