Just Like Daddy

Before I share my story, I'd like to announce the winners of Virginia Wright's book:  Christine Rains and Tracy Campbell.  Congratulations, ladies!

Now for the story:

"I want to be just like Daddy," my eight-year-old son announced at the dinner table.

"That's not very ambitious," said my husband.  "I have a job I don't like, I play way too many video games, I ride a motorcycle, and I make Mama mad every day."

I laughed at that last part.  "No," I said,  "only when you call me 'woman' and make demands." 

Without missing a beat, my son said, "Woman, bring me more food!"

Grrrr.  I see I have some work to do with him!


  1. LMAO well at least neither carries around a big club, I hope.

  2. Wow! Terrific! Fantastic!
    I won another book. First, I won your book "The Baby Woke Me Up, Again! (I can't wait to read it, Sherry!)
    And now Virginia Wright's book! I'll be sure to stop over and let Virginia know how pleased I am. :)

    And I see you're another motorcycle mamma.
    Has your husband been talking to mine?
    And yes, you've got your work cut-out for you!
    Loved your son's demand. Out of the mouths of babes!


    P.S. Thank you for linking my blog as well, Sherry!

    1. Hey Tracy, congratulations! You're a lucky lady. And yes, I seriously have my work cut out for me!

  3. haha...that's hilarious. LOVE It!!

  4. That's such a cute story! Your son is a chip off the old block. So funny!

    1. You've got that right - he is a chip off the old block!

  5. Any man who called me "woman" and demanded food would get some canned Pedigree, lightly sauteed.


    1. Hahaha! Heck with the sauteed part! I think I'll just dish out some of Schultz's food when they make those kind of demands.

  6. CONGRATS to the winners!

  7. Ha ha! Me being me would've replied "Get it yourself". Maybe that's why my boyfriend does the cooking and we don't have children :)

  8. *LOL* So funny! I thought every man strives to be able to play video games every day. At least that's what my husband says!

    And yay! I'm so excited I won! Thank you! :)
