Ok moms, please tell me that something like this has happened to you so I don’t run off and do an extreme mommy makeover!
I was at a Mommy and Me class earlier this week with the girls. We are having a blast playing, singing, etc. I am sitting there having a moment thinking “I am doing a good job as a mom!” Then out of nowhere…the teacher in the class compliments me on how cute the girls are and then busts out with “So you are the grandma?” I almost fainted! Did she just ask me if I was my daughter’s grandma? My second thought was, “what am I wearing? Did I do my hair and put make-up on today? Do I have a grey hair I don’t know about?” After I did the 180 point check trying to figure out why this woman just asked me if I was the girls grandma, I responded with a stern “no, I am their mom.” As class continued I tried to figure out what it was that brought my “grandma out” and how do I not let that happen again. I did make it through the class half singing and playing and half obsessed with what just happened.
As the days went on I told a few friends about what happened. Many had an initial “OMG she did not say that,” followed by reassurance that I do not look or act like a grandma. To all the grandma’s out there…please no offense to you all as grandma’s are the most special ladies in the world! I just don’t want to be called one at 37.
