I am so far behind on blogging that I am having to go waaaay back to pics from before Easter!! Yes! That long ago. I actually have a ton of pics loaded and ready for me to tell my stories, so now they just need me to sit down and do them!! Let's start with this random post, shall we?
Well, Paula kind of makes fun of me for my lack of empathy. I mean, I love people. Like, really, really, really love people. And anyone who knows me well knows that I'd give them the shirt off my back. And my patients would tell you that I love their kids like their my own kids. BUT...
I also have a pretty big streak of "put your big girl panties on and deal with it"! So, when Paula was leaving her firstborn, John, at LSU for what would be the last mother/son something or another with his fraternity, she knew that calling me would probably not get her the sympathy she was looking for. So... she previewed her cries for my attention and pity by sending me this little graphic. I thought it was epic!
And her response was , "Yes, actually. Thank you!"
Nothing like a big ol dose of reality!
Don't get me wrong, I love being an involved mom. But, I DID start very late in life!! I was 38 and 39 when I became a mom to my girls. So, the math is just that... math. I will be almost 60 when we are headed to high school graduation. That's crazy to me!! (JinJin is 66 now. And I am 45. When I am 66, I may just be going to my kids' medical school graduation. haha)
NOPE! She never even flenched. In fact. Wouldn't even look my way!
ANd Ellie Sue was just pleased as punch to get to break out the between the toe sandals, since Spring had most certainly sprung. That girl loves her some fashion!!
See y'all tomorrow. I have months to catch up on!!
