Hello everyone, hope your morning is running smoothly. Before you read any further I must advise you to read with caution, especially if you have a weak stomach. 😄 🤣
I was sound asleep this morning dreaming of fluffy clouds and unicorns. (Not really but it sounded good) My teenage son walks into my room and wakes me up.
He wakes me up to inform me the brand new gallon of milk was junky and stunk terribly.
I wake up, look at him, half asleep and say, “Really son? You wake me up on a Saturday morning, bright and early, out of a deep sleep, to tell me about spoiled milk?” His reply, “Yea cause it stinks really bad mom and there’s junks in the microwave. Can you clean it up?”
Junks in the microwave? I didn’t even want to know what that was about haha 🤮 But he explained it to me anyway.
Apparently he was trying to surprise me by making a pot of coffee. He then decided to fancy it up a bit for me, sorta give it a cappuccino type taste. I actually prefer a regular cup first thing in the morning, but I really appreciated his thoughtfulness.
So here’s the thing. I totally understand not wanting to clean that type of mess. Spoiled milk has a disgusting puke worthy smell, and the thought of junks at 6am really can be nauseating. But did he really think I would want to clean it? Did he really feel it was necessary to wake me up?
Apparently he did. Did I get up and clean it? Ummm yes, yes I did. And, did I make him stand next to me and enjoy the aroma like I had to? Yes I sure did.
Normally he will clean his own mess and if he doesn’t I make him. However, since he was originally trying to do something nice for me, and since I wanted the mess to be cleaned properly, I got out of bed and cleaned it.
Why am I sharing this with all of you? To be perfectly honest, I have no idea. But, I will say this:
My son is 13 years old. Most teenagers don’t like spending time with their parents. My son does. And even though he can be a brat, and act like a typical teenager, I do feel blessed and I am grateful that he woke up early on a Saturday morning to make me coffee, all so I would wake up early. And why did he want me to wake up early on a Saturday morning? Because he wanted to spend the day with me.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend.
