I'm Just Not Cool Anymore...

I love my kids... I really do.. but that did not stop me from doing the "They're going back to school dance" this morning.. My kids were driving me nuts!! The tattling, the I'm bored, the can I play on your computer (while I'm working on it), and the music.. the loud loud music..... When I was a kid - music was good... The Bee Gees, Adam Ant, and The Police.. you could understand the lyrics and you could sing a long... But with this new hip hop and who ever heard of Lady Ga Ga.....I can't understand a word.. am I sounding like my betcha...
Today, I realized I'm not cool anymore.. I had the bad judgment to pick up my kids from school without any makeup on and my hair piled on top with a clip.. The look of horror on my oldest kid's face..wish I had a camera! Today in Southern California it was 107 degrees... You could not pay me enough to put on makeup and style my the wicked witch in the Wizard Oz said.."I'm melting......
While my oldest acted like she did not know me... my youngest came up to me and gave me a fish face kiss and said, "I love you, Mommy".. That just made my day! So, I'm thinking I'm still cool for maybe another two more years with my eleven year least I hope so.


  1. I'm sorry you have lost your cool status. I can tell you that after they get married, you get cool again!

  2. Great post! Yes I agree with Mari.... At some point they do come back around.
    (BTW- Thanks for stopping by too)

  3. I enjoy your post here and thanks for stopping by :-)have fun with your kids.

  4. If it makes you feel better, I have never been cool and I am sure I embarrass my kids already and the oldest is only 5!

  5. Luckily my son still thinks I'm the bees knees.
    He just turned one.
    I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. LOL
