It’s a Gas

My kids have embarrassed me a lot.  I know it’s supposed to be the other way around and it’s possible that I have skipped in the supermarket and walked down the aisle at Home Depot with my hand in my husband’s back pocket just to get my tween daughter all worked up.

But, I have never turned their faces red in church.

A couple of weeks ago, my son not only applauded after the priest finished his homily, but my daughter also leaned over and whispered loudly, “Mom, your roots are really dark.”

But, even they can’t trump what my husband did in church when he went rummaging through my purse looking for mints and instead pulled out a package of Beano.

    My Dad once fell asleep and started snoring, LOUDLY, in the middle of Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.

    It’s amazing what comes out in church, isn’t it? 😀

    Oh, we could do a lot worse here than Beano… *snerk*

    That is classic, but my favorite part is the applause!

    Ah… family. Can’t live with them, can’t sell them.

    I’m so sorry, I’m laughing, but that’s EXACTLY what you will find in MY purse too!

    When we were little, my sister stood on a pew during the priest’s sermon and yelled “Get on with it!”

    The hardest thing about beano – buying it. that’s why I’ve never tried it. Does it really work? Can we share some next time we hang out? It’s like high school, but with more practical drugs.

    Love it!!

    Couple years ago, in a very small, small-town chapel on Easter Sunday, when the priest sat down after the Homily, Monster Man who was 4-1/2 yelled out, ‘That guy don’t know it’s EASTER!!’ I near died right there.

    If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some people have more than one child
