Earrings


I love earrings--big ones. I didn't realize, though, that this earring obsession mattered to anyone but myself.

The other morning we were getting ready to go to the Library for story time. I had shoes and coats on everyone and we were about to get in the car when Maggie looked at me with a sort of shocked expression and yelled, "Mom!" "What Maggie?" I asked. "Mom! Your earrings!" she yelled. Then I realized that I wasn't wearing any. From Maggie's expression you'd have thought I'd forgotten my pants. I put on some hoops and we were out the door.

Thanks Mags, that was a close one!

I've got twin boys too. Mine are 21 now. They used to be cute like yours. Are yours talking to each other. That's incredible when they first start. I also have an interest in earrings.
Have a look.

like, hats - I have tried to pull off big earrings too. but they just don't fly with me. I just look like someone who is trying to pull off wearing big earrings! **sigh** anyway, i love how she "saved" the day! My coworker never goea anywhere without her makeup. She had her little grandkids over to spend the night last weekend so their parents could get holiday shopping done. In the morning, as she was getting all the kids their cereal, etc., the one grandaughter (almost 3) said, "Oh my! Grandma, you'd better go put on your face!" My coworker realized that her grandkids had never seen her without make up before. hahaha!
