My Name is Selena and I Have Man Envy…


Your Man Envy Is Showing

Good Day Blogger Friends and Family!

It’s been way too long since my last post and now that I’ve settled into my CRAZY schedule my posts will be a lot more regular…ahem, your honor I’d like that stricken from the record on the grounds that it might contaminate the jury.

Now onto the topic of the day.

I, phenomenal woman and scholar; splendid beauty and poet, magnificent handi-work of the Holy One, sure can brag on myself, can’t I? I, Selena, have Man Envy and apparently, it’s showing. Want to know what Man Envy is? Hmph. So would I. Well, keep on reading and when you find out, PLEASE let me know. So, here’s how it really went down…

Okay so Obi MalcolmWanKenobi’ s been going on and on about how he’s “becoming a man.” For the last few months actually and frankly I was really only left with one choice–I had to ignore him. I mean really. The boy’s only 12! How many boys become men at 12??? Exactly. Anyway, we’re on our way back from church and I leaned in to give him a hug and well, the rest is history…

Me: oh wow, honey are those hairs on your face?
Him: uh yeah. I told you I was becoming a man. See? You’re always neglecting me. What kind of mother are you?!
Me: the kind of mother that insists that you stop using her mascara brush to darken those fuzzy things you call hair! Uh hello! That stuff is expensive!
Him: you know what your problem is? You have Man Envy! That’s why you’re always hating on my man hairs.
Me: what?!?
Him: yeah I said it. You have Man Envy Mom. And it’s showing!!
So there it is in a nutshell. I have Man Envy and apparently it’s showing!! LOL!!

      Interesting is an understatement!! I could dedicate a whole blog just for my son and daughter who thinks boobs should come with a clip-on option that way “they can be easily stored in a drawer until you need them.” LOL, kids are amazing!

      Thanks so much for visiting!! Don’t be a stranger. =))

    Hey interesting blog, just have something to ask you, what comment blocker program you have on your site for cleaning up comments since I get so many spammers on my blog.

      Hi Marlene!

      Glad you stopped by! =))

      To answer your question, I just use the comment blocker that WordPress uses. I believe most blog sites allow you to adjust your comment settings which give you the choice to moderate your comments. I hope this helps. I’m not at all a tech person so if this doesn’t help, let me know. I can refer you to a few tech gurus I know. =)) Have a wonderful day!!

    This is hysterical! If he is thinking of stuff like this at only 12, what will he think of when he’s 15 and 16?!!?
