A Proactive Apology

My kids won't find the embarrassing stories I share with the world if I do it on another blog.


Just in case they do, let me say this.


I want you to know that I do remember what it was like to be a pre-teen and I'm not unsympathetic. It's just that I'm discovering there are certain traditions that are the rights of every parent. And when you become parents yourselves, I fully expect you to "torture" my grandbabies in the exact same way.

Please know my sweet things that the "fights" I put up to your attempts to fit in are only for show--and I am giggling in my head the whole time. For I know hormones are taking over your body, which is prohibiting you from exhibiting any normal sort of behavior--kinda like demonic possession without the projectile vomiting (there better not be any projectile vomiting).

Sharing some of your stories with my friends?? It's just that a mamma has to do something to maintain her sanity.

I love you forever,

Too funny, and true.

My son knows about my blog and I have no idea when or how that slipped out. Oops. Think I should apologise in advance for the emotional scarring his reading it will cause.

I was horrified when my mom told everyone about getting my period. Now I know that as a mom, ya gotta do whatcha gotta do! It's perfectly normal.

I double check with my kids whenever I write a post about them because I would hate for them to be mad at me later and be embarrassed by it. They love it... they're totally shameless.

Guess your 7th grader wouldn't be "down" with my $8.98 Starburys from Steve & Barry's!

I haven't told my kids about my blog. I am still defining what it is to me...

My mom hung my first training bra out the car window all the way down our very very long street.

I took a picture of my son in a pink beret when he was two. He's almost ten. I'm waiting for the right moment to drag that picture out!!

Don't mess with Momma. (!)

There has to be a plus side to this whole MAMMA thing!

I feel certain they will forgive you!
