The little thief! - edited so my daughter won't hate me anymore

Today I was at my daughter's 8th grade graduation because, in the words of Mr. Incredible, "They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity." I mean, it's great that she "graduated" from 8th grade, but seriously?? And it's not even like she'll go to a different school. All three schools are under the SAME ROOF! Next year she only has to walk about 20 extra feet further from the house.

Anyway, after a 3 hour torture of sitting through EVERY.SINGLE.AWARD.POSSIBLE. (none of which went to my daughter) they finally got to the graduation part. Pamela was in the 2nd row, so I knew she would be toward the beginning (which was also good because I had to get the heck out of there for yet another thing I was late for!).

Just as they announced that graduation was to begin, Blaise vanished. I didn't worry too much about it, I mean where's he going to go? But just as Pamela's row stood up, he returned. With a juice. From the cafeteria. Which he did not pay for.

When I told Pamela about it, she was all "How did he do that?" asked in a tone like "I haven't been able to figure out how to steal from the cafeteria and my two year old brother figures it out in a day."

(And for the curious few who want to know what happened next, a lovely sweet neighbor of mine went back and paid for the drink so that I could stay and watch my daughter "graduate".)


  1. I know what you mean, I recently sat through a pre-school graduation! When my daughter "graduated" from 8th grade, there were some parents that rented limos to take them to McDonald's afterwards, ridiculous!!!

  2. Awesome. I wanna take him drinking with me, he can swipe some vodka to go with the juice.

  3. Lisa,
    The preschool graduation is next week:).

    He actually steals ALL THE TIME. He' a little kleptomaniac. He'd totally go drinking with you and he's so short they'd never catch him.

  4. Can I take your kid to the bank with me?

  5. your two year old might be stealing a different kind of juice at the next graduation you go to...

    Ummm... re: broken jaw to extract tooth.

    holy SHIT.

  6. Tell Pamela thank you for her comment about Addison looking like a model.

    OMG!!! Little Blaise is cracking me up. That was sweet of your neighbor to help you out.


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
