It Sure Ain't Rain While the Sun's A-Shinin'

Scene while celebrating Mother's Day at my parents' house:

My almost 20 year-old nephew walked into my parents’ house tonight with a college-boy created Mohawk of golden blonde curls.

My 17 year-old niece is starring in Cabaret next weekend at her high school and informed us that her character is described in the play as, “possibly a WHORE.” In caps, she added.

My nephew plays so nicely with Monkey Man, and tonight their shenanigans turned Monkey Man into a fraternity boy running around the grandparents’ house with his shirt off his torso and on his head and his socks on his ears.

After dinner conversation between my dad, my sister and my husband took place around the dining room table while I was out of the room. I was not there to witness the dialogue, but it was such that it prompted my mother, MY MOTHER, to ask me, “What is a golden shower?”

Cue uproarious laughter from the dining room. And then, Happy Mother’s Day mom, I explained it to her. This was certainly a mother’s day for dear mom to remember.

After 10 years of being with my crazy family, it's either fit in or get out!
