Everyday I get people asking me how old I am which usually follows with, oh my I could have sworn you were 16 years old. I substitute teach at the middle schools and highschools and every time with out fail I get mistaken for a student...I'm being told to go to class, or a teacher will come in my classroom and ask where the teacher is, or the students will ask me out etc. A couple of weeks ago an APX Alarm salesman came to my door and asked me if my mom was home... I said no, but my husand is. Anyway needless to say, because I am constantly being told how young I look, I have always felt super young. Remember back when we were all kids and you'd say some new slang word like, oh lets say, "the bomb" or "for shizzle" and your parents would be like what the heck does that mean? I remember thinking I am never going to be like that, I'm going to be the coolest mom and will always listen to the hip music, and watch MTV, and dress cool, and know all the slang terms even when I'm 45. Well I'm only 23 years old and I've already let myself down.
Arch and I watched Juno last night, and anyone who knows me would know that I have "phrases" if you will like hold the phone, shut the front door, good freak, that flips my switch, I hear ya squawkin big chicken, I'm pickin up what your puttin down and they just go on and on(which really I owe most of my phrases to Averi, Zoolander and Nacho Libre) but this movie put me to shame. Half way through the movie I started thinking, good crap I don't understand half the stuff this girl is saying, I am TOTALLY moving towards the "what the heck does that mean" kind of mom. I think one of my favorites she said was "up the spout" meaning pregnant oh and "honest to blog" meaning are you serious? Anyway, this may be about the most random post I've ever posted, but its just been on my mind and I didn't have any pictures to update ya'll on so this is what you get.
