I usually am so distracted with my children that I nod or mumble or say yes to things that deserved a no. FOCUS CARLA! In the van there was a lively discussion about a movie. I tuned most of it out until I heard a question.
Tim "Mom what was the name of that thing in that movie? He was so big and had a jiggly chin. Remember?"
Mom "Um. Jabba the Hutt."
Tim "What?? NO! Not Star Wars!"
Nathan "Not Star Wars Mom! The Hobbit!"
Mom "Yeah it was Jabba the Hutt."
I used to be a cool mom. I knew the cool things and spoke the cool language and knew the names of jiggly chinned movie characters.
