STBM I just texted you

My Tween Iz and his friends:
"Why you not call man?"
"I just texted Fernando dude, chill out!"

Those two sentences are like nails on a chalkboard to me. Why you not call man? What kind of sentence is that? That alone proves my theory School should still be in session! Also I just "texted"...It's text. I just texted you... that means nothing!! nothing!! nothing!!!! It's like nails on a chalkboard!!

Iz deep in the Fridge...

Iz: "Mom there's no food!" 
Me: "There is a whole kitchen full of food!"
Iz: "Nothing I like, I'm starving!"
I give Iz "the look"
Iz: "I know, I know there are babies starving in Africa"
Me: "There are babies starving in Africa, and you don't know what Hungry is kid!"
Iz: "C'mon mom, I'm tired of hearing that, when's the last time you were in Africa?"
Me: "When I was a baby starving, Smart Ass!!"

I wake up to a notice taped on my door...

This is your Bus Driver. Will pick Tafari up at 8:09am and return him at 1:32pm. Summer School begins Monday!

I do the happy dance all over the Apartment!

Iz asks to see the note, I give it to him.

Iz: Mom stop dancing.
Me: Don't Hate cuz I got the moves!
Iz: No really Mom, stop dancing
Me: Watchu know about the Cabbage Patch, Running Man, & The White Girl (Molly Ringwalds dance in The Breakfast Club), and I do each dance like an 80's pro!
Iz: No Mom, really... stop dancing!!
Me: When I'm tired.... I still got it! (really I'm huffing, puffing, and sweating)
Iz shoves the notice towards me and says: Read the bottom!
Bottom of note: Summer School is four weeks long.
Me: WTH?? Four Weeks!! But regular School isn't back in session until September!
Iz: I'm glad I don't have Summer School.
Me: Go to your room!
Iz: Why?
Me: Because there are children starving in Africa.

I remember those days when my children were gone for short periods of time every day. What heaven! The luster of not having to get up early every morning wears off very quickly when THEY NEVER GO AWAY!
