If I had a dollar for every time that I have asked that question, I would be a very rich woman. I would be so rich that I would have a cabana next to a pool next to a mansion next to a river in Las Vegas. I know that there are not any rivers in Las Vegas, but that's okay. I would be so rich that I could have one installed.
Riley had Saturday school this morning which meant that I woke up wide awake at 6:30 even though it was a Saturday and I layed there in bed wide awake even after Derek left for work because I was afraid that I would fall back to sleep and not get up in time to drive Riley to school. He (aka Oklahoma Jones) got in trouble for taking a laser pointer off of a teacher's desk and "accidentally" forgot to tell her that he had it or to take it back to her. Of course it wasn't his fault. It was all a conspiracy against him. Life is not fair and nobody likes him. Blah blah blah. The point of the story is that Saturday is my day to sleep in and I didnt get to because my dumb ace son can't keep his hands off of other people's stuff.
He stood around waiting for me to find my shoes and get the car keys. I asked the question that I always ask every single one of my kids each and every time we are getting ready to walk out the door. "Did you brush your teeth and put on deoderant?" I got the "who are you and what are you talking about? What are these teeth things that you speak of?" look. Which answered my question. I pointed towards the bathroom and he went. Who knows if he actually brushed his teeth while he was in there. More than likely he just stood there in the middle of the room for five minutes trying to figure out how to work that door thing so he could get back out. When he emerged I asked "did you put on deoderant" to which he replied, "I am only going to Saturday school". EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW !!!
Teenagers are just gross ! I don't care if you are going to meet the President, going to school, or just going to the post office - you ALWAYS brush your teeth and put on deoderant. The last thing in the world a mother wants is to have the "stinky" kids at school.
