only a mother...

top & pants: Ross, shoes: Franco Sarto, purse: Vera Wang for Kohls, necklace: vintage, sunglasses: Michael Kors

  • would have the opportunity to wipe a poopy little bum that was being presented via downward dog while being serenaded with 'Kung Fu Fighting' by the owner of said bum.
  • would be okay with someone using her boob, bum, face, belly button, etc. as a "pillow"
  • would take delight in the response of "I know that" after telling her little guy how much she loves him
  • {or grandma--because they're really just the ultimate mom} would respond "Cool!" mid-bite while being told be a three year old how he knows that the pizza you're eating will turn into poop and that pop your drinking, well that will turn into pee.
  • could truly appreciate the talent in the off-key, monotone, more-like-yelling-than-actual-singing, three year old version of Adele's 'Set Fire to the Rain'.  "It's my favorite song," he says.
  • understands that "They hate me" in reference to his new flipflops actually means, "dear sweet mother, these fine shoes you have purchased me are quite aesthetically pleasing, but my little feet find them to be uncomfortable."
  • can comprehend the absolute, all encompassing, heart-melting-all-the way-down-to-my-toes, kinda love when tiny arms wrap around her neck.
  • should know better than to wear white pants around her dirt digging, raspberry eating,  leg hugging, little boy.
