Don't worry, Mom...

Just something funny- no, make that hilarious- I want to share with y'all. Turns out that my youngest, Kirk, has a new favorite caveat. This usually occurs while I am teaching a school lesson to another child, pulling something from a 450 degree oven, or scrubbing out a toilet. But he will run in and say, "Don't worry, Mom, I cleaned it all up!!!" There is always something horrifying about imagining what "it" might be....

This reminds me of my little brother's response, heard from afar, as Mom headed up the stairs:
"Mom's coming! We'd better say 'Yes ma'am!'"
Then, of course, he would block the doorway to his bedroom, repeating feverishly, "Yes, ma'am. Yes ma'am!" leaving Mom to wonder just what lay beyond the doorway.
