And then there was pie ... and cooters with bite!

Mother's Day was quite amazing this year. I know I cranked about it last week. But it really did rock.

For starters, I have been promised an iPhone!!!! (More on that later.)

Our brunch singing gig was freakin' AWESOME. We made people cry (in a good way, so shut up!). (More on THAT later.)

My girls showed up for the brunch with flowers, a card and balloons.

And the Drama King baked a pie.

The pie arrived Sunday night in the hot little hands of Drama King and his boyfriend Rocky, made with love in their very own kitchen. A chocolate pudding'ish affair with an Oreo crust.

Be still, my chocoholic heart.

Anyway, I couldn't figure out how to talk about all these things in one post, so I feel the need to split it up.

For today, my internet pretties, I offer up one of our patented Planet of Janet cringeworthy conversations. (And before you call Child Protective Services, please be advised that Roo-girl was already in bed before this took place!)

The scene: Our kitchen table, strewn with the remnants of yummy yummy pie.

The participants: J-bear, Drama King, Rocky and Drummer Man. Oh, and me, Evil Mother.

J-bear: *random thought* You know those bows you put on cars that are a present? Those are, like, $20!

Drama King: Oooh, I want one of those.

Rocky: What would you do with it?

Drama King: *smirks*

Rocky: Oh, I KNEW I shouldn't have asked.

Evil Mother: Well, you know, it's kinda like that Saturday Night Live sketch.

Drama King: *curls up in a ball, whimpering, in Rocky's lap*

Evil Mother: Oh, sure, like you didn't start it ...

Drama King: *whispers fearfully* Vagina dentata?

Evil Mother: Oh. My. GAWD.

Drama King: There was a movie about that ...

*and then another voice entered the madness*

Drummer Man: Oh, yeah, that got pretty good reviews.

*Unison gasps from the others*

Drummer Man: You know, like at film festivals and stuff. I wanted to see it, but it never was around here.

Rocky: La la la la la la ... anyone want more pie?

That cake is adorable like a big puffy heart. So sweet. I am so relieved that the day turned out awesome--you so deserve it.

Love the conversation...there is a sweetness that comes out when a family can discuss anything. I think....

nikki said...

So, any pie left to share?

I love your family conversations!

Oh, my. You were right. That did leave me speechless. EEK! I'm confused by Drama's shirt tho?

And, poor Rocky. He had no idea what he was getting into with your family did he??

Burfica said...

That is so fricken funny. And even more funny you can say the word vagina around the boys without them puking and fainting. lmaooooooooooo

Jenni said...

I am once more struck by the similarities in our family conversations. I feel almost normal.

Jenni said...

LOL! I typed, "I'm confused by Drama King's shirt" and then deleted it. I see I'm not the only one, though:o)

I love me some JT. That's possibly the BEST SNL skit ever.

And your family...sounds like fun. Can you come over for dinner sometime?

Please don't tell my wife about the anti-rape female condom with the little microscopic teeth? Please? I mean ... that's not FAIR. Ouch. Okay, now the turtle has gone into his shell and I don't think he's ever coming back out.

LOL. I love the category you stuck this in as well... :)
