Ask someone who loves you what one of your weaknesses is.
Well, of course I am going to pick this prompt
from Mama Kat today!
Writer’s Workshop is fun!
I mean, I don’t know if you know by now or not,
but I am practically perfect : )
I asked Shoshi first.
Shoshi has this amazing melt your heart smile
and he hangs out in our house just about as much as Kaishon
so I just knew he would give a good answer.
‘Hi Shoshi honey. Can you tell me a weakness I have?’
“I like your chocolate chip cookies.”
I knew he would have something brilliant to say!
Clearly he didn’t get the question.
That was just fine with me.
Kaishon over heard me asking Shoshi.
He told Jonathon.
Jonathon came racing over and started to rattle things off.
See if I feed you hot pockets or chocolate chip cookies anymore…
The nerve of Some people.
Well, of course Kaishon had some weaknesses to tell me about.
“Well. first of all Mom, you make me go to acting class.”
‘Ummmmmmmmmmmm, Hello, honey chile,
you need extra curricular activities to get into college!’
(So what if that is 8 years away.)
We have to start early.
Then he said,
”You make me take too many baths.”
I told him those things were NOT weaknesses.
These were typical Mother jobs.
There is a rule book out there for Mommies
and the number one rule is
“Make your kid take a bath
and change his underwear every day.”
He didn’t believe me.
Since no one was getting it : )
and even though I am [practically] perfect,
I did think there might possibly
be one or two actual weaknesses to mention.
I sat them down and explained what a weakness was.
And then, well, they had a million weaknesses to mention.
All three of the boys mentioned ‘the yelling.’
I won’t tell you ALL of the issues.
I think I would scare you!
Let’s just focus on the yelling for today.
Yelling is a problem for me.
So, right then and there,
I made a commitment to the boys
to make a real effort to stop yelling so much.
I don’t think it is healthy.
What is one of your weaknesses?
