Last week I told Vins that I wanted to take him and some of his friends out for lunch during Easter break. I carry around a lot of guilt when it comes to his social life. I don’t make as much effort as some mums make when it comes to arranging playdates and having his friends over to our place. We just kind of wait until he’s invited somewhere. This is not good, I know. And I need to step up my game a bit.
Anyway, so as I was telling him about the lunch thing and he stopped me mid-sentence. The following conversation ensued:
Vins: Mama, mama – wait. Just wait. On Wednesday X has invited me for a bros lunch.
Me (unsure if I heard correctly): Oh. What’s a bros lunch?
Vins: You know! A bros lunch!
Me (trying not to laugh): Vins, I don’t know what a bros lunch is!
Vins (getting impatient): Mama – you know we’re all best friends, right? Well, this is lunch with all the best friends together!
Me: Ohhhhhhh. Okay, that sounds good!
Seriously – where does he learn this stuff?
