Mama DNA

I was driving my kids to the craft store to get some material for my daughter's school project.  We went along merrily (or as merrily as we could in the Atlanta traffic).  Suddenly, I felt a tug on my hair.  Then a pinch.

The passenger behind me was pulling my hair.  That passenger was none other than my nine-year-old son, Bubba.

"Dude, what did you do that for?"  I glared at him in the rear-view mirror.

He was grinning from ear to ear.  "I have some Mama DNA now."  He held up a few strands of my long, brown hair.

I shook my head and rolled my eyes.  "What are you going to do with Mama DNA?"

He thought about that.  "Clone you?  You always say you need more of you to get everything done."  Then he shook his head.  Apparently he had a second thought. "But that would mean more grouchy Mamas."

Uh huh.  And he definitely would not want more of those!

  1. Tell him he needs access to my clone machine first.

  2. Yeah, he might not want more of those, but having more clones to divide the workload amongst would be nice. :)

  7. If you had two you's, you could delegate to yourself any chores you don't feel like doing.. get you to do them.. instead of you :-)

    1. Mama will be more than grouchy if he does that. She'll be downright vicious!

  10. *LOL* Let me know if he does decide to do it and if it's successful. I could use a clone or two!

    1. Okay. If his experiment is a success, you'll be the first to know! ;)

  11. LOL! I think I'd fear a nine-year-old with the ability to clone more than a grouchy mama... XD

  13. If he can clone you, he can clone himself. That means more Bubbas.

  14. Maybe if he had an extra mama clone, he'd have more help for homework, or making snacks for him. He might wish for another one of you sometime before long,especially since she'd have all of your talents.
