Ouch! That hurt.

Read with caution!  Somewhat inappropriate material below:

What I’m about to say is inappropriate.  Sort of.

I’ve debated writing about it for just that reason…..

I might regret it…..but I can’t help myself.

See, I’m still stinging.

I totally got slammed.

Jeff related to me a conversation he had with Grace a few days ago.  I don’t remember anything about the conversation or how it came up, I just remember the inadvertent slam because that part was about me.

Now, when I say it still stings, what I really mean is that I can’t stop laughing about it.

It’s all about perception.

Grace told Jeff that she knows SIXTH graders with larger “friends” {she didn’t use the word friends, I did because I don’t want the real word here} than I have.  Believe me, I’ve noticed the same thing myself, and although it’s taken years, I’ve come to grips with the sad fact.

I wonder how she is going to feel when she realizes that if her genetic makeup is anything like mine she’s going to be in the same boat?  Ignorance sometimes IS bliss.  🙂

HAPPY NEW YEAR.  May it be prosperous AND BRIGHT.

    Girl – the minute my daughter passed me up in that “area” – I did something about it.

    Permanently.

    I’ve never been so happy.

    All those years I wasn’t allowed to play with Barbies because it might give me “body image issues”? Pointless. Who doesn’t want to look like Barbie??

    Large “friends” aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. They actually become your worst frenemies the moment you get pregnant, give birth, and hang a baby offa them for a few months. They sag. They drag. And sometimes they make you want to gag. They even resort to tripping you when you walk. That doesn’t sound “friendly” at all, does it?

    It is so crazy to see these girls developing at such an alarming rate! I definitely didn’t look like some of the young girls I see when I was their age!

    LOL. Are you talking about the girls? You’re so PC. Your idea of inappropriate is so much more ‘appropriate’ than mine, but you already knew that. LOL.
    Kate Hudson is my idol. Small boobs can be sexy too… I think.

    My kids, and husband, just continuously bug me about my “Friends in low places”. Sigh…. the fact that it’s the fault of my husband and three “precious” children that my girls have stooped so low is never brought up however.

    I totally thought you were going to swear or talk about the time you and Jeff had sex hanging from the ceiling fan. Not that I find that inappropriate, I just sort of expected a little more inappropriateness with the warning and all! lol

    LOL, I didn’t grow “friends” until I had kids. And they’re not really much to brag about… you know, having been used as a food source for the past three years :-/ haha

    That’s too funny! When I was teaching, a lot of my 5th graders were bigger than I was.

    Btw, I don’t know if it’s just me or what- but when I click on your twitter thing, it tells me that that page doesn’t exist.

    As a mother with LARGE friends
    that has cut them off TWICE
    and is still bigger than all my OTHER FRIENDS, FRIENDS
    with SIX daughters that are GROWING FRIENDS
    I can only laugh when my kids say they don’t want FRIENDS
    because in our house, we have a lot of potential for FRIENDS
    call it lucky, or call it CROWDED
    I feel different every day.
    Maybe I’ll call up my FRIENDS and talk about it with THEM 🙂
