Look what I can do!

Today is a day where Facebook and blogs are flooded with tributes to mothers and/or thoughts on motherhood from young mamas.

My mom doesn't have a FB account nor do the blogging thing.

Annnnnd I cannot tell you how my bebe made me a mother or any thoughts on being a mother {and I wonder if I ever will}.

On a day where I feel leaps and bounds behind everyone my age and people years and years younger ... I am reminded that at least I can do this:


And then suddenly I am reminded, because believe it or not I had forgotten for 12 or so hours, that I am still a big deal. You may have birthed another human being ... But, I ... I can make my elbows touch while placing my hands on my hips. And I dare you to match that feat. In fact, this a clarion call to all of my readers to please, please send in photo of yourself attempting this. You will get 1,000 gold stars if you do.

***

And, I repeat, verbatim from last year's post on Mother's Day and the Mother's Day the year before that, " ...and you thought I'd have some crazy Mother's Day tribute posted today. That'd be super nice and fancy and all ... but my mom doesn't read my blog ... So, I don't think it's the most brilliant idea to tribute her here. No, no ... I will wait to do so in person. In song, dance, and puppet show. But for what it's worth ... my mom is soooo better than your mom. ;)

This is so weird. Just yesterday at church I met a girl who can do the same thing! I tried it then and couldn't do it. I tried it again just now and still couldn't do it.
I might just send you a photo because I want those 1000 points!

I like you a lot. And this blog is just another reason why. :)

Oooh, I wish I could do that. I need to think of something nifty I can do since I don't birth children either. haha.

Ooh, a puppet show? Your momma is so lucky! I have driven past your old house a couple times lately and thought of all the bike rides and fun times we had. You are fabulous. Thanks for being such a cute friend. (even though we haven't actually seen each other in a million years:) Love your guts.
