(with thanks to LMac for reminding me, via a FB post, about this topic)
Sarcasmo. Sweet, gentle, quiet, giant that he is. My firstborn. My angel. *snorts* Everything I do is wrong these days. Cooking. Cleaning. Being. All wrong. Apparently this is a normal stage of development? Harrumph.
Anyway, he’s become particular about his clothes these days. “OMG MOM! I can’t wear this! It’s WRINKLED!” God forbid the basketball shorts and tee shirt that you’re wearing to play XBOX in would be wrinkled. *rolls eyes* And his clothes are “itchy” and “not soft” and “covered in dog hair.” (perhaps if you would put your clothes in your drawers instead of throwing them on the floor they wouldn’t have dog hair on them?!?!?!)
Anyway. He’s decided to do his own laundry and I couldn’t be happier. I got him his own laundry basket, detergent (“OMG! I hate the way the clothes smell!“), fabric softener (since his delicate teenage hide can’t abide by “itchy” clothes), and dryer sheets. He’s been doing his own laundry for a week or so. *purrs*
What? Am I a Bad Mom having him do his own laundry?? NO! It’s a Life Skill. He’ll be going to college (please God!) in a few years and everyone needs to know how to do this! Selfishly, this cuts down on my chores a tad AND eliminates at least a few minutes of teenage complaining. Priceless.
Yup, I’m going to enjoy watching this “transformation“…they say she gained 60 lbs. Please. I find that hard to believe. I bet it was closer to 80. I gained 40 with Sarcasmo and was back in my normal regular clothes and oh-so-close to my pre-pregnancy weight after 6 weeks. I’m looking at Jessica and thinking it’s going to be at least a year until she is thin again. This is a cautionary tale, people! Don’t eat buttered pop tarts and other senseless crap while pregnant!
Soooo, Jada only see food as fuel?? I guess if you want cheekbones that look like that ^^ you have to see it that way. Hmm. Don’t think I want cheekbones that look like hers. At all. They’re a little frightening, doncha think?
She needs to turn in her woman card. A) What self-respecting woman sees food merely as fuel?? Hello? It’s rewards and punishment and comfort and love! Everyone knows that! and B) She has to turn in that woman card b/c girlfriend does NOT look very feminine, despite that long hair. Am I right??
Okay, just read this article on LaineyGossip. She’s talking about a new procedure called “double blasts” – back to back microderm and cold laser…supposed to tighten skin, increase collagen, shrink pores, make your skin glowy. Has anyone heard of this??????
