Wordless Wednesday: A fun “look” at mom…

During our last vacation to Walt Disney World, I held on to my daughter’s sunglasses while she got herself situated by placing them on top of my own sunglasses, which were perched on top of my head.  By the time she was ready to go, I had already forgotten about the shiny pink princess sunglasses doubled on top of my own.  We walked around the park for awhile, went on a ride or two, had a meal.  Then the sun came out.  I reached up to grab my own sunglasses and realized how foolish I must have looked for all that time, walking around the Magic Kingdom with two pairs of sunglasses piled on top of my head.  I turned to my husband and said, “Do you even look at me?  Why didn’t you say something?”

This scenario plays itself over and over again each week.  “Didn’t you see I had that stuck to my shoe?”  “Didn’t you notice the giant blueberry stain on my shirt?”  “There was WHAT stuck between my teeth all day?”

For awhile I decided that clearly my family never looks at me.  I’ve revised that.  I think they just don’t see me.  This is what I’ve decided they must see instead…

    LOL! this happens to me all the time too! Although I would add a picture of a tissue and a trashcan too! :)

    I’m certain they see those things, but I’m equally certain you left out a photo of a heart or hug.

      I tried to find a good picture of a pillow because that’s what I am to my son, but didn’t come up with anything fitting. A heart would have been a great idea!

    Hysterical! But you must be wrong. They don’t see those things when they look at you. They see your beautiful soul, and little things like spinach in your teeth or silly glasses on your head just don’t matter. You are so much more than those things. And you are beautiful and perfect even with gum in your hair.
    (At least that is what I tell myself after I realize I’ve been walking around with paint on my cheek all day! Can you please come everywhere with me so I don’t embarrass myself anymore?)

    Ah, yes. I spent all day yesterday, apparently, with a chunk of my hair matted together from breakfast syrup. Didn’t notice until I actually had time to kick back on a sofa at Bible Study last night – at 6pm. Glad to know that my kids, husband, neighbors, and babysitter thought enough to share that bit of information :)

    I am with you mamma! I think that is exactly what my family sees too. We have gone through the same scenario so many times.

    Hilarious! The pillow & heart are also great additions, but how about a pic of a taxicab? Lately my son has had a more active social life than me!! Too funny! :)

    Ok, that is too funny, lol. I would have to add a computer to the list too. My kids ask me everything that they could easily look up. Oh and a chaffuer’s hat too.

    Too funny Amy! I think most of our families see us that way, don’t worry you’re not the only one.
