I am embarrassed to say that I have seen a few episodes of Jersey Shore, but I am not embarrassed to tell you that I grew up in NJ. That is not an accurate depiction of the entire state, just a few select exits off the turn pike. But before I get really off topic, the reason I bring up this train wreck of a show is that this summer they all worked in a t-shirt shop on the boardwalk. And you could create any t-shirt you wanted.
As a mom, I have started to notice that I say a few phrases way too much and am asked the same question way too many times. So maybe I should just get a t-shirt made. This t-shirt would save me loads of time and energy, and cut down on annoying chit chat. It would tell the world what I am thinking 90% of the time and how great would that be?
So this decision begs the question what would my shirt say? It’s a tough call. But I’m pretty sure my shirt would say on the front – I’m tired and on the back it would say – I don’t know what is for dinner.
So don’t ask how I am doing, you know the answer. Don’t ask me to work late or volunteer for yet another committee, I’m tired. And honey, you already know the answer to that question, so why do you bother asking me every night?
I’m sure in different phases of motherhood the t-shirt will evolve. Right now I am getting into full blown toddler phase and my shirt might start to say – you have until the count of 3 to stop (fill in the blank).
What would your t-shirt say?
