So on with my story from our weekend trip. It actually happened before leaving town, while we were on our way to drop off Aaron Job with the family he was staying with. Now, this was a nice family, a really nice family. You know the kind whose children never misbehave-that kind of nice family. So we're driving along in a fun car that we rented for the weekend, and I hear a fun song playing lowly on the radio, and I'm all about having fun right now because I going away for the weekend with no diaper bag attached to me!! So I crank up the radio and we hear:
"YOU GOT MUD ON YOUR FACE, BIG DISGRACE, SOMEBODY BETTA PUT YOU BACK INTO YOUR PLACE!!"
Now, Aaron is by no means stuffy and uptight, but he quickly, but quietly, said "Turn that down! We don't want him walking into these people's house singing that song!" And you have to admit, once you get to the chorus, it is a pretty catchy song. You're probably singing it right now just from reading my post title! Aaron tried to say this casually and quietly, but the keen ears in the back seat heard him anyway. So our son says "Why don't you want me to sing that? Will they think they have mud on their faces?"
All we could do at that moment was just go along with him like "Yeah, that's right! We don't want to embarrass them!"
My sweet son! Always thinking of others first! But his parents? NOOOO, we're thinking about the mud on our own face!
