Happy Memorial Day! We had a great weekend and I hope you did too!
Guess what! I bought 2 flowers for my hair. One white and one grey (to go with some outfits).... I'd like to share The Mexican's reaction.
I am in shock! I reply, "A FLOWER!"
The Mexican continues on, "Tara, where did you get dis? I've never seen any girls wearing dis here."
I reply, "well you are about to!"
The Mexican, "you don't think people are going to laugh?"
Me, "I don't care if they do! I want to have my own style, wear things I LIKE! I'm not trying to please other people!"
Our son says, "yeh, mommy! You have to be you! Just be yourself.!"
The Mexican joined in, "yeh your right papa"
I proceeded to pull out my cell and show my husband a picture I took of a hat I saw in a store.
"As you can see, flowers are all the rage this year" (i am making things up at this point) My husband nods and I can tell he is thinking it over. I pull my last blog post up and show him the pictures of the 3 girls with flowers in their hair. He says, "well, it does look cute on you....."
Later on that day we went swimming. We decided to grill out and let the boys (my son and nephews) play in the pool. I went inside to grab everything we were going to grill out. I made a quick dash into the bedroom and pulled one side of my hair back with one of my new flowers. I came out side.
The Mexican immediately says "whoa! Look at you with your flower." I smile. The Mexican says, "Look, your brother is outside, you should go ask him what he thinks of the flower." (by the way, my brother lives next door to us.) I say, "Ok, I think I will!"
I walk over to the fence that separates our houses. Me, "Hey R, do you like my flower?" R, "Yeh, it's nice." (he has a weird look on his face) Me, "No really, be honest, do you think it looks cute?"
R, "yeh" (still has a weird look on his face) Me, "Do I look stupid?"
R, "ummm, yes." (as he starts to laugh) then he continues "well, you know maybe if you were wearing a sundress or something, but you've got on blue soccer shorts, green t-shirt, and a white flower in your hair...."
I go back over to where my husband is grilling out. The Mexican asked, "what did he say?"
I answered, "He LOVED it!"
