My vacation week officially started today, so I am challenging myself to one interesting blog per day. (I'll measure "interesting" by my own amusement level in case you are curious.)
Written at 11:26 pm on my mom's couch:
This was a great-sounding idea at 10 this morning while I was getting a pedicure and (surely) had something clever to tell you all; however, now that it's almost midnight, and my brain has melted from a day of getting my kids ready to go out of town...yeah, I got nothin'.
But, Hey! It's tax-free weekend, so I will most definitely have an adventure to tell about tomorrow! In the meantime, here is a Freaking Mermaids! update.
I thought my plan was golden: have her say goodbye to all of her loved ones and her new kitten. Drive her to a nice rocky hill (volcano) and then tell her to get out of the car and go live her dream. My friends did not think that was a "Mom of the Year" type move, so they made lots of suggestions. A favorite was to dress up like a mermaid myself and embarrass her to death, but they don't make mermaid tails in plus size. (I know! I was shocked, too!) So, I made her a deal. I told her that I want her to live her dream, but we have to compromise. If she promises to stay a human until she graduates from high school, then I will take her to this volcanic moon pool (this is not a REAL thing, y'all) and she can jump in. She TOTALLY AGREED! Thanks to my friends for their advice!
Here's hoping she grows out of this over the next 11 years.
