The one where I post the Six Word Meme
I was tagged this week by Kimberly with this fun meme, so I thought I'd finally get around to posting my response and then challenging all of you to do it too.
Okay, the rules go like this...
(1) Come up with a six-word "memoir" of your life right now. (2) Include a visual representation of the memoir, if you'd like. (3) Tag six other people along with their links. (4) Keep the fun going
So, the six words I've chosen for this are...
Cool Mom? or Just Plain Goofy?
Yes, that's me playing (or "attempting" to play!) Guitar Hero! (I should absolutely get a huge number of extra Blog Points for posting this "attractive" picture, dontcha think?)
So, those six words seem to really encapsulate where I am a lot of the time with three daughters of varying ages. I have four-year-old Scout who pretty much thinks I can do no wrong; she tells me all the time "You're the bestest Mommy ever!" Then I have eleven-year-old Delaney who, I can tell, is slowly developing some of that "mom, really, don't do that right now- syndrome, but who still tells me she loves me every morning when I drop her off at school. Then I have sixteen-year-old McKenna who kinda just rolls her eyes at me a lot, but still shares so much of her life with me in conversation and what I like to call "heart-sharing."
They are all super girls and I know that...most of the time!!...they think I'm a pretty good Mom. But, cmon now, how many of you thought your own Mom was great ALL the time?? Be honest now!
And how many of you weren't embarrassed by what your own Mom did, especially when you were with your friends?
Which brings us to Guitar Hero. When the girls had some friends over to play, I could NOT resist trying it out. They might have thought I was a little bit goofy, but I guess they've learned that that's just who I am. I love to act silly sometimes; and, honestly, I try and keep up with things that my own kids like (music, celebrities, books, etc.), because it keeps me in touch with who they are and what they like. I never want to be an Out of Touch Mom.
So, what do you think? I know, I know...the answer has got to be "goofy.' But that's okay... if it keeps me in touch with my kids (and gives me the chance to rock out to Poison!!!).
(Oh yeah...I'm supposed to tag six people! Let's see, I think the only person I'll tag will be Gary, since he needs a new post. And the REST of you are officially tagged too!)
(And, oh yeah...sorry, I keep thinking of things I knew I wanted to mention in my post today... Check out Phats' blog, where I'm one of the finalists in his NCAA Tourney Brackets picks. I can't wait for the Final Four. And check out Lain's blog, where my layout from yesterday was chosen as a winner. Cool!)
Okay, I think that's it... LOL... Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!
