When I was young, there were several things I promised myself I'd never do.
I'd never drive a Mini Van. (I don't anymore.. don't worry)
I would never leave the house without full make-up expertly applied. (I'm lucky to LOOK in a mirror each day!)
I'd never say "Turn That Junk Music Down!" (I wouldn't say it if their music wasn't junk)
I'd never slap one of those "My Kids an Honor Student at So-n-So elem School" bumper stickers on my car. (I'm proud.. shoot me!)
I'd never listen to "oldies" on the radio station. (no one told me 80's music would be considered old!)
I'd never wear jeans larger than a size 8. (5 kids.. nuff said)
I'd never drink anything "Diet". (see above)
I'd never use coupons.
I'd never choose comfort over fashion. (fashion? whats that?)
I'd never use "Because I Said So!" as reasonable logic. (I can't help it.. it's in the DNA)
I'd never choose grapefruit over Fruity Pebbles for breakfast.
I'd never Make my kids eat vegetables.
I'd never EVER use my spit to wash my kids face. (a mom has gotta do what a Moms gotta do!)
I'd never order a salad over a greasy Cheeseburger. (sigh)
I wouldn't have a cow when my child came home with a hickey. (so very NOT ok!!)
I would be a "cool Mom". (oh well.. I'll deal with it)
Well... I am now 36 years old.
I have 5 kids.
And I have successfully broken every single one of the promises I made myself as a child PLUS some.
I am turning into my mother!!
the shocking thing is....
It kinda makes me proud.
Sorry Young clueless Dana....
You grew up.
