I know that look!
Sometimes I do that same look! Usually when I am like really? I put that somewhere??? Or it’s the now what look! I really wanted to do was a Jumping Jesus response to Alex! Keep in mind he is 15. I can chuckle now. The Jumping Jesus was what my mother said before loudly saying “By the Jumping Jesus you’d better move!” This was if we were procrastinating. If it was just “Jumping Jesus then it was for some other reason but very motivational matter what. It was the tone of voice that made the impact. If she caught you and it was by the ear____well your toes might not touch the floor. It would be later and with other people’s children, she would rain this into a “having the patience for children state, or way of being. It was a good idea to move. Well, this said I do not do that, I did not like it when it was done to me. But I do get upset rarely. In hindsight, it was because it had been one too many teenage “I don’t care’s.” said in what I took as a disrespecting way. Now, I know he does not mean it as it sounds, he has ADHD. So I know him but it hit me, I was missing Tom’s more adult even ADHD manner. LOL I was upset enough that I went down peer in gave him the look above, at least I think I did. And he came out and asked what was my problem. Well, I told him and he said he was sorry, did not mean to sound that way. He would try to keep it in mind. He’s been very nice since. I know kids say things like “I don’t care, I got to tell him his mother’s version was “YA! Right! So we saw the humor in it. Generally, we do very well. I write and do art, he plays his games, watches tv rarely, comes and digs me up when he is hungry. We do school. He makes of the cat, showers, and is doing his own laundry. “I thought I was doing good, I have done my own laundry for three days! LOL I said, “Yes, I love that but when I feel funky do a bit more like your soda cans and socks.” He’s a nice young man.
