Am I the only one that argues with my teenager?
So at the beginning of the school year, we decided that since the unnamed child was not going to take part in any sports that we would go to the gym at least 3 times a week. Well, we have surpassed the first month of school, and I think she has gone with me twice. So we got in a big
fight discussion on Tues night saying come-hell-or-high-water, we were going to the gym Wednesday.
Then I woke up Wednesday and felt awful. Incredibly achey and had a low fever. I knew, though, if I didn’t go to the gym she would have felt that she had won. In Dr. Phil’s words, pick your fights wisely, but if you engage with your child never lose.
So off to the gym I went; every second that went by felt like an eternity, but by God I didn’t lose that fight.
After I got home from the gym, I was going to finish a table I had been working on. After the workout that would never end, I instead took a NyQuil and watched Ellen, followed by Dr. Phil (just to reinforce that I’m not a bad parent).
So while I was semi conscious, I was surfing Pinterest. I have been noticing more and more totally bizarre things that have been pinned lately, and I decided to show some of them to you.
The noodle splash guard. I told the unnamed child she needs to take this on her next date. It’s ruffled and even comes in pink so it’s practical yet feminine.
Ok guys this one makes me want to vomit. I can’t believe there is a manicurist on the plant that would bedazzle those babies.
These are tights that look like hairy legs. Yes, someone seriously created these. You wear these out to the bar with a mini-skirt if you’re a married woman. Total man repellent.
Ummm…what? You would have some very jacked up tan lines.
This is so not normal. One word, ouch!
I’m not sure what to say about this photo. It’s kind of amazing in a disturbing kind of way.
He does not look as excited about pooh bear as she does.
The last time I was sitting on the rocky beach naked, I felt like I was forgetting something. Oh yeah, it was my unicorn mask, what was I thinking?
Is it just me or does this little collection of freakiness make you feel a little more normal? I thought so, or maybe I just need to lay off the NyQuil.
If this is something that you would like to see on a monthly basis let me know. Until then I will keep my eye out for my own unicorn mask.
