There's a New Heroine In Town

There is some serious heroine worship going on in this house now that Morrigan is here. The boys have been growing their hair out, this shag look. Blech. But there are other battles, so I leave the hair alone. Of course Mo had to tell my oldest she LOVED this look. So now he won’t cut his hair.

Probably forever.

She has been ill since she’s been here, evidently having picked up a stomach bug while on her business travels, and so today I ran out to Publix with my eldest to pick up Gatorade and ginger ale.

I walked down the coke aisle and picked up a bottle of Canada Dry, in bottles. My eldest looked at me and said, “Aunt Mo needs those short little cans. Those are better than bottles.”

Really?

So up and down the aisle we walked, not finding those short stubby cans. I said, “Dude, we’re getting the bottles. That’s all they have unless I buy a big box of cans, I we don’t need that much…” and with that, I picked up the bottles of Canada Dry again.

He said, “Mooom. No. Not the Canada Dry. Mimi drinks Shweppes. That’s what we need.”

What? Why did he know that? How does he remember something like what kind of ginger ale my mother drinks? And he can’t remember where he put his spelling words?

So, Shweppes it was… and he had me buy her jello too. It was all about Aunt Mo today and doing whatever he could do to make her feel better.

Oh and she tried to pull one over on him. She was talking about how rotten she felt and she said, “And I think I feel worse because when I got sick last night, it was solid food. I’m used to throwing up liquid…” and she looked at my son and finished, “You know, like when you throw up because you drank too much… water?”

And my son looked at her, raised an eyebrow and said, “Or maybe… alcohol?”

Heh. She and I laughed.
