Very dangerous phrase…..especially when coming from your almost 20 year old college child.
Hey Ma….can I have some money?
Hey Ma….can you do my laundry?
Hey Ma….can I borrow your car?
Hey Ma…can you cook before I leave?
Sigh….my oldest child, currently known as The Sophomore, is home for Easter Break. No, this is not spring break, that was a few weeks ago. He is home for a week and I couldn’t be happier. He adds to my overall grocery bill when he is home so I am glad he arrived near a pay day…IJS. So it is now Easter Sunday and he wanted me to cook. But not for Easter per say, but because these are things he wants me to make for him (and his girlfriend (another story)) as a Sunday dinner.
How exactly am I supposed to say no to this face?
Or these faces?
Sigh….I’m not. So I grocery shopped for one meal and here is what they wanted:
I could not any conjure up a dessert because I was too tired so I bought candy. I mean it is Easter after all lol.
Full bellies and smiles all around made it all worth it.
So when your college kid comes home, and asks for a meal, do you make it? My child is so far away at school, St. John’s in Queens, NY, that I kinda feel like I have to say yes because we don’t get to see him very often.
Besides, I am NOT giving up my car or my money and I am definitely not doing laundry!
