In my first official act as "Mary Grace's mom" at her brand new school, I proved once again that I am a complete and utter tool.
I sat down next to two women who obviously knew each other. The one farther from me in the noisy cafeteria asked me if I had a pad. I dug through my bag for a second and said, "Sorry, all I have is this," as I sheepishly held up a size 1 diaper. Might work if you're desperate," I said with an apologetic shrug.
"What? Oh, no, I said a pen," she replied.
And I died.
If Mary Grace had been there, I'll bet I would have gotten my first, "Mo-THER!"
So I lied, "Well, hi, I'm Amy and I'm hard of hearing. Thought you said pad. Nice to meet you."
I can only hope that she forgets me by August.
PS - how is my baby already old enough for Kindergarten?
PPS - how is it that I'm this big a dork, and yet I still have awesome friends? Be honest, are you all just hanging out with me for comedic purposes?
