A Boy Is Like A Box Of Chocolates

Scene: Saturday morning in the kitchen.

AD: I’m going to take Sean to the park. Wanna go?

AM: No thanks. I think I’ll stay here and get some things done (code for blog).

AD: Come on, go with us.

AM: No thanks. I have Sean all day, all week. I think I’ll let you enjoy some one-on-one Sean time.

AD: I love Sean time.

AM: (perturbed) I love Sean time too, but I have him all day long all week.

(silence)

AM: I love chocolate too, but a pound is more filling than an ounce you know.

(silence)

AM: What I’m saying is that as much as I love chocolate, after I eat an entire box, I’m full. I’m ready for someone else to eat the chocolate. The next day I’m ready to eat more chocolate again.

AD: We’re not really talking about chocolate, are we?

(silence)

AD: It’s that time of the month, isn’t it?

(silence)

AD: Can I get you some chocolate while I’m out?

  1. That man is a keeper!!! Yes, you want him to get you chocolate while he’s out, and if he is smart, he’ll bring back some really good wine too!

    Love this explaination of life as a mom! I think you hit it right on the head.

  2. LOL. DS has been known to show up w/a Vente Mocha for me after conversations like this. Conversations resulting in him taking TS out for a “walk” so Mommy doesn’t kill someone.
    That’s how I know he really loves me; he knows my order at starbucks.

  3. Asking if it’s that time of the month? Dangerous. Very dangerous. Your man likes to risk it all.

    I hope you got an ounce or two of chocolate.
