There are some days, where I really enjoy being a Mom. This is one of them. Forewarning, this isn't a warm fuzzy moment.
Patrick called me at work this morning to ask about some green Jell-O in the fridge. Now I made this on Sunday, but he doesn't know that.
So he asks if he can eat the green Jell-O, and I said yes, and we hung up. I waited about 2-3 minutes and then called him back.
Me: "Did you say green Jell-O?" Patrick: "Yeah, why." Me: "Um, have you started eating it yet?" Patrick: "Yeah, why?" Me: "Uh.. well.. ok. I'm sure you'll be fine." Patrick: "Why?!" Me: "Well, I thought I made orange Jell-O, but I'm sure it was green. Never, never mind. You'll be fine." Patrick: "Ok. Are you sure?" Me: "Yep, sure. Bye"
I waited 10 minutes and called back.
Me: "You didn't eat all of the Jell-O, did you?" Patrick: "Yeah, I did. Why? Mom! Why?!" Me: "Uh.. let me think. Ok, do you have my work phone number at school?" Patrick: "I know it." Me: "Oh, I know that. But you might want to write it down. In case you get light headed or something."
Me: "Ok, well I have to go back to work, and your bus should be there any minute." Patrick: "Mom. Are you kidding? What's wrong with the Jell-O." Me: "Oh nothing, I was just...um...uh...teasing you. Try to have a good day at school, ok?" Patrick: *sigh*
