The Golf Outfit

Tommy asked, “Can I try on my new outfit?”

I went, “Of course!” I had been wanting to try it on him to make sure it fit. I bought it at, where else, Gymboree.





Tommy asked, “Is this like a golf outfit?”

I went, “Yes, it is.”





Tommy asked, “Can I golf someday?”

I went, “Sure. You’ll have to go with your Dad though because I have no idea how to golf. I don’t know a golf club from another. Maybe I need to re-watch Happy Gilmore to remind myself.” (The price is WRONG, bitch.)





Tommy asked, “Can I be a golfer and a swimmer?”

I went, “You can be whatever you want to be.”





Tommy asked, “Can I be a golfer like that Lion Woods guy?”

I went, “It’s Tiger Woods and maybe one day you’ll be as good as him. But I’d rather you not act like him.”





Tommy asked, “What does that mean?”

I hesitated. I didn’t think using the term “man whore” was appropriate for a seven year old.

So I went, “He just made some poor choices.”






Tommy asked, “Like when I asked what French kissing was at Target?”

I went, “That was a poor choice, yes. Let’s not ever do that again, okay?”





Tommy asked, “My friend got French kissed, you know.”

I went, “You’re seven! You’re not to French kiss for many, many years.”

Tommy asked, “Like when I’m twenty five?”

I went, “Yes. Perfect.”

  1. Long story short, a stranger came to my house with her 9 or 10 year old son. She had absolutely NO CONTROL over the boy whatsoever. He was dashing around my apartment when all of a sudden he was playing my boyfriend's harmonica. I made that kid believe there was so much germ-ware on that thing that he looked absolutely traumatized.

  2. Awww. He's so cute in his golf wear. Much better looking (and better behaved) than Tiger.

  4. You know this already, but I have to say it again: HE IS SO CUTE! The shot where he's tipping his visor is like a professional modeling shot....
    Clearly you have some talent as a stylist and photographer, too.

  18. Who french kisses a 7 year old?! Wait. I don't want to know. I think I asked my folks what that was when I was 12. That conversation did not go well.

    Tommy's a doll. He needs to go play miniature golf in that outfit! Take shots of him on the course! Lol.

  45. He is a sharp lookin' golfer! I hope he plays as well as Lion Wood someday - imagine him paying for your retirement years when you are only 35? :)

    p.s., ...and imagine using the money to get advanced toilet training treatments for the other lil' one.
