10 Things I Can Do that Impress the Hell Out of My Kid

By caseymullins |

I’m counting down the moments until Addie is convinced I’m an utter loser who only exists to take her places and make her life miserable. I can literally hear the ticking in my head. Tick…you’re a dork mom…tick…drop me off around the corner mom…tick…do I have to be seen with you mom? I figure if I prepare for the inevitable it won’t hurt so bad when those first eye rolls begin rolling in.

But! At this moment! She thinks I am pretty much the coolest mom ever. I am creative! I am funny! I have a cool job! I’m pretty! I smell good! I figure I better ride this train for as long as possible because I’m going to be falling off in favor of boys and new friends oh so soon. I’ve gathered together a few things that Addie thinks are impressive about me, and now we can all sit back and see just how long this “cool mom” thing lasts. (Tick, tick, tick…)

Impressing my Kid

I Tumble!

I can still do the splits on my right side and pull off a wicked cartwheel. Unfortunately somersaults become more like assaults on your spine as you get older.

What do you do that impresses your kids?

    I’ll teach you how to garden if you teach me how to do hair. It just seems so hard.

    Holy crap! You really CAN jump!

    Hudson came out to the garage yesterday as I was using MY circular saw (note that I didn’t say I was using my husband’s circular saw) to cut some lumber, and then he watched me use MY drill (seeing a pattern here?) to attach the cut pieces together and build myself a box for the raised bed garden I’m attempting this year. He’s seen me wield the drill before, and he’s watched me stomp a shovel and swing a pick ax, all of which get you brownie points with sons. But the circular saw? I AM A GODDESS.

    (I had to look the spelling of goddess. It didn’t look right in all caps.)

  7. Marta says:

    I’m impressed by your jumping too!

  8. Danielle says:

    Thanks for the great idea for pictures! I take a weekly date with my four year old daughter and I think she’d love making this a tradition.
