Yeah, so, the cashier at Target wished me a happy belated Mother’s Day today. I didn’t have the Spawn with me. How’d she know?
The items in my cart weren’t a giveaway. It was frozen Weight Watchers meals, paper towels and face wash. Maybe I just look like a mom now? I wasn’t wearing Mom Jeans, I swear.
Maybe the cashier just assumes every woman “of a certain age” is a mother. If so, it’s probably not a good thing to assume. Other things you shouldn’t assume: that woman is pregnant even if she looks pregnant. Seriously, you guys. Don’t do that. You’ll be sorry someday.
Oh, and by the way, when did Mother’s Day turn into something that dominated the entire weekend and the following day? Target put out its Mother’s Day decorations/cards right after Christmas. I’m a Mom, and I say one day is fine. I gave you life. You’re welcome. Thanks for the card. I don’t need the weekend or the entire week. That’s what my birthday is for.
So anyway, I think it’s time for The Boy to get a haircut. What do you think?
We’re putting it off. I know he’s going to cry, and I’m going to cry. Maybe I should hold off until it’s a massive blond ‘fro.
New subject … We have like six episodes of “Community” on the DVR. When we let things pile up like that it means we’ve clearly lost interest. It just wasn’t as funny this season. David told me to watch them without him while he is Philly for work. Should I even bother watching them? Are you guys watching “Community?” I need to make room on the DVR, because “So You Think You Can Dance” starts this week. Don’t you judge me! How dare you!
Oh, so, my almost 11-year-old niece Lorelei announced to me on Sunday that she doesn’t want to see “Star Wars.” I don’t know why she wanted to ruin my Mother’s Day. In response, I’m cutting her out of my will. I’m still deciding whether or not I want to talk to her anymore. Also, I’m a little surprised she hasn’t seen it already. I blame her parents.
I do think it’s funny that this is her way of rebelling: “I won’t watch ‘Star Wars!’ Take that, adults!” She’s just punishing herself by not watching one of the best movies of all time.
