They Finally Get It!!
There are just some moments in your life that are so .... so .... but you can't go there, except in your head.
Like those old family pics where everyone is standing there in their brand new dresses and suits, hair done to perfection, front and centre ... forever preserved so that people will look at the photo and go, "oh my gosh, you were so cute/beautiful/handsome ...." and everyone completely misses the slightly damp from sweat mom in the same dress year after photo year, hair ... washed....sometimes combed .. sometimes not ....turning so no-one sees the peanut butter hand print still visible where the oil did not come out .. but the colour was good so what the heck ... (omg someone run and show my English teacher THAT last sentence ... I love doing that just because he said I shouldn't)
And then your kids point at you and laugh at how funny you looked and roll their eyes and say things like, "everyone else was dressed up mom ... why didn't you... hahaha .. look at your hair ... what were you thinking?"
Skip ahead a few years to the big family reunion ..... the pic with you front and centre, seated, hair coiffed, looking like a babe, gorgeous designer dress and shoes, and your kids hiding in the background with their old graduation suits ... the last one you bought for them .... now very tight, .... old modified bridesmaid dresses ...that you also paid for ... the colour at least is good ...
And you know they finally get it. And you know it still was all worth it and who puts those awful family pics out anymore anyway?
