Blink And You’ll Miss It

14 Apr

Quick! Grab a picture! Write it down in your calendar. Un-DorkMommy had a lapse. She had a moment of weakness. Episode IV has lamented the fact that she doesn’t have anybody to “dress same” with.

Bless her wonderful, amazing, Olympus-sized heart. Un-DorkMommy would do anything for her kids — including suspending (however briefly) her aversion to the dorky practice of wearing matching shirts with your child. She assures me we aren’t going to see this sort of thing again for a long time – until after we can get matching UCLA shirts for the whole family.

For now, Episode IV is walking on air. Her smile is massive.

On my end I’m smiling just as broadly, but on the inside. I don’t want to crack the thin, fragile dorky layer that is only just now forming over the vast ocean of un-dorkness that I married and love so much.

Like everyone who knew Bill Gates as a child will attest to, dorks always win in the end. To use the vernacular of the species Dorkus Maximus:

“Resistance is futile.”

    A round of applause for the temporary-dorkmommy.

      I tell you the diplomacy involved was akin to negotiating nuclear disarmament between coldwar super powers – 12-party talks spanning several years and numerous administrations. We’ll see how long the fragile peace can hold

        I LOVED “dressing same” with my Mommy when I was very young. She even sewed our matching dresses. I thought she enjoyed it just as much as I. Was she a Dork ? Maybe YOU received some of her DorkDNA ? Your girls are gorgeous. Great choice by you, and great choice she made for the matching outfits !!
