Just back from a few days in Newport, Rhode Island with the family including my hubby, Tom, and daughters Katie and Emma. The girls - who are 14 and 12 - love to take my iPhone and document our trip with Facebook posts, texts, and pictures with captions like "I'm with Stupid" and "This is SO College!"
All was going well until I spotted a picture of myself and was horrified to discover that I actually look like that middle-aged mother I swore I'd never become. I just woke up one day and there she was. And now when we go away, my personals bags with all my creams, make-up and medications takes up more room than my clothes and shoes combined. And I bring a hell of a lot of shoes.
What's worse, every time I try to take a picture of someone ELSE with my phone, the darn little button that controls the viewer is turned on me and it is really frightening. Is it me or is the angle really bad (please tell me it's the angle). I'm wondering what Gisele Bundchen looks like when this happens. Oh damn it all, we all know the answer to that one.
Why am I feeling so old all of a sudden?? Maybe it's having a kid going into high school. That sure gives you a jolt. Ah well, nothing we can do about it unless I invest in some costly "maintenance" procedures and I don't think I'm there...yet.
|Love this picture of Tom and girls |
because I'm not in it!
