Putting me in my proper place

Just now, Chloe and I had the following conversation:

Chloe: Mom, pretend you're a lady, okay?

Me: But I am a lady, I don't have to pretend.

Chloe (looking at me as if I have sprouted 2 new heads): No, you're not a lady, you're just a mom. (pause) Now, pretend you're a lady, okay?

I guess she told me.

Oh....vacation pictures are coming, I promise. I just haven't had much time to sit down and edit them. As soon as I got home I had a friend from Arizona and her 2 kids visiting. They left yesterday and I'm trying to get to it. Trying. Honest. Stay tuned. Really.


  1. LOL...so we need acting lessons now, huh?

  2. Who came to visit? That must have been fun!

  3. LOL - It's like the few times that I get dressed up to go somewhere, and the kids stare at me like they're a deer in the headlights. "Wow. You look BEAUTIFUL."

    Yes, girls, I can escape the stained t-shirt SOMETIMES.

  4. Soooo reminds me of that line from Aristocats - "You're not a lady. . .you're nothin' but a sister!"

    I get that same look from my kids when I have make up on and am wearing something other than denim and t-shirts! (My school kids are the best at pointing that out!)

  5. That;s cute...also cute pics! I wanted to let you know I responded to your question Re: Nutritional Yeast on my blog! Thanks for the visit and comments.


  6. You aren't a lady.
    Unless you're in SF with me.
    Please come back, lady. :)

  7. hahaha, as always, laughing out loud while reading your posts. these girls of yours are awsome! lots of hugs for you all!

  8. Oh Goodness! Chloe is halarious. We had the best time together swimming!!!!!
