Yes, that's me. I'm such a "cool" mom.
Do you want to know why I'm so darn cool?
Because it's 2:00 a.m. and I just finished making Brielle a new dress to wear to school tomorrow for her awards program.
The kids are supposed to dress up, and we decided that it would be fun for her to have a new sun dress to wear.
Of course, if I had started the dress sooner than 10:00 p.m. I would have finished it sooner, and been asleep by now, but something keeps me from working before the sun goes down.
Anyway, the dress turned out really cute, and I would post pictures, but it's 2:00 a.m. and CJ is asleep, and he's the only one who knows how to get pictures downloaded onto my computer. The poor kid gets so annoyed every time I ask him to do that for me. The last time I asked, he looked at me with the face of a teenager that says "seriously mom, could you BE any more technologically inept?" and he said "Mom, you really need to learn how to do this yourself, because some day, I might be gone somewhere, and you'll need photos on the computer and you'll be stuck." to which I answer "You're here now, techno-boy, do your stuff!"
Anyway, back to the dress, as I'm sewing this lovely creation, trying not to burst out in fits of frustration, because I hate using patterns (HATE IT! HATE IT! HATE IT!!!)
But honestly Jill, how do you really feel about using patterns. Don't be shy, just tell the truth.
I strongly dislike using patterns. Probably has something to do with the fact that I don't like being told what to do.
Sorry, lost my train of thought. back to the dress.
As I was sitting there sewing, Brielle and Max were looking through a Prom Dress magazine. (Please don't ask me why I have a prom dress magazine. It's a long story)
Brielle was showing Max the pictures of the dresses, and she was trying to get Max to say "Is she hot?" (like Pedro says to Napoleon Dynamite when he's talking about his (fictitious) girlfriend.) You know, because it's really cute when little kids say stuff like that.
Finally, Max found a picture and said...............
"She also hot!"
Then while looking at a picture of two girls he said
"They also hot!"
(Turns the page)
"This one also colder"
Apparently, he didn't find her as attractive as the others. I felt kind of bad for the poor girl, I mean if you can't impress a three year old, who can you impress?
Then Max says
"I also hot too!"
Then looking back at the magazine....
"And these ones are also hotter!"
By now, we were giggling, because, seriously, this was pretty cute.
Did my darling little three year old just dis me???
I mean I will admit that I'm not in as great of shape as I was before I had the kids, but come on!
FOUR c-sections people! FOUR OF THEM!!!!!
The first one weighed over TEN POUNDS! 10.6 to be exact!
I have stretch marks up to my armpits!
Who does that little tot think he is...............cold am I?
Then it dawned on me.
I'm a "Cool" Mom!
(At least that's what I'm going to assume he meant)
