i treated myself to a new pair of jeans recently.

no, you do not need to adjust your screens. they are, in fact, GREY.

so, not only am i a total sell-out and am all over those Abercrombie skinny jeans…but i’ve gone grey. and apparently, just like it was 2 decades ago, grey is the new blue.

anyway, the point of my story is NOT for you to yell at me for being all 80’s in my grey jeans (well, i guess you can yell a little…but please don’t start throwing heavy objects at me until you see me in a bubble skirt and spandex…), oh no, this story gets better.

i spend a lot of time at the library. (and no, it’s not to get picked up by the 14-year-old boys…that’s just a bonus. relax, i kid.) i am searching forรƒโ€šร‚ย a native canadian novel that can be used as a read-aloud for grade 5. i know, simple, right? well, i go back and forth to the library, taking out and returning many, many, many shitty canadian novels. they are all CRAP. crappity, crap, crap.

so, this morning as i was bringing in my newest pile of, oh, about 15 books, i dropped one on the floor, and as i bent down to pick it up, i forgot that my new grey jeans were also my new, grey, extreme lo-rise jeans.

and i flashed the receptionist. my extremely big ole’ white arse.

you can start laughing now.

Josh: Mommy, why are you taking those fings out? (my contacts)

Me: because my eyes are burning.

Josh: oh, i get it. so, your glasses are like shields.

Me: um, i guess.

Josh: so, the bad guys can stop trying to burn your eyes. and if your glasses won’t protect you, i will!

um, okay, josh. go back to your star wars lego xbox game… (but hey, at least he’s talking!)

and she’s off!

bye Isabella! Today you are officially a preschooler! could you just DIE from this cuteness??!

  1. Hi, Have you looked at any Farely Mowatt books? They are great and I think as a read out loud perfect for Grade Fives.

  7. I LOVE that our girls are preschoolers now!!!
    I’m not sold on the grey jeans yet, myself. But, I’m so SURE YOU rock them — flashing white ass or not.

  10. Books for Grade5. Anne of Green Gables. But you know, I like the Emily of New Moon series even better. there are lots of other books by LM Mongomery (now on know as The Author) which is what she is called when you visit Green Gables on PEI.

  14. Hey Ali, The Feathered Cloak by Sean Dixon is pretty cool. The main character is a girl but she’s not very girly. Actually, I guess the real main character is a falcon. Anyway, it’s an interesting story but because the author is also a playwright, I think his style of writing is perfect for being read aloud. It’s only in hardcover right now – he had a book launch at my daughter’s camp. I think you can see the pictures on Facebook…

  17. Those jeans need a nice fuzzy pair of legwarmers.

  18. If those are the skinny jeans you were referring to, then that is not a problem. As long as they aren’t stretching to fit around your ankle. And sorry about my grammar, I know it’s bad.
