I'm So Uncool

My daughter, Drama Diva, informs me that I am "soooo uncool!"

My offense? I wrote "Oh my goodness" instead of "OMG" in my last post.

Horrors! I hope the cool police don't find out.

Quite honestly, I've been working for years to get the "cool" out of my system. Been there, done that. And I didn't like it.

To save my children from being too cool, my goal as a mother is to raise a houseful of nerds. Nerds don't get into trouble. They do their homework, come home long before curfew, and they don't date.

If my children grow up to wear pocket protectors, own glasses taped up in the middle, snort when they laugh, and walk around with toilet paper stuck to bottom of their shoe, I will consider myself a great success.

Shhh, don't tell Drama Diva!

You are cool, Mrs.W. :P
There are two different kinds of "cool", by the way. A "bad" cool and a "good" cool. Usually, Catholic Homeschoolers are cool the "good" way. ;)

Hi Lisa!!! Hope I see you at the New Year's Blowout!

Mary Ellen, I was so looking forward to taking the nerd test, but when I got to the website it was just gambling, mortgage, and other spammish links. Bummer!

Have you guys seen Napolean Dynamite yet? Napolean and his brother Kip and totally hip nerds.

We're going to watch it for New Year's, because it is so funny.

Cool nerds of the world unite!

Yes, children #3, 4, and 5 do great imitations of Napoleon. Unfortunately to the point of annoyance =:-O.
