I'm Old (and I'd Still Better Watch Out, Apparently)

A-train is at that perfect kid age where he's super excited for Christmas and Santa. And he will help you out to make sure you're on your best behavior, too. But he's not standing for any shenanigans.

Case in point.

Yesterday, I was bemoaning to my father some stupid-in-retrospect choices I had made regarding my Fantasy Football team. I said (quite loudly) "So of course I dropped him because he's been $*&#ing the bed for weeks now, and he's having a monster day today!" When whooosh. A certain bundle of adorable ran into the room, and yelled "OH, NO!!! She said a bad word! Did you hear that?" So everybody else got fake appalled, and looked at me (for his benefit) like I had kicked a puppy. He held up his hands and yelled (looking up and around the room) "I am not involved in this, Santa!!! That was her!! I had nothing to do with what she said!" He literally backed away from me, and said "I need to get out of this room so he doesn't think I'm part of this." I stopped him and said "Wait! What should I do? How do I fix this?" and he says, dead serious, "I don't know. This is not my problem!"

Guys? He made me a little afraid. I miss being a kid.


  1. Who needs an Elf on the Shelf?
    Of course, I think the elf thing is kind of creepy.
    I'm sure you can redeem yourself in the next couple of weeks, and your nephew will put in a good word for you.

  2. LOL! It's a good thing we do Sinterklaas in The Netherlands. My mouth is too faul to deal with Elves!!

    1. It's a good thing I don't drive around with him--that's when I'm at my worst.

  3. Christmas is about the innocence of children. How lucky you are to have that little man in your life! Merry Christmas!

  4. Oh wow! You painted this scene so well, I can picture the whole event and cannot stop laughing. A-train sounds like an amazing young man. Merry Christmas!
