Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

They all looked at me like I had 2 heads.

I woke up this morning and was like "Ya know what? I want a coffee and hashbrowns. Alone!" Got up, threw my hair up in a bun(mind you I've been sick for a few days), put on some clothes, and went to my old fave diner. I hadn't been there since I broke up w an ex (2.5 yrs ago). I walk in and they ask if it's for one and I said yep. Sat at the counter and they all stared at me. The 6 cashiers standing together. And then they whispered. O.o Is it so bizarre for a mom to want a coffee and hashbrowns alone once and awhile??

I think it's really weird that they did that.  The only thing I can think of is - how crazy was that bun on top of your head?  Because surely they serve people eating solo all the time.

If I ever see anyone I know while I'm out alone I get weird looks, too. Lol

Not that crazy. Just a regular bun. Red long sleeved tshirt, black zip up hoodie, and some jeggings. Maybe it was the jeggings? But there were tons of college kids wearing sweats tucked into their ugg boots, obviously hung over. Lol. I do have circles under my eyes bc I'm jiust getting over being sick.

I NEVER get the chance to just relax and eat slowly without having to say "Stop playing w the salt!" "No, you cannot just eat jelly for breakfast." "MAPLE SYRUP IS NOT A DRINK!" I enjoyed my coffee slowly and savored each bite of sunstandard hashbrowns.
