There’s Something You Don’t Know About Me
There’s always something you learn about someone that surprises you, right? For example, I have a co-worker who loves hip-hop/rap/gansta music (not sure what the kids call it these days). If you met her, I think this fact would surprise you. She’s preppy. She loves Lilly Pulitzer and Vera Bradley and pink, pink, pink. But she also loves Macklemore, Jay Z and Kanye. I’ve known her for years and I still find this fact surprising.
Another mom I know is a pretty healthy eater. She cares about where her food comes from and how it was grown. But on a road trip, her favorite place to stop is Burger King.
Me? I want a tattoo. Desperately. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to designs that I think are tasteful and won’t cause regret years down the road. I want something that isn’t cliché and means something to me. I love the way they look and always love when a mom gets one later in life, you know, after the typical college or spring break tatoo spree that seems to happen.
I just can’t do it though. Every so often the urge strikes me and I want to just stop into a tattoo parlor and do it once and for all. I carry the photo of what I want on my phone just in case. But I just haven’t been able to make it happen. I have no idea what’s holding me back. I mean, I gave birth twice with no medication so how badly can it really hurt? I’m thinking maybe for my 40th birthday, I’ll finally add it to my list.
Join me and ‘fess up. Do you want or do you have a tattoo you got after having kids? What is the one thing about you that would surprise others?
