Well, this perks a girl right up...

So I put on this capri set that my aunt had given me. Just something for around the house, errands, all that jazz. I thought it was cute.

I came out of my room and my two youngest daughters stared at me and BOTH said, "You look like Mimi."

Mimi would be my MOTHER.

Outfit was quickly removed and placed in the Goodwill bag. ~sigh~

Ugh! I hate it when my kids compare me to my mother! You have my deepest sympathies. *g*

OMG. You did the right thing, Brenda. *sigh* There's nothing that'll deflate a mood quicker than that.

Oh gawd! The horror... I don't blame you for tossing them into goodwill!

Brenda Bradshaw said...

Oh good. So it's not just me. Thanks guys.

LOL! Isn't that the WORST! It's bad enough when you hear yourself SAYING something and you think "I sound just like mom". But for them to point out you LOOK like her. So not fair *g

Out of the mouths of babes. Don't you just hate it when they're right. But, sometimes it's good to listen to them because they haven't learned to lie yet.

Brenda Bradshaw said...

Yeah, and I'm adopted!

HA! When I REALLY want to irritate Carol (a rare event indeed) I compare her to her mother. Works every time!

Hee! You poor thing!

That is sad and hysterical all at once!

I think you now have a new moniker!

Ohmuhgourd - this is the infamous Mimi torture tool I heard about over at RD.

I love dirt.

Brenda Bradshaw said...

Gives Gina "the eye".

Thanks a LOT, K!

Just be glad the grocery checkout people don't refer to you *AS* your child's grandmother.
~~evil wicked eye~~
At 51, (almost) and the mom of a nine year old son, I do believe I look pretty damn good. Dress cute, still have a discernable figure, and style my hair in a cute, funky way. Not tryin' to look 18, but DANG! "Is it okay with your grandma if you have a sucker?"
I DON'T KNOW!!! I'll get her on the FREAKIN'PHONE, and you may ASK HER!"
There. better. Thanks so much for the vent.
