I am a ridiculously good mom. For reals.

This evening at dinner:

Boy Child: So and then? They showed these cats. And mom? Have you ever seen Aunt Susie's cat Raisin? I think he has diabetes.

Me: I don't think he really does. He's just overweight.

BC, snorting: Anyway, these cats? They weighed like 400lbs.

Jason: They weighed what now?

BC: Like 200 pounds.

Jason: Boy Child. Two hundred pounds?

BC: Or like 400 pounds. Whatever.

Jason: Boy Child. How much do you think I weigh?

BC, considering: Um...about 100 pounds?

(Um...no. Have you seen Jason? No.)

Me, almost hysterical with laughter: I'm not even going to ask how much you think I weigh.

BC, immediately: Ninety pounds. Oh yeah!

More hysterical laughter.

Jason, fist-bumping BC: What up, playah?

Me, getting teary-eyed: I've taught you so well.

BC: That's right. When you talk to women and they ask you how old you think they are or how much they weigh? You always subtract 10 years and forty pounds.

Me: I love you even more than I ever thought possible.

Jason: Well. He's going to do much better with the ladies than I ever anticipated.

Me, sniffing: I'm so proud.



Taking bids on him now gals. Taking bids on him now.
