Email from my son.

My kids each have their own email addresses, and occasionally I send them little notes so I can watch their excitement when they see a (1) in their Inbox. Here's an exchange between me and Tito:

From: Mom
Subject: I Love You
To: Tito
Date: Saturday, February 21, 2009, 7:53 PM

I love you, my sweet boy!

Love, Mommy

mom you mak me unbrst

I asked Tito what Un-Burst meant, and he said,

"NO, Mom. You make me UNBARRASSED."

Get used to it, kid.

ETA: I'm saving this pic for your first date.

Oh, Tito!

He'll only be unbrst until he has kids of his own, at which point the true glory of your being will be suddenly apparent. The older my kids get the less embarrassed they are when I do things that used to embarrass them to DEATH, like breathe.

Get used to it is right. I'm pretty sure that's your job. :D

Kev said...

As a parent, isn't it your job to embarrass your kids???

Just wait till you start dating Tito... just wait...

Don't pull that out at his first date! Wait until he's hit the third date with the same girl and then use that to ruin his credibility. Also, it will probably completely cock block him which would be great, this may be the best abstinence program yet...

Dude, that's the only thing that makes hauling their butts around for 9 months, squeezing them out, and raising them for at least 18 years worthwhile. You get to unbrst them!

Kev said...

Oh man PK...when you said my 1st reply gave you an idea, I specifically asked if it would make Tito hate me for life, and you said "no"

Tido, dude, I'm so sorry I gave her the idea for the picture. I hope someday, after many years of therapy, you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

but bezzie is right. you threaten them with unbrst and you'll get them to bend over backwards for ya!
