For the Love of Ladybug

It’s crazy days around here. We’ve got houseguests – which is always fun, but it’s especially fun for Buddy Boy because one of our houseguests is a 5yo boy. And boy-howdy, those boys are having fun. And Ladybug…is NOT having fun. And when Ladybug isn’t having fun, nobody's having fun…except the two 5yo boys who are oblivious to everything.

It’s Good-for-whom Friday Good Friday, which means the schools are closed. And since it was supposed to be a horrible stormy day, we decided to take in a movie. To cheer Ladybug up, I let her pick out my movie-going ensemble. Hey, 2 hours in the dark – who was going to notice? The Hot Dad who stopped Ladybug on her way out of the theater and whispered, “Your Mommy’s socks don’t match.” That’s who! In a sea of well-coordinated, over accessorized N. Dallasites, I guess I did stick out like a sore thumb. Ah, the the things I do for love. This ought to put me in the running for Mom of the Year, don't you think?  Oh well. At least someone got a laugh at my expense today. And my little girly was pretty tickled too.

So, what'd you do for love today?

Oh, and it's Follow Friday - just click the button to play along.

OMG, I LOVE the socks! You have to know I'd do that without blinking and wouldn't give a sh...well you know, who looked at me funny. I live on the cusp of the hoity toity neighborhood here in Houston and gladly prance around the mall where the snooty moms hang out in my X-Men t-shirt...or my Cookie Monster face one. Poor Little Ladybug is outnumbered by the boys :( I hope you guys had fun at the movies!

Mother of the Year, DEFINITELY!!! That is so fun of you! And Hot Dad was probably just completely intrigued by you! :-)
