Minnie Mouse: “I’ve Looked Better”

I was sitting on the couch, ignoring the kids while they ran around, jumping on top of John. John is not feeling 100% after traveling for business this week, so I looked up to ask him if he was alright. I don’t know how he responded, but he wasn’t  puking or anything, so I’m guessing he said, “Couldn’t be Better!” with a thumbs or something.

Nico stuck something on my head and I told him, “That’s nice,” because that’s usually what I do when he asks me something and I am too busy doing something SUPER important (i.e. anything other THAN something super important) to respond.

Plus I think teaching him about positive reinforcement is really healthy. Of course, this backfired the time he was holding the knife and I was on my iPhone and said “That’s nice!” and now he thinks that playing with knives is a good thing.

Still, it’s better than guns, I say.

Anyway, I went out a little while later to check on the kids who rolled out the door to play with John, again, who is not showing signs of dehydration, so I’m thinking he’s just being a wuss on the whole “not feeling good” thing. And then, WTF? John started laughing at me. I would say “That’s not nice!” except I figure if he’s laughing, that’s a good thing, because it’s better than him being on the can all day or something and REALLY being sick.

I came back inside and caught my reflection in the window.

Oh.

Self-portrait.

So, I don’t do reviews or anything on this site, because well, nobody really asks me to. Also because I would probably just say “That’s nice!” and you all know how much that means at this point.

Excuse me.

“Nico! Put away the knives!!”

God, I never realized how much he looks like an Indian/Italian/Puerto-Rican version of Chuckie when he’s armed like that.

Chills.

Anyway, I felt like I NEEDED to review this. This plush “Minnie Mouse” headband is wrapped in a velvet headband so soft, you forget it’s even there. The sparkly, glittery bow is perfect for making your eyes “pop.”

On top of that, people who have Disney fetishes can easily incorporate this into their repertoire.

No, John. Not you. Aren’t you feeling sick? Sheesh.

I got it with my daughter’s Halloween costume, but it goes with a lot of different outfits. And ladies, it doesn’t slip off your head or pinch you behind the ears. Plus if you have a daughter, you can always let her “borrow” it. Just make her give it back.

There’s only room for one diva in the house and Shaila ain’t gonna be it.

Not when I’ve got this on anyway.

I usually end my post with, Namaste. But that just feels wrong today.

So, Toodles!

Kiran

      Renee,

      This is so weird. As I read this, I got this weird shock of “deja vu.” I swear. Like, someone has said this to me before.

      And it has NOTHING to do with the blank looks I give people lately when they interrupt my “social media’ing.”

      Let’s read tea leaves together when we meet. Because I feel like that’s the next step for us.

      Oh, Greta. When I have to say goodbye when we part in Houston, it will be with an “Oh, Toodles!”

      You rock.

      Oh yeah. Actually, probably more like “Cosmo” to seek my permission to publish me in picture in mom jeans for the “Don’t” section.

      That’s cool. I do what I need to to get into modeling. It’s a tough world to break into, you know?

    I agree with Great – you really DO look about ten – a very mature and pretty ten though. I am going to start saying “that’s nice” a lot more around here. It’s so non confrontational!

      Ilene,

      Use the “That’s nice” in conjunction with the far off, sideways gaze. It keeps everyone guessing what you mean when you say “That.”

      A little mystery never hurt anybody.

    That’s nice.

      I am just a terrible mother. The worst is usually I am writing about BEING such a terrible mother and everybody is writing me back to say, “No, don’t be so down on yourself. You are SO great. You are trying your darnedest!”

      And I’m like, no. For reals. This is the third Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Shaila just watched.

      Natalie,

      Pink mouse ears make even Dr. Ruth look about 20 years younger.

      Because they’re PINK MOUSE EARS.

      But thank you. You should see me in my Brownies outfit. I look more like 9 then.

      xo ;-)

    Oh my gosh, I almost spit out my wine when you said your kid looks like Chuckie! It’s too much.

    Loving your blog. Feel free to stop by mine anytime!

      Dixya,

      Why do you have the Monday blues. You’re a pretty girl who is living it up in Texas eating healthy meals which make you a lot less bloated than me.

      That recipe that I can see through Comment Luv looks SO good. You would think I actually plan to cook the way I am salivating over it.

      xo.

    You are adorable. And I love the end of this post. I’ve heard that a few MILLION times in my toddler-raising life! ;)

      I was hanging out with my friends the other night. We were wondering why we all think it’s so funny that our toddlerish (2-3 year old) boys all leave the room with their hands swinging saying, “Oh, Toodles!”

      Ah, Mickey. I love him, even if he’s not that into Minnie. Or Daisy.

      Toodles!

      Oh, I know. I so know. I have to find out the best time of the year to go. I want to go when it’s at least “slightly” less crowded than every other day of the year, no?

      Was it packed when you went?

    You look like you are 12 in that picture – wow – you’ve got great skin (because I am guessing with two kids and a husband you are slightly older than 12…) So pretty. Minnie ears and all, inside and out ;).

      Thank you, Lisa! I’ll be 37 on Thursday. It feels weird to say that. THIRTY SEVEN. But even that sounds better than what my daughter thinks. She gets everyone else’s age right except mine. Right now she tells people I am 63.

      Obviously, she is not that impressed with my skin ;)

        Happy Birthday a little early! I just turned the big 4-0 in August. Talk about weird. I am waaaayyyy too young to be 40. But actually, I’m finding 40 to be rather spectacular so far.
        A friend’s daughter told me I looked like someone she knew the other day, and my friend said, “Oh that’s a compliment!” and the little girl said, “Yes because she (the woman I apparently look like) is a teenager.” And the mom said, “Well, she’s not a teenager, but she’s probably in her 20’s,” and the little girl said, “Yeah, and SHE (me) is probably in her 40’s or 50’s” – ha! Then another friend said, “That is what you call a ‘kiss’ and a ‘slap’.” LOL ;)

    awww… you look cute. There are other pictures of you where you look like Urmila Matondkar. It’s a compliment… not sure if anyone ever told you.

      Are you kidding me? What a compliment! She is beautiful. Thank you. I actually remember her because my parents owned an Indian store in NJ and I would sit and thumb through the Stardust magazines. God I LOVED those.
