On slogan tees… and that email about my teeth

About the look – I told you this was the coat for me so this probably will most certainly not be the last time you see it (in fact I met an old school friend last week who I had not seen for a couple of years and she said she knew it was me way down the street because of this coat and my social media channels…  where it is, apparently, a repeat offender).  Also this slogan tee is basically the best one IMO, I mean, it says ‘MOTHER’ and I can legit wear that badge with pride now – although technically I have viewed myself as a mother for over a decade, the vast (sane) majority of the population don’t count dogs mamas as true mothers…  whatever.

About my teeth – I received a super lovely and polite email this week from someone offering to fix my teeth.  And I am tempted.  I used the poll feature on Instagram stories and 78% of you were interested too.  I mean, my teeth have bothered me for years, well, technically, not my teeth…  just that one snaggletooth at the front, right up front and centre.  But my concern is this: the husband has a matching snaggletooth and if Hunter baby also grows the same snaggletooth would that be our endearing family snaggletooth thing?  And if I drag mine back like a good little soldier into a perfect lineup will I be left feeling like the odd one out?  And then be forced to move to Hollywood just to ‘fit in’ again?  These are the things that keep me awake at night…  and I have a three month old baby.

    It’s a shame that tee is sold out in my size as it does look like a very cool tee! 🙂 And I always called myself a dog mum before the boys came along – our fluffy one will always been our first baby, spoiled as he is, haha!

    No input on the teeth situation – but if you say no now, doesn’t mean you can’t change your mind later. 🙂

    Hope you’re having a nice start to the week. Nice and warm here today, a welcome change from the rain last week!

    This post made me laugh so much. I think you have great teeth – I’ve never been so sure if im a fan of the “perfect smile” so I would be a bit hesitant too.

    Dog mamas are definitely still mamas! When I refer to “my boys” it includes them too .

    I didn’t take the poll, but I like your teeth and think you should keep them the way they are.
