It's remarkable to visit this web site and reading the views of all mates concerning this post, while I am also zealous of getting knowledge.

My brother recommended I might like this blog. He was totally right. This post actually made my day. You can not imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

My eyes were not rolling through the phone at all! I totally understood! I understand even more now, since I'm a mother to a almost 11 month old drama KING...geez I wonder where he gets it from??

email and IM'ing was invented for mom's.

I don't think I have HAD a telephone conversation in 2 years now ....as soon as the phone rings the two of them ramp up the volume and start fighting.

I think my levi's ARE mom jeans and I hate to admit they are my fave's.


I have been so gone for so long that I cannot even rise to be "that mom". Oh crap, I'm "used to be that mom".

But I do have good-boob shirts. Emily, got any beer left?

Ah but I have to add one...

I realized the other day that I'm ready for my Mom Card when I dug in my purse and found a french fry, a pacifier, and a diaper.

No accordion coupon book.

Skirted bathing suit - yes, but it's stylish. I swear.

Appliqued crap? Not me.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with one shirt doing double, triple, or even quadruple duty.

But do not call me on the phone. Unless you want to listen to me talk to my kids.

Oh wow. YOu have "good boob" shirts too? Yeay! So do I!

I wore a shirt out recently that had the words, "Moms Rock" on it. I saw three teen age girls look at me, look at each other, eye roll and laugh.

So yeah.... I know what you mean about being "that mom." Apparently I'm "that mom" who thinks I'm cool but is too hopelessly lame to realize the truth.

"good-boob shirts"

lololololol...I thought I was the only one.

And I can't even begin to imagine that you sound like that. I'm not sure what I had in mind but not that...too funny!

My local Ross has those charming Christmas applique sweaters on clearence - you can stock up for next season AND be Uber mom thrifty BWHAHAHAHAHAHA (runs and hides)

its totally OK i'm that mom too. My kids ignore me until the phone migrates towards my ear and then suddenly the moon has shattered and I am the only one who can fix it

Oh Heather - that makes me laugh out loud. Seriously...!!!! :)

A while back we went out to eat at a tamale place. I had a leftover tamale, and rather than ask for a to-go container, I wrapped it in napkins and stuck in my purse. In my purse! My former self died at that moment.

but she'll understand once she has kids. that's the irony of it all

It was when I bought the complete Mother/Daughter matching outfit from Hannah Andersson - with the tights.

That was my Waterloo.

Oh, and having bras that I shove the wire back into cause it pokes me, and still forgetting nearly every week to buy new ones, so I keep shoving the wire back into the bra....

And all the cool Moms wear the Lands End skirt bathing suits.

Lia ~ You are excused - that's not a bad one at all. Although I'm curious - is the function of the skirt to cover belly and ass?

you keep me roaaring with laughter K, i keep coming back for more. sad thing is I already did the research and look at what I have in my wish list :

Crap. I'm only four months in and I suspect that I'm fast-tracking to the gold card. No high waisted jeans yet (and if I EVER wander into camel toe territory... please, somebody, shoot me and give my daughter a good, fashion-friendly home with appropriate role-modelling) but THERE IS A SKIRTED BATHING SUIT (could that be said without full caps? No.) And there are coupons. And there are hosts of imaginary friends and anthropomorphized toys throughout our household, each of which has its own distinct - and loud - voice, courtesy of me, Turbo Mommy.

How about a nice pair of Lee Camel Toe jeans. THOSE are frigging hot.

OMG that was too funny! I'm not a mom but I have lots of friends who are "that" Mom and I may roll my eyes at times only because I miss my friends and want their undivided attention and want to hear about THEM. . . but I totally understand and wait patiently for the kiddies to get a little older so I can have my friends back. Sigh.

I've got the coupon accordion and I LOVE IT! LOL. I think we all become "that mom" at some time. There's nothing we can do. Don't fight it LOL. Sometimes kids have minds of thier own, and they turn you into the mom you hate to talk to on the phone...it's not your fault! LOL.

OMG - these are hilarious. Mrs. Davis - matching?? We did the uber family white tshirt and jeans thing. Isn't that like so 2001 or something?

And the running shoes - yes - they do go with everything.

I wore some with a nice pair of BR trouser jeans - my huz was like ??? and I'm like DON'T ASK...

Please keep them coming. I love it!

I'm there with the accordion coupon holder and the skirted swim suit and the phone calls. What put me over the top was the Christmas card picture we took a few years ago in MATCHING shirts. No applique or embroidery, but my husband continues to mock me for it.

Skirted bathing suit?


Inadequately calimg a screaming child while trying to talk on the phone to a terrified-sounding pregnant friend?


Turned on by minivans and Onstar commercials? Aroused by phrases like "remote start" and "stow and go?"


Assumption that running shoes do, in fact, go with everything?


In order to upgrade to a platinum membership, do I actually have to wait until my child throws a temper tantrum in the store and I sit idly by because I'm just too lazy to leave while he has a fit, or can I just go ahead and sign up now?

Wait till you carry GOLD CARD status that comes with multiple children.

oh god.

i have an accordion coupon holder and red socks with Christmas trees on them that i wear during the holidays. and when there are no other clean socks. even if they don't match what i am wearing.

shoot. me. now.

LOL! Welcome to our club. We always have room for one more.

It happens to the best of us. I had the one shirt pile before I had kids and now I'm happy to have a clean shirt AT ALL! One of the best compliments my friends ever gave me was that I was the married, mother of 2 who nobody believes is a married mother of 2.

Does that card get you discounts somewhere? If so sign me up. :) Next up is taking her to a non-animated, PG-13 or up rated movie and letting her sit there while she throws a tantrum.

ahahahaahahaahaha I love the bedazzler heh.

And dammit - Mom-101 I totally forgot about that. I just did that the other day.

I'm awful.

hehe I too am in the club, although not a senior member yet...we need to redefine the rules!

I'll make a deal with you: I'll shoot you and put you out of your misery if you ever wear an applique sweater and high-waist jeans if you'll do the same for me if I'm ever caught in a tapestry vest with rhinestones (a la the Bedazzler).

yes yes yes yes YES!! I am also the one putting the baby on the phone going, "say hi! Say hi to mommy's friend Thalia." Shoot me now.

Hey... what's wrong with the coupon accordian? That is certainly Type-A organizing :)

I drove my daughter to sign up for soccer in my minivan with my sweats on.

I'm there too.

that is hilarious. i've been a member since 2003. my daughter loves to watch videos of herself opening christmas morning and when she was a baby. i, on the other hand, think it is excruciating! welcome to the club ~ lol!

Oh Kristen, I thought you knew...
next is the Minivan :)

I hope that your credit union appreciates the free publicity :)

... must go find a clean good-boob shirt now ...

Hello, from a mom so guilty of putting on whatever clothes I can find in the morning, wearing them all day, sleeping in them that night, and rewearing them all the next day, before grossing myself out, and changing them when I finally have time to shower.

I love your shirt piles!

If it doesn't have ick on it, I'm good to go.

CRAP!! I have a swimming skirt AND an accordian coupon book!!!

TAKE IT BACK! Delete those as examples before anyone reads them! Let me pretend I am cool again...PLEASE?!?

I need a beer.
