Help me

You know your kids aren't quite the same as others when...

Your elder daughter rings you and says " Mummy, I've just been to Asda and they had no pesto and when I came out there was a man weeing just outside the shop. What kind of a place doesn't sell pesto?"

And in another supermarket, in another town, your son says in a proud and happpy voice "Oh God that's brilliant, a free glass with the Budweiser, that means me and Johnny have the same glass, how good is that?"

So I have a daughter who doesn't gee her ginger at men weeing in the street and a son in the throes of a bromance.

Help me, Lucy Abigail, you're my only hope.

"Gee her ginger"? Did you just make that phrase up? :O)

Autumn Mist said...

Absolutely brilliant (about the pesto, I mean!) You should be a very proud mummy!

Ayak said...

They sound quite normal to me...better than mine at that age.

Oh and by the way I awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award. If you pop over to mine you'll have to scroll down a bit as I've done a couple of posts since that one. Sorry...I should have mentioned it here before.

No pesto?! Dear God, is she living in some kind of Dickensian nightmare?

Nickie O'Hara said...

I am laughing so much at this - thanks for cheering me up :)

Nota Bene said...

You are beyond help. Or at least your children are!

Sueann said...

My children are like that in Asda - TERRIFIED in fact! Can't find anything they want....pesto included - it's my daughter's favourite thing in the world. Lx

I can't even follow the comments of my teens. The texts from the Queenager are all over the place!

Lolly - no, my mum always said it, I thought it was a weegie one?

AM - you know proud's a word I don't often get to use about my children...

Ayak - ooh thank you, I will pop over and say thanks properly

Andy - yeah Northampton, doesn't even have a Starbucks, the deprivation of it

Nickie - send your address love and I'll pop them round, no, don't thank me, it's my pleasure

Libs - oh you so know my strong willed wean did dye her hair, and she loves it, I think it's not as nice as her own but who ever listens to their mother?

NB - I know, what damage have I inflicted?

SueAnn - but mine are just plain weird

Lu - my daughter is not keen on Asda but as she has no job it's all she can afford

EM - I know, I just don't even try to understand now, much better for my peace of mind I'm sure
