He Get's His Good Looks From His Dad
So I went to Ace Hardware with Keegan and Lochlan the other day. A much-older employee, maybe in his 70s or so, came up to us and started chatting with the boys. How can you blame him, they are darn cute. Then he says to Keegan, "You must get your good looks from your dad."
I think my jaw dropped. Am I that ugly? Did I just not realize how awful I look? What has motherhood done to me? After a few more minutes chatting with Keegan he then says, "Ah, but your mom isn't so bad either."
Okay, that is not making me feel much better. So I finish browsing at Ace, walk across the street back to the car, load Lochlan in his car seat, then I reach for Keegan.
Keegan is wearing a shirt that says:
I Get My Good Looks From My Dad
So here I was, walking through Ace for half an hour devastated that an old man seemed to think I was a hideous ogre, and that Keegan's cute genes came from his daddy. When the man was simply remarking on Keegan's shirt! And I am the one who put the shirt ON Keegan that morning. Hello, Mommy Brain!
So all you parents, beware! Toddler shirts with funny comments might just make you feel inadequate for a minute ...or 30.
