The Glamorous Life

Our MOMS Club had their annual "Academommy Awards," a ceremony that celebrates the end of the school year. During the party, eight different awards are given out, for such things as Most Friendly, Most Organized, and Most Involved.

For some reason, I was given the award for Most Glamourous. I hate to admit it, but I was pretty proud of myself. I do always try to look my best, and it was nice to be recognized for my efforts. But I've never considered myself to be "glamorous." Maybe Best Effort to Look Her Best Besides the Fact That She Has Two Small Children would have been more appropriate, but I don't think it would've fit on the certificate. I guess in the Mommy World, wearing lipstick and clean clothes makes you "glamourous."

So at the next event, this one mom pointed at my clothes and said snidely, "Hmm... I would've expected something more from our Most Glamourous."

Great, I thought. Now I have this "title" to live up to. I just smiled at her fakely. "I knew you were coming, so I dressed down a bit," I told her, taking my seat.

And I wonder why I wasn't voted Most Friendly...?

She was obviously jealous...Isn't it funny how adults can still act like they're in high school? Sad.

MOST GLAMEROUS??? I don't know if we can be friends anymore. Well, ok they do say that opposites attract, so maybe we can. I'd be voted MOST IN NEED OF A GOOD HAIRDO or MOST ANNOYING LAUGH, I'm sure of it! Congrats... that's no small feat!
