I am the Mom of two teenage sons and believe me they think that I am pretty scary. A good example of just how scary I might look on any given day would be the "outfit" that I wore this morning to take my High School Junior to school. He has to be there at 7:25 in the morning, so we have to leave the house before 7:00am. I will admit that I am not a early morning person and I am not going to get up early enough to shower, etc. before taking him to school. This morning the temperature was 49 degrees so I had on my pink fuzzy PJs, a hoodie and I did manage to put on socks and real shoes. I had no make up on (makeup-are you kidding?) and I did not brush my hair or even brush my teeth yet! (I promise, I will do it a little later). My son described me as a "Pink Nightmare" like in "A Christmas Story". I just do not have time to get everything done for myself and still get him to school on time. I have two dogs to take out and walk, lunches to pack, and breakfasts to make. We did make it to school on time but to avoid any possibility of being seen with Mom, otherwise know today as A Pink Nightmare, we have to stop a block from school. You know it is just not COOL for your Mom to take you to school, especially your Mom who still has on her PJs. It doesn't hurt my feelings, I still remember how it feels to be 16 and everything soooo matters! I still remember how "scary" my Mom was. I guess that I learned it all from her. I'm sure that she would be so proud!
