EXPLoiT YouR CHiLDReN WeLL

Yesterday was Sexyhusbandomine & my 13 Year Anniversary! I came home to what I thought would be a lovely anniversary card from Complicated Boy. Instead-I got this:


With the following contents which I have edited. That's right Chickens: I edited this communication FBI Alien Investigation style. So that when CBoy is laying on a couch talking to his therapist years from now, a simple Google search should reveal that I was not SUCH a bad mom. I may drink too much and feed them Chinese Take Out too many times a week, but my heart is in the right place:


And that little piece of poo sitting on top of the school building? Budding Artistic Genius. He got that from Me.


Perhaps I need to spend less time on the computer, and more time teaching CBoy the correct spelling of CRAPPY.

funny, the first thing we do when they say don't put it on your blog is that we put it on our blog.
I say, thats our job. To make sure their behavior is not blog worthy. Sideways child psychology.
Sorry, CB, I've had a few crapy days lately too. Read Who Moved My Cheese and then you will know what to do with the poo on top of the school. Or not.

BEST POST EVER!!!

I cannot begin to tell you how freaking hard this made me laugh. As if him saying, in card form, that he had the crappiest day wasn't good enough, he actually wrote "Don't show this on you blog." That kid is the best.

I think C-boy needs his own blog where he can exploit his parents! :-D

An anniversary gift you can cherish forever.
Congrats!

That poor kid. At least he's venting about it on paper. My youngest would have come home and beat up her older sister. But I could be wrong about that, Jens gotten a little bigger these days.

tell CBoy it's nothing Ben & Jerry can't fix.

Knowing the correct spelling of "crappy" will serve him well. I LOVE that you showed this on your blog! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

GiGi said...

OMG that is hilarious. Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

Poor CBoy, but daymn this is funny - maybe he'll grow up a cartoonist and make comic strips, not war.

supah ~d said...

That is a RIOT.. .. it is a blessing that he comes to you to share his woes.. :)

pgwfolc said...

That's precious. Or perhaps precocious? Precarious? Some word like that, anyway.

I love that he said not to blog it. And that you did anyway, albeit in redacted form. One day, he'll look back at this and... probably roll his eyes, sigh, and blog about the experience.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.

And Happy Anniversary! :)

Oh dear. The snoop in me (hey, I'm a reporter) wants to know what could make such a happy little guy so mad. I am in awe of his artistic talent.

rpc said...

First of all you annoy CBoy by putting the censored version on your blog. Then you leave everyone else dying of curiosity because we want to know all of the details.

I love the pictures.

Is that a silly straw coming out his ear?
It was a little hard to read under that black marker but do I understand right? Did you really bust his piggy bank for cookie and liquor money?

kwr221 said...

I love the steam coming out of his ear and the really really angry expression!

What happened?
(we won;t tell that you told)

Zakary said...

1. Happy Anniversary seriously.

2. That is the funniest shit ever. EVER.

3. I think our kids are related.

Debbie said...

I used to love those notes my kids left me. Sadly, I did not have a blog back then.
Happy Anniversary!
