Paybacks

Getting old isn't always so bad. Yeah, there are aches and pains that I didn't used to have. Yes, gray hair and wrinkles aren't real attractive but I have no intentions of entering a beauty contest so who cares.
There's also the joy of paybacks. You know when your kids were younger and they would act up in the stores and make you crazy? Well when you get older you can take them out shopping and do crazy things to embarrass them. To demonstrate what I mean I took Amanda to Walmart last weekend and we played in the Christmas isle


Then I made it up to her by letting her bake me cookies when we got back to my house.

I think you did an outstanding job too. Payback is a delicious thing sometimes.

I have to give this a try. My son & his best friend have been kicked out of Wal-Marts for playing with the toys. Nothing destructive.
Teenagers! (he's a young adult now)
Knowing him he would love it and join right in.

Donna said...

Wow, what a sport - you let Amanda make you cookies. I dunno the things parents do for their kids. (My husband and I used to love embarrassing his kids with our "outlandish" behavior in public - moistly singing and dancing. He maintains that's one of a parents main responsibilities)

SweetMarie said...

You look so happy! Having fun is the key! I want those cookies...yummy!

Chatty Crone said...

Revenge is to live long enough to be trouble for your kids. Lol
sandie

Marg said...

Oh goodness those look good. That is not fair showing us those. Glad you all came to an agreement. Take care.

Lin said...

BeadedTail said...

I can laugh now when I see frustrated parents with kids.I miss it a bit until I get home after having a run ith the grandkids. i am a ham when shopping with friends or family.

allotments4you said...

I am still at the 'embarrass' my Mum stage Ann....and my kids too so I guess it works all the way round for me. Those cookies look wonderful!!

Whimcees said...

Hello!

Love, love, love this post! You are such a sweetheart! On a day when age and all of the things that come with it that are disheartening - you have made me laugh out loud! Wishing you a most wonderful and happy Thanksgiving with your family! I hope that Duke gets a treat! :<)

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

Now this sounds like my kind of fun...both the embarrassing the (adult) children and the eating of cookies parts!

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Alas, I can expect to still get my butt whooped when we get home after I have acted up in some store.

Sharkbytes said...

Love the antlers! I was just thinking about doing something silly with rabbit ears or something last night! The cookies look WAY too tempting.
