An old post from 4th of July 2005

Sam just ran back to Home Depot for another part for the air conditioner so I thought I'd post a story from July 4th 2005...   "Calm down Mom"

HAPPY 4th!!!!! EVERYONE

It is a quiet one here because boys are at football camp!!!  YOO HOO!  I drove 3 hours to San Diego yesterday to drop them off... In the middle of the drive a sleeping Kameron wakes up and says

"OH MY GOD" 

"What?" 

"Oh No!!!"  

"What? Kameron?"

"Oh great... I forgot my cleats at home!" 

[part of me wanted to kill him! This is the kid I have been bitching at for 3 days to pack and get ready]

"I am ready! Mom calm down, what is there to pack? Athletic shorts, gear, t-shirts... I'm packed... All I need to grab are my pillow and blankets... Chill... God you get so crazy!" 

"Well, Kameron if you hadn't forgotten your brand new wakeboard during the last trip we went on then I guess I wouldn't worry! Pardon me if it seems you forget a major thing 6 out of 10 times!" 

"If I forget something.... I forget it... I'll live!"

[I was dreaming of making him play on astro turf in skate shoes... that imagine went poof when I saw him sliding and breaking something...]

I was going to say "Where do you get this from... must be your father's side... when all of a sudden it dawned on me I left my purse at our place in lake havasu and I was lucky to have a $100 bill on me!  I decided not to say I told you so... I was trying to come to terms with the fact he gets it from me... I have a good excuse!  5 kids...Suddenly, I snap to and hear the conversation going on in the car...

"Kameron excuses are like assholes everyone has one and they stink!"

"Hey! Watch your mouth... now everyone look for a Sportmart!"

Kendra how you stay sane with all those boys around is beyond me. It is enough to drive you crazy, but you handle it with flair.
Hope you all had a great 4th this year. It was rainy and nasty here.
Hugs, Chrissie
