Sometimes my kids annoy the FUCK out of me! Don’t get me wrong, I’m so in love with them. I’m proud of them, and I think they’re super fun. But just once I’d like them to just root for me. Most of the time they do, but sometimes I just want to say why don’t you like me? I’m not the typical momma. Hell when my daughter first starting bringing friends home form college we’d all have drinks. And to welcome them into the fold we always, always drank a shot of good tequila together. Of course I drank mine straight with no lime or salt, because I’m not a PUSSY! Thank God I’ve quit drinking because I on more than one occasion I have gotten completely wasted and made an ass of myself. Now I just make an ass of myself when I’m sober. It’s way more fun when I can remember doing it! But I digress….
So Meg sends me this link to the tv show True Life from Mtv called My Mom is Hot! I thought it was funny till she told me she and her brother thought I acted like the blonde bimbo that had tits the size of basketballs. The woman was an embarrassment to herself and her children and definitely needed some intensive therapy. I may act a fool and embarrass my kids but I do it for my enjoyment and not for attention. I could be in a store and standing in the humorous card section laughing like a hyena. Or I’m singing show tunes in public in front of my kids. Or dancing and singing while working the floor at Petco. Or in a dark bar watching women take off their clothes at a burlesque show. Burlesque shows are super fun by the way. Go to one! We’ll discuss it in another post…. Hey don’t judge me! I’m free, sorta young and enjoying life…..
So back to the origin of the post. I told my daughter that I was hurt by the comparison. That I didn’t act like that and I certainly wouldn’t desecrate my body the way that woman did. I also said that I’m 43, thin, healthy, and happy. I asked that she and her brother find out how a woman my age should act and let me know. I will then be sure to do the exact opposite of that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She called me and told me to chill out. That she was actually just saying that my tits were that HUGE, even though in reality they are so not. She said when she and Adam were watching it, they both looked at each other and said wow that could be our mom! So I guess if they find me funny, that’s a good thing. If they find me embarrassing, that’s A-okay too. But thankfully they don’t find me to be a train wreck anymore. And that’s a VERY, VERY good thing.
