My boys and I went to a bridal shower the other night where they were the only children there. Being church kids, they're okay with that. Overall, the boys were very well-behaved and impressed the kid-less hostess who, I think, was a bit concerned about their presence. So, here are my favorite "proud" parent moments from the event.
First, Stephen devoured his first margherita cupcake. He was not going to be deterred, and as the alcohol was in the batter, I figured it cooked it's way out.
Second, Garrett graciously helped the hostess re-fill the beer tub with bottles of Bud Light Lime.
And finally, my favorite, as the adults were in the living room while the couple opened gifts, my boys climbed up to sit on the bar stools opposite the kitchen counter. The hostess and my mother-in-law were behind the counter cleaning up when Garrett slapped his hands down on the counter/bar and declared, "What does a guy have to do to get a drink in this place?" (Thank you Shrek 3).
My head swam with different ways I could handle the situation until finally I gave a hysterical laugh and said, "That's the preacher's kid!!"
Blessings and Peace,
