I feel...

Remorseful that I left my coffee cup under the seat on the train (I tried to reach it, but I think it got kicked away);

Chagrined to have (internally) sneered at a woman pushing a boy in a pink stroller (I don’t like to engage in gender-stereotyping, and maybe it was a hand-me-down stroller, or maybe the child loves pink);

Bemused to have been given a disdainful once-over by the two-year-old who I smiled at on the way up out of the subway;

And tickled that a snip from an old post was picked up on Blogtations, even though the meat of the quote is really my child’s, not mine.

Speaking of disdainful once overs, this morning KayTar told me to get dressed and ready, because my hair "looks creepy".

That is a great quote on Blogtations!

Mental P Mama said...

Great quote! Congrats. And I forgive you for all that other stuff. It is Monday after all.

Aunt Becky said...

I forgive you, too. Love the quote, and I got one on there, too! Hooray!

And what a deserving quote it is! Too cute. Give that girl a corner office!

That was one of my favorite Miss M quotes ever....

Mayberry said...

Miss M. is brilliantly quotable! (So are you, though.)

MadMad said...

Oh, I remember that quote! (And I think you still get the credit, btw - you are her mom and you taught her what she knows!)

Janet said...

It's always flattering to be quoted! Congratulations.

Good quote and ya know it's only the beginning of the week.

Beck said...

Ah, strollers. One of my friends was given a horrible camo one and it was just too expensive to get rid of. She kept hoping it would break....
