Like a Man In Drag

It’s no secret that I am loving my short hair.  Every time I walk past the mirror I stop and say, who’s a sassy bitch?  I’m not joking about that…yes, I am that self absorbed*.

Seriously, have you seen me with this kick ass hair?

How awesomely cute am I?

I know!  It’s hard to believe!

That being said…a time has come where I did not find my hair to be so awesome…

It was today, at the Mother’s Day luncheon at Jack’s school.  Of course I had a great time and it was so nice to be able to spend that one on one time with my middle child…


The kids all made portraits of their mothers with little phrases saying what they love about us..

You’ll all be happy to find out that Jack thinks I make the best tacos, I’m pretty, and he likes it when I take him to the store…

But look…

I look like an ugly man in drag…

It could be worse I suppose…he could have made me a chunky** ugly man in drag***…

*although I like to think of it as high self esteem

**diary of a fat mom huh?  that’s on hiatus due to an excess of calories…I’ll come clean soon, but yes, I am still muffin toppin’ out of my size 14s…sigh…

***there’s that silver lining

    LOL…That is a pretty cute drawing! You look fabulous in ANY picture and you know it!!

    I always fear mother's day stuff that comes from school. Kids are too honest. In Kindergarten the teacher gave them a little booklet to fill out with questions. That is never good. LOL
    As for your hair, I totally envy you. I would love to chop mine off but don't have the guts…or the face for it! You are beautiful.

  8. The BabbyMama says:

    No offense to your budding artist, but kids' drawings aren't always spot in wrt reality. Your hair is sassy and that picture just didn't capture the real you. Perhaps a career in finance is in his future?

    Ummm… I love your short sassy hair.

    I think all kids make their moms look like drag queens when painting with watercolors. I mean who wouldn't.

    Wear that muffin top proud! It will be gone soon enough…wait, thats supposed to be enjoy your kids while they are young.

    Happy Mother's Day Holly!

    I love that your arms are coming out of the sides of your dress. And for the record, I do not think his picture looks like a guy in drag. :-D Happy Mother's Day!

  14. Steff says:

    I love that first picture of you with the flower! I'm pretty sure you've posted it before, but I love it!

  15. Vanilla Mama says:

    Happy Mother's Day and you DO NOT look like a man in drag! Cute, Cute, Cute hair!
