See that really pretty girl, up there? Well, her name is Caitlin Crosby and she is a singer-songwriter in her twenties.
Yeah, I don't remember what it was like...either.
However, raising 1 tween and 2 teenage girls (no, I haven't forgotten about the boy) who fight with image issues, as early as the 2nd grade (yeah, I know!) aaaand then...every...blessed...day...for the rest of their lives...well, it IS slowly (and painfully) coming back to me.
"Oh great, another pop tart!"
Being a mom (or dad) is hard (understatement of the year) but, IMO, parenting teens and tweens, at an age when female performers are advertising "sexy" as the new "sixteen," or "sexteen," if you will, well, my life IS downright rock-like.
Then again, us parenting-types haz flawz...too...aaaand, I'm not just talking about sagging breasts, or laugh lines, that continue running down, right to my butt, either!
[allows time for a mental etch-a-sketch]
Caitlin created a home-made and moving video highlighting all people from all walks of life embracing (and loving) who they are.
So, while I try to convince a couple of appliance delivery dudes that, "YES, you got the right house," and "I'LL MAKE IT FIT, DAMMIT!" please feel to grab a beverage and take a moment to watch (and listen to) FLAWZ:
Color me optimistic (or a little naive, even) but, I really like the message in Caitlin's new video (not to mention, her bangin' voice) and, well, maybe, juuuuust maybe, there IS hope for us parenting-types, too!
FLAWZ and all!
