Ack -- That Talk Already?

So, the kid and I are making brownies so I can see if I remember the recipe right bf I post it on delagar cooks when somehow (heh) the subject of pot comes up.

The kid says, "But you never did drugs, did you?"

Me: .....

The kid: "Did you?  You didn't, did you?"

Me: ....

The kid: "Mo-o-o-om!"

Me: "It was when  I was a lot younger. And --"  I try to think of something else.

The kid: "What kind of drugs?"

Me: "Well, mainly marijuana. But--"

The kid: "Did you like it?"

Me: "Well, yes.  But--"

The kid: "Mom!"

Me: "But you probably wouldn't.  So..."

The kid: "How do you know?"

Me: "Well, you're more like your daddy than me.  And pot always made him paranoid, so--"

The kid: "Dad smoked drugs too?"

Me: "Um, well, see, the point here --"

The kid: "Did you do any other drugs?"

Me: "The point here--"

The Kid: "You did, didn't you?  What other drugs?  Which?"

Me: "The point--"

The kid:  (severely) "You're a terrible role model, Mom."

Me: (laughing helplessly by this point): "I knew there was a point here somewhere."

Your mission is accomplished. You talked to your kid about drugs. And it went well. Good for you!

Yeah, that reminds me of when my kids found out that I had sex more than twice. Imagine that. IN fact, a few weeks ago, my grandson says, Nana, you gonna have a baby. I said, not unless there are wise men in the east and a whole hell of a lot of sheperds and a freaking star and...my son says, see, I told you they don't do it. My dauther in law laughs, and I say, do what? sex? I do sex? I just meant that the miracle would be cause I don't have a uterus. Yeah. Kids.
