As we all know, the very instant that a woman has a child they lose any ounce of cool that they may have ever had. Or at least, that is how we all seem perceive it. What says, “BAD ASS MAMA,” better than a mini-van full of groceries and kids? I rest my case.
Now, my dilemma. I always thought that I was cool, or could at least run with the fun crowd without breaking a social anxiety sweat. I like good music and I never got the snickering stares caused by fashion blunders. And for many years I was a certified ski-instructor: instant cool. And now, as a mom I will never be quite as hip as I once was, because I will always have a little person there to remind me, “God mom, stop embarrassing me!” Which I will gladly do every chance I get.
And so here is my question that I pose to you…
We all grow up, and as open minded as we think we are, we still have one thing that we do, say or wear that totally screams, “not from this decade, loser!” It’s inevitable, one day those three foot bangs and that rat-tail braid were going turn against you. So, just out of curiosity, what is something that you just can’t let go of, but maybe should because Kurt Cobain called from the other side and wants his favorite moth eaten sweater back?
