Here’s a little snippet

On Monday, we’re at a friend’s house for a barbecue. The moms are in the kitchen making food. My friend turns to me and confides that she noticed my daughter’s underwear showing through her leggings.

Do I know? Yes, of course I do. Have I told her before not to wear those pants without a skirt over? Yep. Today I chose not to fight it out. I do mention to my daughter that my friend noticed, that it’s just not okay to let other kids’ dads see your undies.

Then I remember that the polka dots on my own bra are showing through my tight t-shirt. Yes, I chose the combination on purpose. I’m practicing, remember?

I am such a fucking hypocrite. I don’t want to be. But I do think that she needs to learn to be a good girl first.

So, did my friend notice the irony? If so, she didn’t admit it. She’s a good girl, through and through.

    Practicing for what?

    Sorry, that wasn’t clear. I just meant I’m practicing letting my edgy side show.
