I AM UNCOOL BECAUSE:
*I will NOT let my 6 year-old play bloody/graphic videos games with the older boy at daycare. And WOW, what a big unpopular dork that makes me.
*I am the Mom who tries to pack healthy school lunches instead of expensive prepackaged junk food. I’d rather spend a few extra minutes packing a lunch that I know will get eaten, then have a famished kid who opted to eat at school tell me at 4:00, “the cafeteria hotdish looked like snot, Mom.”
* I am the weirdo that goes into a Big-Name-Brand-Coffee-Shop Charin and tells the barista I want “a plain o black coffee.” If I’m feeling really saucy that day, I’ll order it with flavored creamer and TWO sugars. Jump back, Jack.
*I am brutally honest. If you’re being rude, arrogant or inappropriate (especially to my family) consider yourself CHECKED. REALLY jump back, Jack.
chronically consistently I live in them 24/7 sometimes wear pants with stretchy waistbands. If I have to trapped in these damn pants all day, I’d better be comfy. I don’t even wear Mom Jeans. They are just too…too..CONFINING.
*I don’t believe in muffin tops, low rider jeans, thongs or “free-boobin-it” with no bra under my tank top. I couldn’t bear to look at myself in that stuff, why would I subject others to it as well?
*I’d rather hang with my family than spend 4 hours an evening on Facebook or Twitter. Sorry, no fake farming, candy-named games ,or “what movie star are you most like” surveys for this chick.
So I am uncool. Check with my kids in about 10 years and I am sure they will second the motion. But you know what? But that’s OK. I am committed to starting the trend of uncool being the “new cool!”
