It's Thursday and I have some random thoughts. So, here it is... Random Thought Thursday
-Even though I am extremely jealous that I wont get to have the normal experiences that typical parents of typical kids have (full disclosure), I have found one that I'm okay skipping. I know dance classes and recitals are rites of passage for typical little girls and I know it's a source of great pride for many moms but I'm very uncomfortable seeing the photos that many moms (yes, my friends) post on FB of their little girls (six and under) all dressed up and with so much make up on. Can't help but think these pics could be pedophile porn or Bratz dolls. That's all I am going to say about that and thats the nicest way I can say it.
-I have friends of all different ages. Always have. Two weeks ago I went to a surprise party for a friend's 50th. Last weekend I went to a party for someone a little bit younger than I am. Greg and I noticed loud cheers coming from the garage- they were playing beer pong!! We used to call is quarters (when I was your age...). I suddenly felt like I was in the middle of a CW teen drama; I mean, one set in the midwest. But at least I looked good doing it.
Last weekend my kid got her first tattoo. And to think I waited until I was 15 (but if my dad is reading this, then it was actually 21 and I was fully self supporting). But actually the bird's tattoo was from a face painting booth (don't touch my face, but you can draw on our arms) at our local Relay For Life event to benefit the American Cancer Society. I let her choose from the picture board and she immediately pointed to the cupcake, "I want tuptate" (she has a tough time pronouncing the "k" sound). Once it was done and I was speaking with my cutesy mommy voice saying, "look, honey, you got a cupcake!!" She looked at it, then looked at me and said, "I want EAT tuptate!" We thanked the "artist" and went on our way with Little Bird confused and pissed!!
I've found quite a few things in the laundry machine over the years. Usually a dollar here or there, tissues, gum wrappers, etc. Today I opened the machine and found my lip gloss. Hope the watermelon flavor is still intact. Priorities!!
