Here’s how it works: Put up a post “Real Moms [insert what you do here]”, followed by an explanation , a picture, and a “Real Moms. Making ….”. Then tag five people.
I was tagged by Elizabeth so I thought I would share this.
When I was younger, I went out to a club with XTA in the Triangle area of NC. First that night we went to a sock monkey art exhibit, and saw WW2 sex education films - the kind that were shown to soldiers. It was a hoot. Then we went to a rock bar and hung out. I met a boy with full sleeve tattoos and a goatee who offered to pierce my upper ear. This was flirtation. He also offered to pierce OTHER stuff. Which I declined. But the next day. XTA and I went to his extremely grubby piercing/tattoo parlor and I let him jam a piercing needle through my upper ear.
I had three holes in each ear, and now I had one up high, on the left. TOTALLY cool in 1996.
7 piercings. Not a lot in some circles, but pretty cool.
When I got pregnant with Lil Satchmo, I took out my earrings, and I took out THAT earring.
Maybe it was because I was an older Mom, 34 when I got pregnant, I felt like there was nothing lamer than a mom trying to look cool. Forget it, it's over. YOU ARE A MOM.
And that's okay.
I had watched other moms go get this same piercing in their mid 40s......and honestly, it looked a bit silly with their bright white sneakers and super dark blue jeans.
I like being a mom, despite the previous post. I will be a mom as long as I live. My shoes are too white, just like all the moms I used to snicker at. I had on the lamest clothes in the pit at the KORN show a few months ago.
But that's okay, because the cool ship sailed......and I am SO okay with that.
I'm going to tag some of you bizotches, so get ready....let's have......
IZZY, QOS, ALI, DEVRA and KAREN
