Weekend Confessions – 2

Oh, this week the confession will not disappoint. I promise.

Last Saturday evening we received a call from the Raleigh police department.

Letting us know that they had our son in custody for shoplifting at Belk.

I was, and still am, in shock.

Lord help this kid. This kid who actually has a plan for his future. And, he goes and does something like this.

He’s fine, as fine as can be under the circumstances. He’s walking around with less electronics to his name & sentenced to hard labor around the house.

We go to court next Tuesday.

What I learned from this so far…

  • That no matter how many times you tell your children what to do and not to do, what is right and what is wrong, ultimately they are going to make their own choices, good or bad, right or wrong, and you can only hope for the best.
  • And, cops really like it when you threaten your children with bodily harm for acting like a douche bag. So, the next time your kid threatens to call the cops when you’re disciplining them – well, just offer to dial the police station while you knock them upside the head.

    That stinks in a huge way and I’m so sorry. We have a teenage son too. Have mercy!

    Dad and I were talking, after this happened, about the times you and your sister used, the “get out of jail free” card, Dad’s badge. Of course, you two had very minor infractions.
