The Cool New Holiday

Bug: Mom, I'm going to get Jock (insert random thing he thinks his brother wants here.... I don't remember what it was, and it really has no bearing on the story, so just roll with it) that he wants. You know, for Brother's Day.

Me: Um, Brother's Day? Are you inventing your own holiday?

Bug: Yep. A Brothers and Sisters Day. You know... a BS Day.

Me: .....laughing so hard there are tears, because really? That holiday would totally be a favorite at my house with my boys!...... Um, dude.... if you only knew why I think that's so funny!

Bug: I do! You're laughing 'cuz it sounds like (whispering) B.S..... the swear word!


Bug: Mom, you don't know me nearly as well as you think you do!

Me: Or really? Dude, I'd bet I know you better than you think I do! Wanna test me?

Bug: Ok. Do I like girls? (now really.... did he need to start with that one? Can't he just let me pretend he doesn't know they exist?)

Me: Well, they're ok as friends, but not for anything else. (Can YOU hear the hopeful note in there? I think he missed that.)

Bug: .... laughing.... Mayyyybbeeee...

Me: What? (sounding all sorts of pretend shocked).... Are you thinking of kissing on some girl?

Bug: (giving me the grin that the men in my family have apparently patented... the one guaranteed to make me smile and forget that we're discussing something I'd rather not) Maayyyyybe..... maybe not. But the point is that (dramatic pause here) .... YOU DON'T KNOW! Which means I win! You don't know me as well as you think you do!


So my question is.......

Was today B.S. Day and I missed it?

TOO cute! BS day! how fun would that be? OY! ultra scary at my house. hmm sounds something like Christmas! yeeesh! i don't need another of those days every year. of course boys wanting an older brothers approval would think it was the best idea ever!

Definitely BS day and you missed it. It's akin to April Fool's Day, right? :) Kudos to your Bug.

In my house every day is B.S. day.

Too cute.

Another reason to not like my brother! He didn't get me a present for BS Day.

I just love Bug!! I want a BS day present too!!

Wanna know something weird? I have a brother who might not get the (whispered)bad word reference. No lie.
