Spawn and I have been locked in an EPIC battle over studying for his first high school exams for a solid week now and it is evidently wearing on me!
M-"Do you have homework?"
S-"No, MOM-it's review for exams all week!
M-"So why don't you use the free time to ....UH.. study for exams. " :)
S-"Are you INSANE!"
M-"Just an idea....."
M-"Please use some time at your dad's this weekend to study for Tuesday's exam. Then you can use time on MLK day to study for Wednesday's exam. That way you are a day ahead and not stress studying the night before."
S-"Huh...that makes no sense Mom...none at all. How do you keep your JOB! Seriously.....study a day ahead...that is just ridiculous...have you ever heard of keeping it fresh...hahahahaha...ridiculous..obviously it has been a while since you were in school...wow mom...
M-"Stop talking..just stop-DO IT!"
M-"Did you study over the weekend?"
M-" Start now!"
S-"I am going to need some relax time before I start."
M-"YOU HAD ALL WEEKEND RELAXING!"
S-"Wow, take a chill pill...did you you take your hormone today mom...seriously!"
M-"Study NOW and NO TV!"
S-"I study better with the TV on...sorry it's true...and I study better if I study the night before the test because the pressure helps me!!!!"
At this moment I am transported back in time and I have Farrah hair, bell bottoms and a purple fuzzy sweater and oddly, the very same words are coming out of my mouth as I look up at my dad and he is looking as pissed as I feel.
M-"It's study time."
S-"Mom-I am fairly confident I can make at least a decent B on this one without studying so I am thinking I will pass on the studying and just go with what I have actually absorbed and learned during class time and watch That 70's show instead."
M-"ARE YOU SERIOUS! SERIOUSLY!"
S-"WHAT IS UP with you and this studying. YOU have become a study NAZI!!!"
He is standing in front of me -HA-looking UP into my eyes and I am looking down into his and I am so pissed that in the moment...all I could think of to say was ....
M-"DON"T MAKE ME GO SPIDER MONKEY ON YOUR ASS!"
yup-that is just what popped out and we stared each other for about half a second before we both starting laughing so hard we cried..we did the whole..calm down..breathe//look at each other and start laughing again. Oh, Karma really is a bitch...sorry Daddy....I really am!
