I think it’s mad creepy. Of all the girls I know that put their mom into the “best friend” category they all dress the same if not too similar to their daughters and quite frankly while men may label them as MILFs I just think it’s straight up creepy. Perhaps I’m not one to talk considering there are portions of my wardrobe that I share with my mom, however I also feel obligated to mention that the items we share aren’t really designated for a specific age group ie; scarves. Seeing a 40 year old wearing Abercrombie and American Eagle is rather disturbing. Girls, If your mom is doing this, please, please, stop her.
I think a lot of the moms that these girls have are clearly their best friend because they can share “anything” with their moms. This is one of the most common forms of living vicariously. It’s soooo creepy, but we all know it happens.
Many parents try to provide for their family so that their children can have a better life than they did. Some pampering is acceptable, but over pampering, AKA buying your child’s love, is weird and another tell-tale sign of the MBF (Mom Best Friend). MBFs get manicures and pedicures done with their daughters after a long day of shopping where the daughter is inevitably spoiled. While at the nail song daughter and MBF gossip about friends and daughter shares almost everything about her life (sometimes everything). MBF gives her “mature and wisdom-filled advice” and then top changes.
Facebook is a location where MBFs can really make their marks. They’ll post on everything their daughters say and even add the peers of their daughters as friends on facebook. It’s unfortunate because the friends of this daughter think this mom is so freaking awesome because she’s like omg a mom that like acts like our age! WOooOooOooow!
It’s funny because MBFs tend to drink. They’ll even allow underage alcoholic beverage-serving parties at their house for her daughetr. All in a sad, yet effective effort to be labeled as the “Cool Mom.”
I’m sorry if you do consider your mom as your best friend and that you may potentially fall into one of those categories I set. As a sidenote, my mom and I have a grand relationship and I wouldn’t change her for anything, but she’s not one of those vicariously living moms! <3
No clue what they say. I believe the title says something like, “The End is Coming.” But I don’t really know. I just want someone to teach me French. I Love languages. Latin is madddd hard. Spanish is love. French is a desire. Tagalog is a guilt. Gibberish is a joke. Chinese is under review. :P
JK I have yet to read the book, but the one quote i know, “all animals are created equal but some are more equal than others” once sparked a profound thought in my mind and i wish I could retrieve that thought. I was a deeper level of thinking that I’ve failed to find in a while. I love books that make us re-evaluate our lives and surroundings. Which leads me to something I feel the need to mention though I must admit, it’s not important.
I like to read. At PT (Physical therapy) they give me magazines to read while I ice my knee after working hard. I’ll accept most anything there’s always something intriguing to read in any magazine. But this is how I break it down:
Smithsonian/National Geographic- This is my favorite. There is always some article on nature and animals or just random facts about everything random! Be it technology, animals, underwater caverns, etc, etc!!!
Gossip Magazines (US Weekly, People)- this i really only read to see what’s in style. I take pride in my sense of style. I think people can pull off most any outfit as long as you have the confidence to rock it. I think some styles shouldn’t be worn, even if you do have the confidence to rock it. I do believe i kinda contradicted myself. I guess what I’m trying to say is that here some fashionable items aren’t really as “In” as we believe them to be. I think it’s important to take risks. Feel great in what you wear. I love doing different styles too. I normally opt for preppy but I have this one tee that is more skater-ish and edgier and it’s so sick! I love fashion! I love feeling like i just stepped out of a magazine! (More about fashion some other time…maybe)
Cooking Magazines-these just make me hungry/feel like a gluttonous person. It makes me wish that I could make pastries like the ones I see. It makes me remember a saying that goes, “The way to man’s heart is through his stomach.” It also makes me thankful though bc I know I can cook when i’m not too busy eating the mixture or being distracted from the baking process. Yes, I love to cook, hate t bake. I know, baking is the easiest part, but I don’t need your sass. :P
TIME-Time is either a hit or miss with me. Mostly it sucks bc a lot of it is politics and stocks and thinks I have yet to truly care about. Every now and then there will be a main article that captures my attention.
Since there have been many a birthday lately I feel compelled to share my thoughts on Birthdays and Birthday etiquette. Call me a wet blanket and poo poo paroo it’s your birthday but just because it’s your birthday doesn’t give you the right to chuck all of your manners out the window. Sure your birthday is a day that those around you kinda dedicate to you, but sometimes people forget that the world does not revolve around them, regardless if it is their birthday or not!
Birthday Don’ts Per Recommendation of Me
Don’t wear a tiara in public you look like a 5 year old brat already, and all you teenage/preteen girls know exactly what I’m talking about. You want to wear that tiara, but don’t do it. DON’T!
Don’t act like a brat. When you pull the it’s my birthday card, make sure it’s legitimate.
If you’re gonna use the “It’s my birthday card” don’t use it in a whiny voice please.
Don’t have a countdown to your birthday; you look conceited
Don’t tell people to get you a gift unless they ask you
Don’t tell your friends to get you balloons for your birthday so you can walk around with them making you look popular. It doesn’t really count when you had to tell your friends to get you those balloons. You really only played the guilt card.
Avoid Posting, “IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!” as your status on any social networking site, particularly Facebook. People can see it’s your birthday dummy. If they wish to greet you they will. By posting said status you, yet again, look like you’re a bit too into yourself. However, feel free to thank people for your birthday wishes via a status update. :)
Avoid hogging all of the yummy goodies that people give you on your birthday for yourself (unless they are really that coveted!). All sweets and no exercise makes Jack a fat, fat, fat, boy. Share the happiness of your birthday with others :)
Well That wraps up my segment on Birthday Etiquette. I’m sure there are other things to add, or perhaps not! Maybe I’m just a person who has Birthday Blues? Idk, but I can assure you that I’m not so picky about Birthday Etiquette because I’ve have a crappy birthday or something, no not the case at all. Anything you think should be added I’d love to hear. :)
