Muscle Car Mama

I have to brag here just a bit.  We were on the highway today and I...yes, me...nailed it in a game of "What cool car is that?" from quite a long distance away.  What was said car?  Well, my friends, it was a 1969 Camaro Z28.  Yes, my kids were impressed with my mad skills once they verified it on Google images.  (Let me take a moment to thank my high school boyfriend for educating me about important things such as this.  Who knew it would ever come in so handy.)

The following conversation ensued...

Little guy:  "I want a muscle car?"

Big guy:  "Why would you want an old car?"

Me and the little guy:  "They're cool!"

Big guy:  "I just want a regular newish car."

Little guy:  "I want a car like the one Michael Weston drives."  He's referring to a show called "Burn Notice" and the amazing car Michael drives is a beautiful 1973 Dodge Charger.

Me:  "OK, here's the deal, kid.  If you get a muscle car you have to do two things."

Little guy:  "What?"

Me:  "First you have to promise not to drive it too fast...ever.  And, second, you have to let me drive it."

Little guy:  "Deal."

...thinking I'm a really bad mom for kind of hoping my almost fifteen-year-old gets a muscle car.

Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
