Lady, Don’t Even Think About It!

“Mom, I want you to stand on the front porch                                                         when my bus passes, but please don’t look                                                                      at the bus and definitely don’t wave or shout out.” Anna-11

I guess cartwheels down the sidewalk would be out of the question.

  1. I guess running after Anna while shouting, “Honey, don’t forget your notebook dividers!” wouldn’t go over well either…

    When my son entered kindergarten (he’s entering 2nd this year), he cried that he couldn’t take the bus because both parents worked and couldn’t stand with him at the bus stop. When I was laid off, we arranged so he could take the bus for the last 3 months of school. I think that was enough, because the subject hasn’t come up again, as he didn’t like how early the bus came…although, both kids still get excited when we hop on any other bus.

    SIG beat me to the punch(line). For the record, she said nothing about what you could wear on the front porch – that freedom alone could yield some wonderful and embarrassing kid moments. (Mwaahahahahahaaa!)

    • Lenore, I’ve already been informed that I may not leave the house in my pajamas. They’re still scarred from the time I ran out to the bus stop in my bathrobe with my hair in a towel. The bus showed up early and I was still in the shower. 😦

    I have some signal flags you could borrow. Maybe pom-poms? Or for ultimate embarrassment, hire a light plane with a banner to swoop overhead. Heck, maybe one of Goodyear’s blimp are available…..

      It doesn’t end there, Nancy. When we dropped off our second daughter at the U of Iowa (incoming freshman class of 4500) it was all that she could do to withstand a hug from me. It’s still not cool to be seen with “Dad.” I’ll extract my revenge some weekend when I show up wearing shorts, socks and sandels. “Wanna go out and get some groceries and supper?!” 😉

    • I think I’d like to borrow those signal flags. Maybe they could be useful in the bathroom as well…my boys have terrible aim. 😉

        Sure one of those “Biohazard” warning signs wouldn’t be more appropriate? I might even be able to get you one of those cleanup suits, complete with the Darth Vader-sounding breather units. “Attention! Attention! Lethal toxic spill ahead! Evacuate IMMEDIATELY!” 😉

    There was a guy who dressed up in a different costume every day of the school year for when his son passed.

    • Thanks for the great idea, Bearman. Maybe I’ll be Mrs. Claus for their school Christmas party and Wonder Woman for Mother’s Day.

        Can I be there for Mother’s Day? I’ll pass on the Christmas Party.

          If you do go, Dad, I fear I must insist on photos. Lots of ’em. After all, if there can be a whole website dedicated to various people wearing “Princess Leia’s Brass Bikini”, I think we should be able to find a Wonder Woman-related site your daughter could dazzle!

            LOL! My daughter is 11 and I prefer not to consider her dazzling as Wonder Woman. My wife is this author (YAW) and she is always dazzling – even in her pajamas at the bus stop. Mrs. Claus would be tough to pull off…

            Oops! Err… umm…. (c’mon kid, think QUICK!!) Um – how ’bout we call that one a swing and a miss? Sorry ’bout that, right idea, wrong generation, I really WASN’T suggesting anything about your 11-year-old. (I’m weird, but not THAT weird!)
            And as for your lovely wife, well, I have seen some “Mrs. Santa” outfits that are … um … shall we say, highly NON-traditional? Hot, yes, sexy, yes, traditional, NOOOOOOO WAY!

    I think an investment in a tie-dyed housedress, curlers and a megaphone are in order…
