I'm Still Cool

*Remember when cool was having a brand new 64 box of crayons  with a sharpener built in? 

*Remember when cool was those shiny black shoes with a clicky heel?

*Remember when cool was a new  bike with a banana seat and streamers on the handlebars?

*Remember when cool was the micro mini dress? How about a maxi dress?

*Remember when cool was peanut pants and body suits?

*Remember when cool was when that cute boy noticed you? The jock....or the bad boy?

*Remember when cool was big, stiff hair and leg warmers?

*Remember when cool was letting the kids make their own pizzas on sleepover nights?

*Remember when cool was being the mom who let all the kids hang out in the basement?

*And now, cool means being the grandmom who makes the very best T-Rex shaped pancakes in the whole world and making ice cream cone cupcakes for no reason at all.

I remember all those things and you're right they were cool, but not nearly as cool as being a grandma. Don't you just love it? I know I do!

I do remember all those cool things though. I'm having a lot more fun now. Seems we are on the same page.

Have a terrific day. :)

I remember body suits and mini dresses, but what are peanut pants and a maxi dress? I'm going to have to Google those later. Maybe peanut pants are MC Hammer pants. Are they? Otherwise I'm clueless and maybe coolless.

You are now the best cool that there is. Being a grandparent is the coolest.
