Turn that frown upside down

Today I was having a bad self image day. I always do at the change of seasons when I have to find something that will fit over my big ass (and all other big parts). I was having a pity party for most of the day.

 Since I am on fall break I would have normally just sat around in my sweats and not left the house for the day, but I couldn't do that today. You see, The Boy (my baby) is in the band and he is a senior. Tonight was not only senior night, but it was also the very last time I would see my baby march on that field.

During senior night all seniors are escorted on the field by their parents and recognized. I didn't WANT to be recgnized...I was feeling fat, old, and way less than pretty. He is my baby, so I just had to suck it up and get over myself.

Just before we walked on the field the principal gave the seniors a flower to present to their mother. Now, I have to tell ya...The Boy almost never gives any kind of compliment. So when he does, you know he means it (or he's trying to get money). Just after they recognized him over the speaker he handed me the flower and said "This is for the most beautiful woman in the world."

The pity party has been canceled.

ohhhh that pulled on my heart strings. How nice.

I completely relate to the self image issues. I have my moments. I think it's ok to have the moments(I mean we can't control what pops in our heads) but I believe immediately after a negative thought, we can back it up with a positive thought.

I'm happy you went. There are people who wouldn't go sadly.

I love the post name. I'm going to remember to turn the frown upside down! :)
