Yeah...You WISH Your Mama Was This Hot!

In my head I don't think of myself as being any older than my early 20's. I still feel young...and immature...and hip. And yeah, I still dress that way. I mean, I do sometimes wonder if I'm one of those aging women who dresses like a teenager and everybody looks at her like, "Oh honey, it's just time to give up."

I know you've seen those women.

Oh Gosh, I hope I'm not one of them.

But apparently I needed a little reminder that my youthful ship had sailed because I got one whether I wanted it or not.

I was exiting a store this week with my oldest son and it happened to be lunch hour at the high school across the street. And since it's an open campus, all the kids come to that same store to get their lunches. So as I walked out of the building I pushed my cart right into the path of three teenage boys and ended up walking in front of them for several steps.

And you know, you can tell when someone is checking you out. And as you may well also know, teenage boys are neither quiet, nor tactful, nor aware of anyone but themselves. Kind of like their bigger counterparts in that sense. So from behind me I heard this...

"Man, she's hot."

And then silence. The kind where you know there is a whole lot going on but nothing is being said and it seems to last for an eternity.

Then the silence was broken by his friend, using these words...

Dude! Ewwwwwwwwww! She's like...A Mom."

And suddenly the mind bubble was burst. I now feel every antiquated day of my 36 years.

But I'm still gonna wear my skinny jeans, converse, hoop earrings and layered T's.

There's gotta be some senior citizen out there who still thinks I'm hot!

Oh, that's priceless! Well, focus on the compliment of the first part, though was it a little weird to hear that from a teenage boy? I wouldn't know- I am more "quirky" than "hot" in my jeans, swirly colored gumboots and hats. I get "ma'am" from male youth-it ticks me off when they say that. I feel like a young miss. Anyways, great story- made me laugh, you hottie!

I have to come back to tell you that I am now singing "don't you wish your mama was hot like me!" in my head.

Out of the mouths of babes....

Although, I'd just hear the words, She's hot and pass out from a coronary.

Well, in the eyes of one teen you are still considered hot. I have been the recipient of those kinds of comments, but not by any man. Be thankful.

Stopped by from Growin with it...

This post cracked me up. I recently was on my way to work and stopped by this certain bread bakery. One of the workers ALWAYS flirts like crazy.

I am not as flattered, since he is close to my father's age...YEESH.

At forty years old, the bloom is fading on this rose!

I have to tell you. I feel the same way. I am 46 years old and I need a complete makeover. I am not 36. I am not 26 and I definetly am not 16 anymore. I just cleaned out all my closets and sold a bunch of stuff at Second Addition.
Now I am looking for someone to make over my wardrobe.
Honey, wait until your my age. I still look hot (I think) well at least my husband thinks so. I am a little fluffy around the mid section. So I am still waiting to read about those diet tricks of yours. What is it? Pancakes and waffles for breakfast several times a week?

Man, a comment like that keeps me grinning for weeks. Who cares about the "mom" part of it. These days I can't tell if someone is checking out me OR my daughter. THAT part is slightly freaky.
You always HAVE been a mega hottie .... with great hair too might I add (: ~K

ROFL!!!

When I was prego with my first and lived in a subdivision, I'd go walking every night. I'd laugh if a car of young guys would drive by and honk and holler. If they would only look in their rearview mirror they would've been horrified!

Just wait until a pimply faced teen asks you for your number at Walmart. You haven't LIVED until that happens! :snort:

You are a HOT MOMMA!!!

Just wandered over from the Grocery Cart-I love your blogs!
I think you should dress young if you want, just not toooooo young. Take my mother-in-law for example. She's 60 and I've seen her thong peaking out more times than I can count. Eeeeewwwww!
