Not a cool mom?!

Me: You can't have a mental health day tomorrow, I have to be at school to help with the walk-a-thon. But I will pretend I don't know you if you still want that.

Carter: All of my friends say you aren't a cool mom.

Me: WHAT? What friends?

Carter: My cool friends.

Me: Why do they say I am not a cool mom? (Try not to panic, breathe, breathe)

Carter: They just do.

Me: But WHY? What did I do? (Why are these 5th graders judging me?)

Carter: They think you aren't cool because you don't have a tattoo.

Me: Do they have tattoos?

Carter: (smirk) No.

Me: Then I don't think they are cool either.

I would love to go to my room and stay there all day!!! Please, Please! (you comment rules - very cute)

Cool Mom - although it is comforting to know that you are a "cool mom" it may just be better to know that you don't have your body all inked up - I mean how would you feel about having a tatoo when you are 90?

I think you need to show those 5th graders how cool you are! You should show up to the walk-a-thon with a temporary tattoo!

I love your response. Although I probably would have asked if those kids Moms have tatoos but they answer would probably be yes! HA!

As soon as Ben gets home, let's head down to Holy Rollers and get tatooed. When combined with my nose piercing, I'm sure to be a cool mom, right? What are you gonna get? I think I'll get an outline of Scott's hand print on my...oh, wait...then the kids won't be able to see it. That kind of defeats the purpose...

Maybe just a butterfly on my ankle, but that's so cliché. Hmmm...maybe I'll just wait.

Great response.

Good quick thinking.

Are kids crazy these days or what?

Simply Shannon said...

That is absolutely the perfect response! Good for you!

Sorry you're already getting the "you're not cool enough" thing. Sucks.

Patrice said...

LOL! I love your repsonse! Nice comeback! I'm sure you are a cool mom! Those 5th graders don't know what they're talking about!

Mamasphere said...

Excellent comeback!

And what the heck are those other "cool" parents showing their tattoos to young kids for?

Former Fat Chick said...

My response would have been....Just 'coz you havent seen my tattoo, doesnt mean I don't have one! Oh yeah....give those 5th grade boy something to ponder! hahaaaaaaa

I agree with danielle I hope you put on a big temporary tattoo to show those little 5th graders who is cool.
