Who am I?

“I’m the girl next door who’s hidden away; sneaking any chance there is, to read or write. I only appear in public when the fridge is empty or when someone is brave enough to seek my company.” ~M

 

And now I ask… Who are you?

Extraordinary…

Sigh….. If only there were more Erma Bombecks in this world.  She was an extraordinary woman and I miss her.  ~M

#MidnightMadness – 10/18/2017

For health class today, we were discussing attitudes between children and their parents.  We had to read a cartoon about a girl and her mother having a fight and then learned how they resolved their conflict.

I said to my girls… “I think it’s really great that I hardly ever have any conflict with you girls.  You always seem to do what you’re told and I never seem to have a problem with either one of you.”

Then I decided to ask them why they always behave so well.

Brianna said, “Because mom… we know better than to get you upset with us.”

I said, “Why, do I rule with an iron fist?”

Brianna said, “Yes mom, you really do, but at least you rule us with a cute, adorable, iron fist.

Such a sweet talker she is!  Lol…  😉

A few weeks ago an embarrassing thing happened.  My 15 yr old daughter asked me to show her how to upload pictures to Twitter.  So being the nice mom that I am, I, of course, said yes, and promptly went to grab my phone to show her how to do it.

Unfortunately, I failed to remember that a few hours earlier, I had sent my husband a rather naughty photo of myself, and so when I went to show my daughter how to upload pictures to Twitter from my photo album, that naughty photo was on full display.

As soon as I realized it, I quickly pulled the phone away from her view and tried my best to act as unflustered as I could.  She, of course, looked down at the floor, face bright red, trying so hard not to laugh hysterically.  When she finally looked up at me a minute later, she said, “Well mom, at least it wasn’t a naked picture of grandma!  That would have been so much worse!”

Oh, I had to laugh at her response.  Because of course, having naked pictures of grandma on my phone is a natural thing!  Not!!!

Then my husband walks in, and says what’s going on?  I whispered to him what had just happened, and then in a very loud voice, he says… “Oh, which one did she see?”  I about died all over again, and my daughter, of course, started laughing hysterically.  I tell you, it’s never a dull moment at our house.  I’m going to go hang my head in shame now.  Lol….
