The Mother I Would Have Been Ten Years Ago...

Do you remember your "baby project" days? (Gasp! Get your head out of the gutter, Mommies! I do not mean those days!) The "baby project" I'm referring to is that week-long stretch of time, often during your junior or senior year of high school, when you were forced to carry around a baby/egg/sack of flour in a basket and pretend like it was a true reflection of motherly responsibility? In retrospect, I would love to invite any of those high school kids to come spend a day in my house. Sack of flour in a blanket-coated basket, my hiney

Anyways, over the weekend, I waxed nostalgic as I flipped through the pages of my senior yearbook and caught a glimpse of my self as a mom, or the mommy I would have been, ten years ago. Errr. Maybe I should rephrase. Take a look for yourself...


Teehee. Nice one, Ashley Paige. Pretty sure you'll get some flack for that one at the reunion. Happy Thursday!

  9. We had the "real" babies that would actually cry, need to be feed and if you let the head snap back it would fail you. I remember hoping I got the bad baby thinking it would be more fun, it wasn't.

  11. Haha! I love it.

    Our Catholic high school definitely did not do this. So, I am just practicing my motherhood skills on my dogs :)
