Too maternal to be cool

I am not sure how we got into this conversation, but a few nights ago I found myself - face to face with my youngest - describing the tattoo I would like to put on my arm and shoulder.

"I'll have a big orange koi fish on my arm here, and maybe a bluebird over here."

"Really??" my four year old asked, wide eyed and incredulous at the very idea.

"Yes! Don't you think that will look pretty?"

And then from the other room, the 11 year old yelled out, "Awe, Baylie! She's just kidding you. MOMS don't get tattoos!

Oh, believe me, we're tatooed all right -- by THEM! LOL

You can surely sport a tattoo lady. Go prove them wrong. :D

You should get road runner tattoed on your arm. LoL!

*Peep peep*

You aren't kidding, Karen - oh, the tattoos I have earned by being a mother...(seen and unseen) - hahaha

ah ha ha ha ha ha
yeah, little does SHE know. It's nice that she's still so innocent at eleven. Isn't that cute.

I am imagining you dressed in momjeans and one of those shirts that's made for nursing, singing, "We live in a mater-nal world, and I am a mater-nal girl." I don't know why. It just came to mind.
