‘Tis the season when Adam and I have several holiday parties to attend and the kids aren’t always included on the guest list. His work, my work. His college buds, my college gals. Our friends, our neighbors. Finding a babysitter for all of these events is sometimes a challenge and it is then that I need to rely on my mom. The other night as my kids were leaving to head to grandma’s for an overnight stay, I was having a pre-dinner drink while waiting for Adam to finish getting all of the gifts in the car for a party (again, no kids invited! Gotta love that kinda event!). Maybe it was the drink in my hand that reminded Ella of something my mom had said to her or maybe she was just pissed she had a sitter again – because she turned to me and practically gloated when she said - “Gram thinks you need to grow up with all these parties. And that you don’t dress your age and that you are an idiot.” And she turned to walk out the door. If you knew my mother, you’d know that is exactly what she would say. Yea well, I agree that I don’t act or dress my age….the idiot statement is fairly generic but that too is pretty much true. I guess I have a few things to work on in 2015….or not. Cheers!!
