Poppins hides in the corner wearing the Cone of Shame!

So I get this is the email I get from my son's resource teacher...

FYI your son and I are having a discussion about beer kegs this morning… he can’t believe I’ve never heard of them

Um yeah....the kid has never seen a beer keg!!!

I can only imagine what this woman thinks of my parenting skills at this moment and time.

So I email her back telling her how embarrassed I am (and asking her, "Um seriously, you don't know what a keg is....)

So she laughs at me and says yeah...

He said you know one of those big things that holds beer and you push a little tap thingy and the good beer comes out my dad gets them at the ghetto meijers

And sadly...I am so guilty of teaching him the words, "Ghetto Meijers". But I'm not sure how he knows what GOOD beer is. (Memo to me....tell son there is no such thing as good beer!)

So um, who's sending me the Mother of the Year award? I'll email you my address!

Ha. Don't sweat it. I have a picture of my cousin giving his four-month old baby her first sip of beer.

Ha! I'm amused, good lady.

But here's the deal: if my son can't tell his Kindergarten teacher the difference between a Stoli martini and a Grey Goose martini, I'll feel I've failed as a parent. Some things just shouldn't be left out of a boy's education. Like beer kegs.

Aren't the ghetto Meijers the best?! They are remodeling our ghettoiest Meijer, so all the other dilapidated ones around town are getting their carts in a twist and vying to be Grand Rapid's ghettoist Meijer.

TOO FUNNY! And yes please tell him there really isn't any good beer. Men drink anything.

BTW, Thanx for all the work you did on my projects! You ROCK!

My kids have said way worse!! My 5 year old was looking at a people magazine in a hospital waiting room a few weeks ago and was saying "douche bag, yep, he's a douche bag, oh she's definitely a douche bag" as she flipped through the pages. I have never been prouder or more horrified. So no worries ;)
