Reality Check

I am NOT cool anymore!! It's official. It was actually a little bit of a slap in the face when I discovered this tonight. I for some reason held onto the idea that even though I am now married and have a one year old, I was still young and hip and cool. That is apparently not so.

My sister, Shannon, and brother, Matt, were heading over to the bowling alley tonight to hang out with some friends. I remember those days!! So while we were sitting there talking about their plans for how to get there, how to get back, and what time they had to be home; I jokingly told them that I would just come with them and hang out too. Well Shannon was like, "no you won't, if you go than I am not going!!". WHAT?!?! I was shocked. I didn't actually plan on going, but I didn't realize that it was that awful if her friends saw me. Then just to add to my misery she likened me going with my parents going. I am not that OLD!! Or that lame!! Jerk!! And for the record, I was cool enough to let them walk to the bowling alley because they wanted to. Even though it was dark out and almost 9'0'clock at night and it's almost a mile away!! And I was cool enough to let then stay out a whole HOUR after the curfew that my Mom typically sets for them. But then I proved them right in my lack of coolness, when at 11pm I went to pick them up in my jammies. Because what else would I be doing on a Saturday night but hanging out with my son and husband watching movies?? Clearly my days of being cool are gone, and while I will miss them I am quite happy living this non-cool life now!!!
