It’s the Great Parental Fail, Charlie Brown!


Picture it. The girl and I had just snuggled up together to watch a beloved holiday special for, presumably, the 12th year in a row when this happened.

* * * * * * * *

HER: “Why does Susan keep moving the football and messing up his kick?”

ME: “Who??”

HER: “SUSAN!!” (exasperated) “Or whatever her name is.”

ME: (surprised) “You don’t know her NAME?”

HER: “Nope. Guess not.”


HER: “Oh. That sounds a lot like Susie.”

ME: “What the … Who the heck is Susie??”

HER: “The little blonde girl. You know, the one who likes Linus.”

ME: (dumbfounded) “You mean Sally??”

HER: “That’s right. Sally. Sounds like Susie to me.”

ME: “So … you thought two of the Peanuts character names were SusAN and SusIE?”

HER: “What??? At least I know Linus and Charlie Brown. Oh, and Dirt Bag!”

ME: (under my breath) “Oh, my God.” (flabbergasted) “DIRT BAG?!!?”

HER: “Yeah. You know, the dirty kid. What’s his name again?”

ME: (pulling my hair out) “It’s Pig Pen. PIG!!! PEN!!! How do you not KNOW this?”(chastising myself) “I feel like I’ve failed you as a mother.”

HER: (laughing at me) “It’s fine, Mom. As long as I know Snoopy, right? … And Woodchuck.”

Me: (face-palm)

Is she doing this on purpose?

  7. Well I mean…he is a bit of a dirt bag. I think I like her names better.

  8. My teenage girl started forgetting the names of people all the time (Aunts and Uncles included). I have been chalking it up to hormones. It could also be a power trip because she knows it aggravates me and what better than to aggravate your mother when you are a teenager?
    Dirt Bag – HA.
