I’m forever living my motto “If you can’t be a good example, be a horrible warning”
Yesterday at lunch, we were eating leftover goulash. Joe was examining the Parmesan cheese and asked if he could shake it up to try to break up some of the clumps.
Mark and I both made noises to the effect of sure, but make sure the lid is closed tightly. He checked it and then started shaking it gently side to side. Of course, this was doing nothing, so I decided to show him how to really do it.
So I grabbed the container and started shaking it up and down as hard as I can. ( I can barely type this, I’m laughing so hard.)
The stunned silence was priceless.
The Parmesan Cheese was EVERYWHERE. I even had it in my hair.
I tried to tell the boys that this was a good lesson for them about WHY you needed to make sure the lid was on tight. The response was basically “Well, Mom, we didn’t learn anything other than you are certifiable. Maybe YOU need to learn to make sure the lid is on tight.”

ROFLOL! Did you make the boys clean up after that comment?
I can just picture it. Priceless.

I’m having a Monday, so thanks for that laugh or should I say cry. The picture I have in my head is priceless. Have a GREAT monday!
Thanks for the marvelous chuckle this morning – the picture in my mind is priceless. Whoops! I see someone already said that – and I concur!
Too funny Suzanne. I can actually picture it.

That little visual made me laugh…. cheese in hair…that could be a problem… I’ll bet the boys will remember that the rest of their life! too funny! Hope you (and your hair) have recovered.
I have tears!!! Thanks for the LAUGH!!!

I think this one needs to be put into one of your heirloom scrapbook pages… ROFLOL!!! Might as well, as you’ll never live it down!!
The picture you’ve painted is hysterical (with the boys’ delighted laughter in the background). Times like this make great (fun) memories……I think your family will be laughing about this one for a very long time.
LOL Suzanne… very funny!
Fifteen years from now your boys will be sitting around with their families and saying, “Remember the time Mom ended up with cheese in her hair?” It’ll be a great story!
WOW, thank you. I needed that. After just being on my knees cleaning up the rice that Colin spilled on the floor. Rice is impossible to clean up. It was particularly annoying because the housekeeper came today so it was a spotless floor and we have a showing tomorrow and I can never get the floors as clean as she does… Booo

Thanks for the laugh tonight, Suzanne. My husband just called to me from another room and wants to know what’s so funny. I shook some hot sauce one time; it ended up on the walls and even the ceiling. : )
Wish your boys had caught you on camera!
