Thinking of inconsequential things, I start to wonder....exactly WHEN did I turn into my mother?!?!?! I looked in the mirror the other day and I saw my mom looking back at me.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my mom! She raised 5 children on her own with minimal help. We have a HUGE family...my mom is the oldest of 6 and we ALL multiply like rabbits! I am the oldest grandchild...there are between 25 and 30 of us! The great grands? I have NO earthly idea how many we have, but there's a BUNCH of them! My cousin has had 5 children before she turned 30! Yes, we're a bunch of ho's.
I'm perplexed...I used to be semi-smart....when did I get to be SO stupid?!?!?! I was talking to my mom the other day and I told her that I honestly thought having children sucked the smarts right out of a woman. I mean think about it!
Before I had children, I LOVED reading Shakespeare and talking about his sonnets and plays. I could actually hold an intelligent conversation with a college professor without feeling like I was talking in circles or that the people I was talking with thought I was dumber than dirt. I am a country girl, I was raised on a ranch in SOUTHERN California and Macon, GA. I KNOW that I am smart...but since having my children, I feel like every smart cell has gone.
I have friends with kids and we've had discussions about how kids dumb you down...why is that? I work with educated people, they have children, but at work...we're all a bunch of loonies! I'd LOVE to have a conversation that doesn't revolve around politics (I HATE POLITICS!), religion (I'm a heathen), sex, school or ANYTHING to do with the world of Hollywood and the tabloids.*
*My daughter wants to be an actress one day, so I HAVE to be up-to-date on my tabloid info.
I don't wanna be dumb anymore! Some one, PLEASE tell me that I'll get smart again once the demon spawn, I mean children, are out of my house!
