Kid Quote of the Week


I forgot to give Scout his antibiotic this morning before school. So, I decided that I would drop by the middle school and give it to him. (You know, since I am a nurse, that I am concerned about contributing to resistant bacteria!)


Anyhoo, I called Scout out of class. I didn’t know if that would make him look super uncool.


So, here is our afterschool conversation:


Me: Was it embarrassing for you when I came to give you your antibiotic?


Scout: Yeah, why did you have to come wearing sweats?


Ha! He was embarrassed by my attire to drop something by school. That just cracks me up

Oh my gosh! I thought for sure the embarrassment was because Mommy came with his medicine. Bahahahaha! Next time be sure to dress to the nines and have your hair and make-up done. Bahahahaha

He & Me + 3 said...

Those Darn Sweats. I think I wear those things to drop the kids off at least once a week. Nobody has said anything to me yet. LOL

LOL...when my oldest was in kindergarten, I was excited about helping as a volunteer. The first time I helped, Billy and I talked about it after school that day. His comment to me? "Mama, next time, could you maybe put on some lipstick and dress up a little?" Sheesh...from that point on, I always made sure that if I was going into the school, that I followed his request. Talk about PRESSURE! ;)

Not that you were there but that you came in sweats. Too funny.

Kelley said...

Following HIM said...

Too funny...I would have loved to have read what would have happened if you were in scrubs. I don't think your appearance will harm him ;o

Oh, to be able to see things through the eyes of our kids! Mine is just starting to get to the eye rolling stage when I say something embarassing (like "I love you!"). I can hardly wait for middle school (step back or the sarcasm may just drip on you). Yep, the pressure is on now, Julie. Maybe he can go through your closet and pick out acceptable outfits.. sort of like Garanimals for moms!

Shana said...

That is too funny! That sounds like something my oldest would say, ha!

Rachel said...

ha ha ha ha ha... I feel your pain! My kiddo is in a phase now where he tells me I'm "big" and to "stop singing"...

Glad us Moms can laugh about it!

When Legare was home for some school break or another last year he chastised Hank and me for the clothes we were wearing just around the house. Granted we like ratty old sweats and shorts and old soft t-shirts and sweatshirts but we were at home just lounging around for pete's sake. He looked at us as we were fixing supper and inquired, "You DO realize that you look terrible, DON'T you???"

LOL...Kids!!!

Helene said...

That's hysterical!!! He was more embarrassed with the fact that you were wearing sweats than he was about you coming to school to give him his meds!!!

Kids are so funny!

Mighty M said...

I will have to remember that when it is my turn to drop something off for my kids at school! ;-)

Life with Kaishon said...

I thought he was going to be embarrassed about the medicine : ) Kaish would probably think I was DRESSING up if I wore sweats : ) Often I stay in my pj's all day : ) I know, I know, RIDICULOUS!

Lesli said...

How funny!!

I remember when my son was in middle school, he had a friend that would make his dad drop him off a block away from school and then he would walk to school, also I remember one time his mom or dad (can't remember) blew the horn at him in front of the school and he was soo upset he started crying.. Sometimes I pick my son up at work around 10pm and I am in my pj's, he just laughs at me!!

Orah said...

I would have gone in a robe, frankly.

Brandi said...

HAHA... my 5 year old already monitors what I wear. He'll look at me and say is that what you're wearing? before we leave the house.

Just mention to Scout it would have been way more embarrassing for him if you were dressed really nice and he had to listen to his friends say dude, your mom's hot all day.
