"Mom, Mom, There is a SKANK in the pool!"
"Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dad was cleaning the pool and there was a SKANK in the pool!"
I smile a smile that only a mother of a PURE 10 year old boy can smile.
He is so excited!!! There was a SKANK in the pool after all!!!
I looked at him and laughed.
I said, "Tell your Dad that we discussed this a LONG TIME ago. NO SKANKS IN THE POOL!!!."
Zeek looked at me with a confused look on his face, but being the SOMEWHAT obedient boy he is he ran off saying , "DAD!!! Mom said to tell you that there are NO SKANKS allowed in the pool!!! She said she told you that A LONG TIME AGO!"
I peeked around the corner just in time to catch Jays face as Zeek finished talking.
It was priceless. We both started CRACKING UP LAUGHING!!!
He looked at both of us with a confused look on his face.
"Mom, I can TELL that it means SOMETHING. I can TELL."
" Zeek it is called a SKINK....not a SKANK. There is a BIG DIFFERENCE." I said trying to hide my laughter.
"What is the difference then?" he said innocently.
"Soon enough you will find out Boy." Jay said.
Sunshyne an I looked at each other and then Jay...we all LAUGHED OUT LOUD this time.
Soon enough Boy, soon enough.
