The other night around the dinner table while Ryan was working, the kids randomly made up an acrostic of my first name. It was hilarious and flattering all at the same time. Here it is:
Awesome (Not Adorable? They said I'm not adorable. I'm way more awesome than adorable.)
Ridiculous (As in funny. I totally wanted clarification on this one.)
Now, if they only knew how many other qualities I still hugely lack and am trying to work on.
And I was totally taken aback by Kacy's contribution of "invincible." I don't see myself that way AT ALL, so it was neat to see her perspective. My kids think I'm a walking encyclopedia, so the last one cracked me up. I get annoyed when they are all, "You don't know that, mom?" when I have no answer for them. I want to say, "Shut it! Holy cow, what do expect?" Lol. Anyway, I wanted to write this down so in thirty years I can look back and be all weepy about my precious children having all grown up and stuff.
I want to use this as ammunition when they tell me how awful they think I am when they are 16 or 17 and I won't fund all their deepest material desires. :) How's that for awesome?
(PS- Dear Kacy, Will, Ed, and Jessie: You know I love you all.)
