Adam and I enjoyedÂ a much-needed weekend in Seattle without the kiddos recently, and we attempted to keep most of our conversation “adult” (i.e. not revolving around our babies). Wow, that is difficult! We managed, for the most part.
At lunch on Sunday, we somehow began discussing pretty movie stars. I had accused Adam of only being attracted to “exotic” women (Salma Hayek is pretty much his dream girl), and he got all bent out of shape.
Adam: That is SO not true!
Me: Name a non-exotic movie star you think is hot.
Adam: Blake Lively.
Me: Shocker. Every man is attracted to her, she’s got those “I’d rather be in bed” eyes.
Adam: Is that what it is? Man… you should work on that!
Me: Ummm… I’m pretty sure as a mom with a full time job andÂ two kids under the age of 3, I ALWAYS have “I’d rather be in bed” eyes.
Seriously though… I’d rather be in bed. I haven’t blogged in 3 months because every time I have a second – you guessed it – I’d rather be in bed.
So, SuperMommies – you can now tell everyone you’ve got “bedroom eyes.” Unless of course you’veÂ got some special secret for waking up completely rested and ready to go, and in that case, start talking.Â
(That pic of me is totally from 2010 when Ellie was a baby… but I assure you I still have the same eyes. There may beÂ slightly darker circles under them now.)
