A conversation with my mother

Me: “Hi Mama. I’m excited to come home this weekend for Daddy’s birthday.”
Mama: “Me too. We are going to have so much fun.”

Me: “What time will we be celebrating tomorrow? For lunch or dinner?”
Mama: “Well, you’re Daddy’s going to be blowing up a beaver dam tomorrow night, so dinner’s out.”

[Pregnant pause…]

Me: “What are the odds that a beaver dam crops up in not one but two conversations this week.”
Mama: “Huh?”

Me: “Oh nothing. So…how does one blow up a beaver dam? With dynamite?”
Mama: “No. I think that’s illegal.”

On my honor as a part-time blogger, I pledge to do whatever it takes to fully provide a detailed report on the blowing up of the beaver dam. I promise no beavers will be injured in the process. Just their dams. Here’s hoping I can secure some video. Wish me luck.

Chances are, it would only come in your conversation! I am cracking up in Columbus OH.

If I didn’t have a sick child at home, baseball tryouts all weekend and lacrosse practice, I’d insist you “hire” me as your videographer!

Thanks for the giggle–ok, guffaw, “What are the odds a beaver dam comes up in not one, but two conversations this week!”. Hysterical.

Pregnant pause long enough for the baby to be born and be completely potty trained?

How exciting for you! I wonder if Ben knows how to explode a beaver dam….um probably not! HAHA

I hope your weekend was exciting! We went to Brad Paisley concert and got a signed guitar and his hat. The kids were super excited!

Great recap.

(Although I initially thought Kasey said, “bitches”, I watched that part again and rather certain the word was “benches” … )
