Today during our school time, Olivia must have really been enjoying math. She was counting money and telling time to the hour and she turned to me and said, "When I grow up I want to be just a PLAIN OL' MOM!"
Trying to hold in my gasp, I asked her what she meant. She said, "You know, I want to get married (yeah, that is always nice when it is mentioned first), then have two kids, and teach them school."
I was so glad that she did not mention my appearance (since I had not yet brushed my hair or changed out of my pjs), I asked her, "What makes that a PLAIN OL MOM?"
She said, "Mom, I want to cook, clean and do all the regular things that mom's do!"
Another sigh of relief from me, without her knowing.
Yes folks, I hope she can "take the good and take the bad" (hey, is that a line from a song from my childhood...is it ringing any bells?) and be happy some day. Isn't that what all of us parents want ?
So if you are now humming a tune to that song I mentioned, leave me a comment of what you think it is and I will have a little christmas gift for the first correct answer.
And the winner is...Jeanne McDonald...Good job. Just a side note, all the females who answered got it right. It was "The Facts of Life" theme song. Your restaurant $25 gift card will be available after you email me and tell me which one you prefer.
