I mean seriously.

Check her out.

Is she workin' it or is she workin' it?!

So Peanut comes in while I'm running on the treadmill and asks, "ya know that pile that is donations.....can I cut up a pair of MY old jeans and make them into shorts?"

Me, "sure, just don't cut them too short".

Then [dun dun dun dunahhhh] she walks in like this:

[yes, of course I stopped the mill for this].

Hmmmmm, but then I realized OMGosh, those are my old True Religion Big T flap pocket, heavy stitch jeans that I was going to sell on eBay!!! [side note, yes, they were next to the give-a-way pile but SOOOOOOOOOOOO not in the pile - certainly, at least 3' away.

So, I did what every mom would have done.  Freaked out [silently] and said, those are mine!! JK, that's so what I wanted to say then I turned my thoughts quickly to [Jesus ;) and] what a "good" mom would do [took two and a half [or 47] deep breaths and] I really said, "you completely rock, Kid" and took her to summer camp - exactly as pictured.

Now if she gets a stain on those, I'm really going to be ticked. ;)

She looks great! Good Mama for not freaking out in front of her. :) I bet she loves them. And, you and your daughter can wear the same size?? Jealous!

Megan said...

Eeehhh...Kids & scissors. A few wks ago I found some blonde hair on the ground. Both have blonde hair but only one can work scissors. The big one cut her own bangs. I asked her why she said her hair was in her face. Seriously?!

I don't know; I think she needs a bit more hip action in the pose. Seriously, if she is gonna bring it; then BRING IT!

firstly, you wear the same size pants as peanut???? jeaaaaaaaaaaalous. Secondly, I am a HUGE fan of summer camp. I went for about 9 years and ended up as a camp counselor! I hope peanut has the time of her life!!! Oh and make sure you send her LOTS of candy and letters saying how much u and pita and chuy miss her otherwise you won't be a cool mom.

LOL

Sending Peanut to summer camp in that outfit is worth WAY more than you could have ever gotten for those jeans on eBay!!!

You are definately the good parent!! With an 18 year old and a 13 year old to vouch for me--don't know if I could have handled it that well!!

And yeah, great outfit. My daughter (the 18 year old) agrees!!

Quinton J said...

LOL…that’s why I ALWAYS keep my True Religion Big T flap pocket, heavy stitch jeans as far away from my donations basket as possible.

Marlene said...

NICE! She looks so cute. Bummer on your jeans but you are AWESOME for not freaking out.

Matty O said...

HA! Well she has an eye for fashion huh? Why would she cut the crappy jeans?!

Way to calm down before you reacted :) Something I need to learn!

Jamie said...

Great job on keeping your cool. I wouldn't have been able to. way to rock, mom! :)
