Wordful Wednesday


He looks cute.  

Even Sweet.  

Looks are deceiving.  

He'd throw his momma under the train if he thought it could get him some sympathy.  And a call home.

So I got a call from the school nurse today.

Apparently the boy came by the health office with a stomach ache.  

It was right before lunch, so she told him to go have some lunch and see if that helped.

He says okay.  And reappears a minute later.

Nurse, "I thought you were going to try some lunch."

TB: "Well, I forgot to tell you something."

Nurse: "Okay.  What is it."

TB:"My throat hurts.  And, I am tired cause my mom had her book club and they kept me up all night."

Nurse: "Oh.  I see.  Well, let me give your mom a call.  I know how those book clubs can be."


That sucker. Sellin' me out to the nurse.  Fortunately, she is also in a book club and knows that a group of women and some wine can interfere with a 7 year olds sleep habits.

Go play Wordful Wednesday with Angie!

There's my son-in-law! I just love him.
Swirl Girl said…
at least he didn't tell her it was because mommy and daddy had a date night and kept him up all night!
Definitely a frame worth photo. Wait.......he's already promised to Lula's daughter? Figures. :)

I'm so glad you played along.....

My daughter sold me out just tonight.

Good evening Tiffany. Kept your boy up all night did you? I'm absolutely appalled!... That you were sober enough to drive him to school the next morning...shame on you for losing a buzz that quickly!

That is so funny and such a great thing to do, those poor school nurses must hear the greatest excuses!
Don't you just love when kids say things. My little girl is bad about that. Thanks for sharing -- he is to cute --

Much Love

That is hysterical. I'll bet the nurse gets the old "the book club kept me up" excuse ALL the time.
Jen said…
So that is what I have to look forward too, my kids selling me out. Nice.
But on the other hand, he does look so cute.
tiarastantrums said…
oh, that was so funny!!
Connie said…
Mine is selling me out right as we speak. She wanted to basically dress like a clown for school today because I don't do laundry often enough. Yeah ~ that went over real well.

Great photo. That is the funniest story I have heard all day! Just plain hilarious! Thanks for that.
S Club Mama said…

Heather said…
Okay, I am so psyched that I am on your friends list! You've been on mine for awhile, but you're like, famous.

You are just so sweet.
Susie said…
That stinker!!
I saw you over on the S Club 3 blog and thought I'd stop by to check out your site. Cute design! And... that is hilarious about the book club! I think all the babes in blogland can relate to that one LOL.

Glad I stopped by for a visit. Hope you have a happy first day of October!
Soulflower said…
so did his tummy hurt, his throat hurt, was he sleepy or just wanted to come home??? In any case, why don't you and your rowdy book clubbers keep it down at night? I've been kept up many a night by people like you...enuff is enuff - won't SOMEBODY think of the children!
Jenni said…
LOL! Keep it DOWN mom. Geez!
MO said…
LOL! Great post, great blog!
Okay...so the reader in me must ask - what book were you discussing???

That's like my Madalyn. Who comes down to ask me if she can have a cough drop. Cause her throat hurts. And she coughs a little for effect. And I say fine. That they are in my drawer. She leaves the room, starts to walk up the stairs...and I hear the cough drop hit the hard wood floor...
Mom said…
Great picture!

I would love to be a part of a book club. I need to see if there is one around me.

I'm on first name basis with our school nurse...lol! Hope he is feeling better now.
Aunt Julie said…
The photo melted my heart and the story gave me a giggle. Thanks!
The Blonde Duck said…
That's so sad your kid sold you out!
WheresMyAngels said…
Too funny!! I'm so glad that two of mine had some speech difficulties that when little, prevented them from being able to tell on me!! ha ha

Schmerica said…
We got served by an almost 8 year old...dang he's crafty!
Cecily R said…
He's a brilliant little sucker, isn't he? Oh, you are so screwed when it comes to teenagerness...(and I am right there with you!)

And that pic? I totally agree with Angie. A framer for sure!
Ginger said…
