I'll definitely take that as a compliment




It's me, Jill, coming to you here from the bathroom where just off to the left Porter and Gus are having a squirt gun fight in the bathtub.  Well actually, more like Porter is squirting Gus' butt and Gus is saying "stop".  

And yes, I'm sitting on the toilet.

Anyway, 

so today, a very smart, 10 year old girl that I was taking home from school (PS she's really my sister's babysitting kid,  but my sister was home throwing her guts up, so me, being the helpful sister that I am, picked up the kid for her.)...where was I now?  

Oh yeah, the bright little girl informed me that I am a Mom Mom.  You're probably wondering what exactly a Mom Mom is right?  I know I was.  So she says a Mom Mom is short.  Alright, I'm 5'0".  A Mom Mom carries a purse like mine.  Uh huh.  A Mom Mom wears bright colors and necklaces.

A Mom Mom wears flats.

And here's the real kicker.  A Mom Mom is very "efficient in taking care of her kids".  She really said that.

This girl just read me like a book.  Am I right?!

She went on to tell me that just because someone isn't a Mom Mom, doesn't mean they aren't a good mom or a great mom.  Like her mom is a great mom, but she's not a Mom Mom because she isn't short.

I guess we can't all be Mom Moms.

3 witty remarks:

Next time you see her, ask her what is the name for a mom who is
5'4, wears flats, takes very efficient care of her kids and hardly ever wears bright colors or necklaces and rotates between the 3pairs of jeans that fit.

I don't know what's funnier, the fact that I am mom mom too or that you have little mermaids hanging out with the guns and ammo magazines. Your mermaids would feel right at home in our bathroom :)
