Now that the boys are all grown up, (Matt is 28 and Andrew is 26) what’s it like camping with them?

Andrew: Nice shirt bro. When’s the rodeo?

Matt: Shut up.

Andrew: Shut up? That’s the best the “Come Back King” can do? “Shut up?”  Not going to lie. Disappointed in you, Matt. Oh! Muuuaahhmmmmmmm! Matt gave me the finger.

Shelley: Matthew!

Matt: I didn’t. He’s lying. What the…?? Mom! Andrew gave me the finger.

Shelley: Andrew!

Andrew: He’s the one who’s lying. Matt’s just trying to get me into trouble because I’m your favourite. Hey! Mom! He did it again.

Shelley: Matthew!

Matthew: Mom, I swear I wouldn’t do that. Andrew’s jealous that he didn’t get to spend an entire week of the summer alone with you. Just you and him, like I did. An entire week. The best entire week of my summer. A week I can never get back. (Clic here to check out But I’m Your Mother to see how it really went.)

Andrew: Spending a week with mom was the best part of the summer? Not my wedding? What a…

Ash famMatt: Best entire week ever. You have no idea what you missed. Right mom? Annnndreeeeuuw! Mom!  He does it when you’re not looking. Tell him to stop.

Shelley: Oh Jesus! Both of you! Put a cork in it.

John: Bottle it up right now.

Matt: Yeah Andrew. Stop your whining.

Andrew: I’m not good at this game. I don’t know what I’m doing.

Matt: Kevin Bacon.

Andrew: Not him.

Matt: Samuel Jackson.


Matt: That’s not a line from that movie or how this game’s played. It’s like Pulp Fiction in here.

Andrew: Yo! Yo! Be careful because I’m in Training Day. Yo! Yo!

Matt: That’s Denzel Washington. Denzel Washington and Samuel Jackson are not the same person.

Andrew: Stupid F#$%ing game. Give me another one.

Matt: Steve Buscemi.

Andrew: Oh man I am so happy. Going Back to School makes me so happy.

Matt: No. That’s Billy Madison.

Andrew: Oh. I feel trapped, like I’m on Con Air?

Matt: Yeah. You got it.

Andrew: Bam! There it is. I knew that was definitely the one. For sure. Without a doubt.

Andrew Bam

Matthew: Tom Hanks.

Andrew: Would really have liked to have some garlic shrimp tonight, huh, Bubba?

Matt: Nope.

Andrew: What about Dancin’ Dan? Close?

Matt: Pretty close.

John: Enough. Time for bed. We need to get up at 7:00. Matt, I’ll show you my new clear sewage pipe attachment in the morning.

Matt: Holy S#$TTT!  How lucky am I?

Andrew: Wait. What about me? I feel like the black sheep of the family, a Castaway. WILSON!!!!!! Right?

Shelley, John, Matt: Right. You’ve got it. Good night Andrew.

Andrew: I’ve done so many of these I don’t know if you can Catch me if You Can. Oh! Ha! Ha! Ha! Now I’m finally part of the family. I’m Big. It’s almost as good as the time I saved Private Ryan. Heh. Heh. Heh. Like the battle where it was Joe Versus the Volcano. Having a hard time sleeping, like when I was Sleepless in Seattle. Are you guys having a hard time sleeping?

Shelley, John, Matt: ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Andrew: Boo Ya! I finally got the hang of this game. I’ve cracked The Da Vin Ci Code. Take an actor’s name, think of a movie he’s in and make a pun out of the title.  YEsssssssssss!!!!!!! Matt, give me another one.

Shelley, John, Matt: ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz….

Andrew: Mom?

Shelley, John, Matt: ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz….

Andrew: Dad?

Shelley, John, Matt: ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz….

Andrew: Fine. I know you’re all awake. I won’t play the game any more. Instead, I’ll tell you all a bedtime story. It’s the one I told when I was four years old. Now Goldilocks was good and mad when she was let out of prison. Pissed to be exact. Four years for Breaking and entering!?!?!?!? What a joke. First thing she was going to do was teach  those three bears a lesson. One they would never forget

  1. That picture of your son with dad in a head lock reminds me of my boy and husband. Too cute. I figured they will be doing that move for a long long time, which keeps my husband working out so he doesn’t pass out too fast! 😛
