In Memory of Martin Luther King??

I guess there is a time in every mother's life when she has to resort to bribery. I went to Safeway at 11:00 at night to buy fruit snacks. My choices weren't great--Barbie, Monster's Inc., Batman, and the Smurfs, trying to decide what a 9 year old boy wouldn't find embarassing on the school playground. Anyway, I decided on Batman and went on my way.

My plan was to pay off a kid who has been bugging Ethan at school everyday. I guess he tells lies about Ethan to the yard duties and the kid just won't stop following him. And.... since Ethan is studying MLK this week, he thought maybe he should just try being nice to the enemy. Funny, cause a certain friend of mine would say Ethan should just forget the fruit snacks and justbeat the crap out of the kid.

BOL - excellent. Love your neighbor. And if that doesn't work then beat the crap out of him.

By the way, When I woke Ethan up for school on Thursday morning, his first bleary sentence was, "Did mamma get the fruit snacks?" I said yes. He said, "What kind?" I explained the choices and said she picked Bat Man. He said "That's the best one. That will be OK."

So even though he'd asked for sharks, you managed to get the right one.

Or, i have a friend whose seven year old will teach the bully a lesson or two.

Better yet, send my friend to lunch with your son. She can pull a Rebecca DeMorne (scene from "Hand that Rocks the Cradle"), and surely that will work.

My memory is failing me about the specifics of that scene, but it seems that she scares the hell out of a kid somehow...

Boy - word travels fast that I actually did a blog. I figured no one would read it. There is a strange comment, I mean, a strange person's, I mean a comment from a person who I don't know on my Cal Football blog and I just now noticed it!!
