Self Esteem Plummeting

Wow. My self esteem is spiralling downward drastically today.....:) First of all.....while on our walk this morning, Sean and Jake are urging me to jog uphill. I absolutely positively could not even attempt to do it because I was already exhausted so I just had to tell them, through my panting, that mom can NOT run up hill today!! Then, I was singing, "Hey, Soul Sister" to Jake today and you know the part where it goes....."hey eh hey eh eh eh eh......" I was doing that and actually not feeling like it was the worst singing job I've ever done when Sean yells out, "You sound like George of the Jungle!" AND just now, I pulled my hair up to straighten it. Sean says, "you look like a monster!" Wow. Last week while shopping and trying on clothes, Jake called me fat and told me all the clothes were too "wittle." Oh well........I guess I can use this to my advantage. When they're older, I will just have them read this poor pitiful post and let out the tears .....right before my birthday:)
Haha.

Leslie said...

HA! That is hilarious. I mean, not the part about your self-esteem plummeting...but, you know, everything else. :) If I were a kid, I would totally want you for a mom. Any mom who sings Hey, Soul Sister to her kids is awesome.

TOTALLY agree you should use this post in your favor later! "Remember that time you made Mommy feel bad...thinking you need to do the dishes tonight!"

You are WONDERFUL don't let them boys keep you down!

Jessie said...

You are amazing! I am sorry it's been a hard day! I love you. That is all.

Adelyn used to get mad at me when I didn't put make-up on. She was probably embarrassed to be with me! Kids are definitely not easy on our self-esteems. You are so great Lori; I am glad that you can laugh about it.

Lara said...

Lori, you are awesome and beautiful! Don't let the kiddies get you down. Landon does the same thing where he will say, "Mom, your tummy is REAL big!" yeah, nice. Kids can be brutully honest sometimes and it can really get to you if you let it. Chin up! It will get better. :)

Jaimee said...

Oh Lori! You're probably the most beautiful, wonderful person I know. Don't let all those boys get you down. By the way I sing "Hey Soul Sister" to my kids all the time and occasionally Rylee sings it to me but she always sings "Hey Ho Sister". Gotta love kids :)

Jen said...

sorry about your bad day :( Things will get better♥

Marlee said...

Oh you look beautiful! Don't let it get to you!!

You don't know me, and I don't know you, but I stumbled across your blog and after reading this post I just had to comment:

Aww... I know how you feel! I think I am a totally hip mom, and not in that obnoxious-trying-too-hard kinda way, but my kids just roll their eyes at me or say I'm embarrassing them...

Although recently, one of my son's friends said I look like I could be a Senior at their HS, and that kinda made him see that I am in fact a cool mom.LOL!

Anyway hang in there! And from looking at your pics, I have to say you have nothing to worry about!

Doreen Vasquez said...

OMG I am so sorry I just noticed how old your blog post was!!! Yikes, I bet you think I am "spammer"!!! LOL!
I'm not! Like I said I just happened to come across your blog.

Sorry!
