Mom! STOP! You're embarrassing me! In WALMART!!!

Yes. I do that on occasion. Embarrass my kids. Sometimes intentionally ... sometimes not. This time, it was intentional :-)

Sunday afternoon. We're strolling through the toy aisles at Walmart (the mother's dream/nightmare store) and all of a sudden, I could hear the music ...

'Everybody was kung-fu fighting -HA!
Those cats were fast as lightning - Ha-YA!
In fact it was a little bit frightening - YAH!
But they fought with expert timing' - WACHAAAA!!

And it moved me. Much to the dismay of my boys. Especially Alec! It moved me from behind my cart filled with lunchtime snacks for the upcoming week, out to the middle of the aisle, somewhere between the WWE Wrestlers and the Hot Wheels ... Mama started Kung-Fu Fighting-dancing! WACHAAAA!!

"MOM! Stop that!"
"MOM!!! STOP!!! You're embarrassing me!"

'Whaaaaat?!?!?!? You've got a problem with your Mom Kung-Fu Fight-dancing in Walmart?'

Apparently he did.

The guy who turned the corner as I was shakin' the booty and giving a little HA-YA! seemed to get a kick out of it though ;-)

Then we were on to Electronics. They have different gaming stations set up. Both boys tried their hand at the Drums in Rockband for Wii. Then I had a turn. Apparently MORE embarrassment for The Boy. They left me! Just walked (slunk) away! Left me bangin' solo and getting funny looks from the 'walmart people'!!!!

Probably cause I was kickin' their butts on those drums!!!!

Just wait! He hasn't had his first REAL girlfriend yet. That boy is in for a whole BOATLOAD of embarrassment ... courtesy of ... Mom ;-)

'Everybody was kung-fu fighting -HA!

Those cats were fast as lightning - Ha-YA! .......

Have a great day all!

Connor recently asked me to download that song from iTunes. Can you believe that? I think you're a cool mom. But that's coming from another mom whose kid doesn't think she's so cool.

Thanks Danie :-)

Funny ... at the time, I thought of you. Or one of your sayings anyway "Mama's flying her freak flag!!!" LOL

I'm hoping to regain my Cool status when I take them to see the WWE wrestlers this weekend at Wrestlemania Revenge! WooHoo!!! I'm not sure who's more excited to see The Undertaker ... the boys, or ME!!! ;-) And that Batista Dude ... he can Batista Bomb me ANYDAY! ;-)

I told the boys about this post tonight. Alec has since informed me that it was a drumset for the xbox 360. Not the wii.

I'm SO uncool. ;-)

We've warned our daughter to behave or she will 'get it' once she's a teenager! *evil embarrassing mother laugh*
