Friday Fragments: When Mamma Goes Away

I mentioned last Friday and again on Wednesday that I was going away without my kids last weekend.

My reward for going away:  The Boy went down with Strep Monday. It was a Teacher Work Day, so in the scheme of things, a good day to be sick. I was able to get in without issue and leave plans for Tuesday AND pick up all the work I had planned to do on Monday.

*****

I have another new obsession:  Words with Friends.  Yes, I'm late to the party, but what else is new?  I'm so obsessed that I maybe downloaded it onto The Boy's iPod Touch so I could play against him. 

We were able to message each other throughout the weekend. Of course, every time my literal 9-year-old replied to my "I Love You's" with and "I am having fun," this Mama smiled.

*****

Following this trip last year, I posted for you one of my favorite songs of the weekend.  We sang it again and I remain committed to the notion that I will dance with my son at his wedding to this song!





They put it up on the screen and I was running for the tissues.  Some of the girls made fun of me and of course it was those exact girls that had to borrow my tissues!

*****

Heard at the dinner table the week:

The girl says, "Mamma, Tony Hawk has three wives." ~For the record, I have no idea if this is true or how she found out.  We are not a family that follows skateboarding and she only knows who he is because her brother has a game for his Nintendo DSi.

I reply, "Well, he doesn't have three wives, but he may have been married three times.  You have to be divorced before you can get married again."

She says, "He didn't not like his other wives, but each time he found one that was prettier!"

Seriously my child, where do you get this stuff??

To my credit, I did not a say what you know I was all thinking, "That's not necessarily true sweetie, because Mamma is WAY prettier than Daddy's new wife!"  I may have been thinking it, but I didn't SAY it! *grins*

I am totally obsessed with Words with Friends. I absolutely love it!

And oh you are so GOOD for biting your tongue. I don't know if I could have!

I would have said it.

Diane said...

I'm not even sure what Words with Friends is but I'm usually out of the loop!

Maybe she's confusing Tony Hawk with Kody Brown, the crazy hair guy on TLC with four wives!

Happy Friday! :)

Good for you keeping that thought to yourself. It's not easy to do!!!

Tiffany said...

You have more self control than I, I would have said it.

Hopefully the boy is feeling better, darn strep.

Slamdunk said...

Man leave it to kids to pelt us with tough questions. We are just trying to eat. You handled it well.

I hope your son feels better and that you enjoy the weekend.

tessica said...

ooo once I figure out how to make a name for myself we should totally play words with friends together!
and kids do say the darndest thing! and it's always the best when they say what you're thinking yourself!!

Fragment. Wouldn't that be a great play for Words With Friends. As a blogger myself, Words With Friends seems a more appropriate time-waster than, say, television. Bottom line, my blog has more word game posts than thoughtful entries. Too easily preoccupied by WWF and TV. I will always justify my TV time as long as I can tie it back to wordplay. Blame my love of Scrabble, WWF and TV trivia for me creating my blog and the anagrams I invent. Still, all these distractions keep me from posting interesting stuff like you do.

I haven't played yet but I am constantly getting invites- do you like it?

Sean got strep 2 days before we were supposed to g on honeymoon.
We haven't had one yet.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Dying laughing at the last fragment! I probably would have said it, too. I'm evil like that.

julie said...

I'll have to track you down on words with friends for a friendly game. :) Where did you head on vacation? Anywhere warm?
Have a great Saturday!

Shell said...

I don't know if I would have been able to refrain from saying I was prettier than the new wife!

Find me on WWF: shellthings. I have a slight addiction, too. Even though I usually lose. LMAO

Unknown Mami said...

Well, Tony may have traded up, but your ex will never trade up from you. No way, it's all downhill.

You should have said it.

Emmy said...

Kids do say funny things. Glad you were able to get away and that your kids getting sick didn't end up ruining your plans.

I have not started playing Words with Friends as yea I know I would be hooked

Babes Mami said...

I love that he got new wives because they were prettier haha

The Blonde Duck said...

Hope you had a great weekend!

Stephanie said...

LOL I would have said it too:)

Adrienne said...

LOL! Love that last line. I'm sure it's not true, AND I LOVE WWF!! :)

Carly said...

I love words with friends, but I guess I am over it. I went more than 7 days, and forfeited my games. I have not gotten back into it since.

busanalayali said...

Thank you for posting this. It’s exactly what I was looking for!
