Cooler Than Me....

So I have been doing some catching up on blogs lately, and I realized the majority of people are cooler than me....You know who you are. So instead of writing a blog about what I have been doing I thought I would let you all in on a few things We/I didn't do:

For instance:
I did finally make it to Long Beach, but I
didn't put any sunscreen on anyone, (it wasn't hot)! I did receive an award for Mother of The Year, though it wasn't an official award, but I could see it in people's eyes that they wanted to nominate me.

Easter did come and go but we
didn't make, buy, or even attempt to have any Easter attire this year...We didn't meet Obama, hear his speech and shake his hand, but we did pass this guy on the street and take his picture...
I
didn't take Abi to Preschool one time this year, but thanks to a wonderful Grandma and cousin she still graduated with honors. Thank you, thank you....
I
didn't miss the first school performance Olivia has ever actually engaged in....

We did make it to the Chilcote Family vacation, but we
didn't all fit in our tent....

We
didn't go to stadium of fire, or the Rodeo, or even a block party....but we did see these:
For all of you who are feeling better about your lives after reading this post, just know this....I have truly in under a year mastered the art of "simplifying". Goal accomplished. If you don't do anything, nothing is complicated and everything becomes simple. Peace out.

Whittney, you have achieved self-actualization. You know... the truth is always the best. Thanks Whittney and family for being absolutely, adorably, wonderfully, fantastically honest.

you freaking crack me up. I actually did like reading your blog rather than the others that post about the million activities they engaged in this summer. Thanks for allowing me to not feel like a piece of shizzers. I like the simple life.

i'll tell you why no one is nominating you for mother of the year, it's because you never blog! i come here week after week only to see the same post i've read a hundred times. i happen to think you're fairly interesting, and still rather funny, so pick it up will you? and for heavens sake at least tell us all if it's a boy or a girl! Yay!

I second the motion for TELLING everyone if your baby is a "girl one or a boy one"! Or are you guys being surprised--it is pretty fun that way too! So I know you were trying to show how NOT cool you are, but because your blog is so much more interesting and funny to read than MOST peoples...you kinda LOST the uncool competition. Keep trying though...it makes us all laugh. And I'm really happy you made it to Long Beach--and you're not even in trouble for not telling me you were in CA. Sometimes you just need a trip without visiting ANYONE. Love you girl! Can't wait to see that adorable little squished face whenever he/she shows up!
