I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your diary. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either.
To love The Beach Boys. It’s crazy that some people my age just blink at me when I say this.
To think it’s cool that my daughter says that Everyone Poops is her favorite book.
To not be able to watch the part in the movie ET when ET turns white and is dying.
To be insulted that I wasn’t invited to William and Kate’s wedding. Come on, William, our birthdays are so close together. That should account for something. Plus, I know a lot about Henry VIII and yes, that doesn’t mean much to you, but still. I do know some royal protocol. I imagine things haven’t changed too much from the 1500s. Aside from the whole chopping off heads thing.
To think Charlie Sheen should just shut up. I hope he’s happy, his tirades have cost a lot of people their jobs on Two and a Half Men. But what does he care, he’s a millionaire. Who is an ass. And who is apparently tired of not acting like he’s special. Or some nonsense that he sputtered out.
To be unsure if I’ll purchase the DVD Bambi that is out today. As I recall, I cry during it and I’m not sure if I want to explain to Natalie what exactly happened to Bambi’s Mom. (“Er. She went off to…hang out with Tinkerbell.”)
To not believe that my son will be 9 tomorrow. NINE. Next year he’ll be in the double digits and moodier than ever, I’m assuming.
To need the blue swimsuit with the matching swim cap for Natalie that’s on the Gymboree site. Seriously, she needs it, she has no swim suits at the moment.
To be confused as to something I saw on the show Parenthood. The parents didn’t tell their son, who is 9, that he has Aspergers. I told Tommy right away and he doesn’t use it as an excuse. Sometimes he’ll go, “Can I get the Autism out of my brain?” and I’ll explain that no, it’s forever unless someone finds a cure. Then he’ll go, “Maybe one day I’ll find a cure.” But I’ve always been open with him.
To have not watched the Academy Awards but was amused when I read that Melissa Leo dropped the f-bomb during her acceptance speech.
