Sometimes you just feel like this:
And choose to wear things like these:
To cover these:
And then you remember that your NORMALLY THICK head of hair looks like it’s thinning because the roots are growing out after dying it BLACK and your head looks like this:
So in an attempt to lighten your dyed-dark hair you choose to try this:
And then your disturbed son captures you in a photo and you look like this:
And feel like this:
…It appears that some days you just can’t win.
Until you take a look at the photos that your frightened son just took of you in this awful state, and you realize how ridiculous this thing called LIFE really is and you
LAUGH YOUR HINEY OFF FOR A FULL TEN MINUTES
until your tummy hurts and your kids are wondering if they should call someone for help.
THAT’S when you realize…
“BigSis–It’s time to GET OVER YOURSELF.”
So you pick yourself up off the floor, wash your futile-attempt-at-hair-lightening out of your still-dark hair and CHOOSE to put on a skirt instead of the hole-y pants and socks that you feel like wearing (because that’s how you feel inside). Force yourself to slap on a little makeup and this time your daughter catches you with the camera as you are working on this post…
looking like this:
And your girls breathe a sigh of relief cuz Mama’s on her way back.
Hope this helps you feel a little better about your own bad-self.
HUGE LOVE AT YOU AND GIANT GIGGLES WITH YOU!
