That's Why I Am the Cool Mom

Don't ask me why - but I just spent the last 3 hours before bedtime [for Wallene] teaching my thirteen year old daughter how to sign my name.

I think the words "forge" and "illegal" were bandied about, although I am not quite sure.

It was a blur of pens.

heehee

Oh funny. I got thanked for reminding MJ to wear sunscreen yesterday and I thought I was a good parent. Hmm you really are racking up the misdemeanors. Let me know when you get parole

Hee Hee indeed!! I think you should wait for the outcome of the illegal Mynx parcel before you start creating any more misdemeanours!! LOL!

I think my mom purposely made her signature easy so we could copy it. ;)

My son impersonates my husband for me on the phone all the time regarding various accounts we have because they've been put in his name and since we've got these "new" privacy laws, they won't talk to me. My husband refuses to deal with financial stuff so that is what I must resort to. I'm sure you have your reasons and if Wallene is as good a kid as I know you raised, she will use her powers for good and not evil.

Let us know if we need to come bail you out of jail!

I hand my toddler the phone whenever a salesperson or collection agency calls. (And then pick up the extension in the bedroom!) This has led to some mighty hilarious moments.

LOL - I was always too afraid to even DO anything that would require my parents' signatures, let alone forge it after-the-fact. Amy used to forge mine all the time until she got caught in using a personal pronoun ("I" instead of "her") in one. That was really quite funny. She was only excusing herself for being late to school, which I'd already said I wouldn't do.

BTW, I found another Mickey watch. this one is the "original" Mickey and it's on an expansion wristband. Want it? It needs a battery, too.
