You might be a Beta Mom if....

You consider an evening at Medieval Times an "educational field trip".

Eating with your hands has to account for something...

Of course it does, creative-type dad, as does the donning of the traditional pagan paper crown.

i think you need to write a song...instead of stacey's mom, it should be:

Beta Mom's got it going on....

Of course it is. Just like my kids learned all about the Civil War and life in the South at the Dixie Stampede (same thing, different historical period)

I think a kid can learn a lot at Medieval Times. Like, "Look, that's what happen when you graduate college, and the only thing on your resume is 4 summers at Ye Olde Renaissance Faire."

Or even what "happens" with an "s."

I really shouldn't drink this early.

Pass the turkey leg!

Medieval Times? Dixie Stampede? Renaissance Fairs? That's how I spent my early adolescent years. And it is educational. Really!

A story about Medieval Times: each section of the stadium is assigned a knight to cheer for throughout the evening & you're highly encouraged to trash talk the opposing knights. Well, I chose to do just that at a key moment in the jousting competition. I was so excited & moved by the crowd's energy that I decided to scream at the top of my lungs. Not "beat him" or "you go, knight" but "STRIP HIM! KILL HIM!" And I did so at the exact moment that the rest of the crowd fell silent. Everyone in the stadium turned to stare at me. Believe me, it was a pivotal moment in my 12-year-old life.

Thanks Mike! Of course, in my case, it would be Beta Mom almost sometimes nearly but sometimes not at all has it going on.

Jenster - The Dixie Stampede - that's awesome. I asuume it's an educational experience about the "war of northern aggression"?

Jeff Mac - So sad, but true.

Mrs. Joy - ripping meat off giant turkey leg - so primal and yet satisfying!

Megan - so sweet and demure...who knew you had it in you!
