I Have My Ways!!

~Of getting even that is...

My teens love to torture me! They do it daily. Especially when we are in the car and I have no way of escaping.
Sometimes they will crank the radio up full blast, roll down the window and holler at people dancing and screaming. I get so irritated and yell at them and turn the music down. Often I'm told "Chill baby girl...it's all good"
Well, today I had the opportunity to get even!
As I was pulling up to pick a mouthy teen at school Lady Gaga came on the radio (who doesn't love Lady Gaga?) So I turned the radio up full blast, rolled down all the windows and slowly rolled up dancing my butt of in the car! All of mouthy teens friends mouths dropped open in shock then they started cracking up. Mouthy teen got in the car and asked "what the crap was that?"
My reply? "Chill~it's all good baby girl!"

I thought this was the reason we had kids. To pay them back for all they do to us, torture them and embarrass them! :) That is hilarious! Good job Lauri!

you are my sister in motherhood.

I like to humiliate my kids with my "pop, lock n try not to throw my back out" move. My 13 yr old will look at me all serious and say, "stop. Please." ha ha But they laugh too and I'm sure deep down they love it.

I sing too. Remember SNL's couple that sang as their skit. She'd make every song (even rap ones) all opera-ish. I do that. Just to horrify my children. Over and over again. ;)

I want a video of that!If I remember right, you have some serious rythm. So it couldn't have been that bad;) Serves them right!(Love your new cute header!)

Um, I think you definitely have Mom's genes! I should try something like that -- Romney would love it, but Kyara definitely needs to lighten up!

kristifritzel said...

Ah, the Proffitt genes. Or rather Ulrich, that is sooo mom! Good for you. I bet her friends think you are so dorky you are cool. Great payback!

Jenifer said...

You crack me up! By the way, congrats about the baby! I was so shocked when I read the post. You make beautiful babies and I am so happy for you!

Ginger said...

You make me proud! Keep it up, way to go!

Lynda said...

OH my gosh, you are so much like your mom! I love it, love it, love it. She has taught me much over the years and I bet you can learn even more.
And Suzann is absolutely right. As they get older, you get to torture them and embarass them to get even for all the years they did it to you!
You go girl! Fantastic!
