Pa rum pum pum pum

I’m very fortunate in that I have amazing in-laws. They’re kind, supportive, and understanding; they accept me and all of my many flaws annoying habits quirks. They raised one heck of a man who I get to call my husband, and they don’t override my parenting decisions, even though some could probably use a little grandparent-TLC.  They’re incredibly good to my kids, and I don’t think I could function without my mother-in-law’s help in particular. However, they are now on MY LIST. And this is why:

Drums

I don’t know what I’ve done to upset or offend them. Clearly it was something awful. My kid knows the words to “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and “Get Off of my Cloud” and if I have to hear the percussion version of either one more time, I’m going to jab my ear drums with steak knives.

If you’re reading this, dear in-laws, just tell me what I have to do to make it right. If this is revenge for stealing away your son, I’ll give him back. I’ll dress him in his best sweater vest (he just got a fancy argyle one from Santa…), put a bow on his head, and send him drum-drum-drumming all the way home.

  1. My kids got a guitar and a microphone. Let’s go all momager on them and start a band. At the very least we might get a reality show 🎤🎵🎸

  2. LoL…my parents did stuff like that to us! They said it was paying it forward for what they had to deal with. Whatev! My dad once sent a Chicken Dance Elmo doll…plus a whole set of batteries so we couldn’t tell the boys they were dead!! I can, to this day, still sing that blankety-blank song! 😦 I hope they get to enjoy the music one day soon too. 😉 Happy New Year!
