an embarrassing easter day
The kids were finishing up the egg hunt, and I decided to have a seat on a lawn chair and watch the kids open their goodies. I wander over toward the chair, smiled at the kids, and then gracefully began sitting down when I heard this terrifying ripping sound. The next thing I know, I'm folded in half, my ankles are on either side of my face, my dress is up to my armpits, and my bum is basking in the sunlight. I was so squished that I couldn't even force my lungs to expand enough to call out for help, I just whimpered, "Sug!" My husband casually turned around toward my little dilemma, and I could have sworn he almost laughed at me, but he loves me, so instead he pried me out of my karma sutra position with the chair, and asked me if I was ok. He even waited all the way until we were in the car before he laughed his face off. Now that's true love. And to my kids when they read this 10 years from now... I'm sorry I embarrass you with my clumsiness and occasional nudity. I try to be a cool mom, but sometimes my awkwardness wins. Happy Easter!
