Mama's New Entertaining Look

I was reading my son a book before I tucked him into bed last night.  He interrupted me with this comment:  "Mama, you need an entertaining new look."

I stopped and glanced up.  "What are you talking about?  Am I not interesting enough?"

The boy shook his head.  "No, Mama."  He spied a sheet of stick-on mustaches sitting on his desk.  "I know what will make you look better."

He peeled off a black mustache and affixed it to my face. "There.  That's perfect."

I continued reading with this thing tickling my nose.

Bubba started giggling.

I wrinkled my nose, trying not to sneeze.

Bubba giggled some more.

I attempted to read, but was interrupted by Bubba's fit of laughter.  "Bubba," I said.  "Are you going to listen to this?"

"I'm trying to, Mama.  But your new look is so entertaining, I can't focus on the story!"

  1. Next comes him wanting you to dress up as all the characters of the book. Good luck.

  5. My mom once said "You should dress up as Bonnie and Clyde". So I was like, "Okay, sure, take me to Spencer's so I can get a mustache". My picture as "Bonnie" was my Facebook profile picture for a while. haha

  7. Hahahaha. And of course ... no pictures.

    PS: Yes, that Bug is one content dog, for sure. That's my little beagle shepherd mix. She is one smart little cookie, that one.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. There actually are pictures, but there's no way I'm sharing them. Not only am I sporting a mustache, but I'm also in my pajamas. My husband says my PJs are cute, but I'm not letting the general population weigh in on that! ;0)

    2. Well, I tell ya, I'm trying to get myself to do
      food videos and that scares the pants off me.
      At least you're brave enough to use your mug
      as your avatar. Me, I'm dressed like a potato,
      dressed like Wonder Woman.

  8. Bubba's imagination really goes wild sometimes, doesn't it? He certainly did give you a new look.
