Comments: Am I a Rorschah Test?

Mo's correct. Brains and beauty combined.

Shoot, not in my mirror. Dang, there are some big dark circles; this latest project is taking it's toll.

I overheard my daughter telling her friend once that I was "wicked smart". Now, we're from Michigan....I don't know why the work wicked was used...but it felt good nonetheless.

Bou you know this kid is going to think your the bomb, because he will be comparing you to his mom and depending on what his mom does/has done it won't be anywhere near what you do.

So I'd go with him having a kid crush on you.

Too funny! It reminds me of how the kids describe my military service. "Yeah, my mom was a space cadet." No Lie. That's how they describe my assignment at NORAD in the space surveillance/missile warning center. At least you get to be beauty AND brains! :o)

The handwritten Mother's Day card I received told me I was the best mom ever because I'm a good cooker and I say I love you, but after giving hugs and kisses and thank-yous, my middle child explained that I was indeed the SECOND coolest mother ever. The second. Guess who's the first coolest mother ever? Mrs. You, mainly because of your incredibly cool job. But also because you look kind of like a fairy princess (his words) and because you totally GOT Lord of the Rings and presumably didn't look away when scythes made contact with necks, like his not-quite-as-cool mother. And this he remembers from preschool, what, 8 years ago? Regretfully, I so agree with the child. You are the coolest.

Leigh, I am laughing so hard, I can't quit. Holy crap... May God Bless that boy of yours from here until eternity. A fairy princess.

He's so dang sweet. I'm hoping my sister reads this. She's doing a *blink* 'My sister?' Heh!

I didn't flinch at the scythe, HOWEVER, upon an opening scene of LOTR II, a head on the pike, I looked at my husband steely eyed and said, "THIS is NOT age appropriate. Got it?!" as I could see him sitting on the big bed with the boys and a bowl of chips watching this upon video release... Bones being what? 5? Gah!

As for boy crushes... I'm thinking probably not. (I'm still loving the fairy princess...) Paul was so not getting what was up with Rick. None of his buddies have kid crushes on me (THANK GOD). I think it is the novelty of it all... I definitely don't fit the traditional woman thing. Never have really...

Except, dang, I'm really loving the fairy princess! No joke, that may be the sweetest thing anyone has ever said about me. I'm not kidding...

I'm thinking that unless you rock a boost-em-up, false eyelashes and a pocket protector, you're never entirely going to live up to his fantasies. Fortunately, you work on stuff that breaks sound barriers and carries awesome weaponry. That should at least give you decent street cred. (*Giggle*)
