I’ve thought about deleting “mommysdoodles” simply based on the fact that it doesn’t feel like me. My character, I mean.
In my head I’m not this 80’s movie mom, or a these-days instagram mom. I’m my head I’m cool. You know, like a Natasha Lyonne sorta kinda I-guess-you-could-say person…
But the truth is… mehh… I was never cool. I’m the Topher Grace of my friendship circle. Which means I make the coolest jokes but I’m not dateable. Or wasn’t, until I met my husband… but that’s a different story. That also means I am the board game night host and always will be.
My point is, there’s a whole universe between who I think I am and who I actually am. So, I think Mommy’s doodles could be a good fit. I mean, I am a mom, so that checks and I doodle non-stop… so… that checks too.
So of course, as I thought about this life-changing decision that was my blog’s name, I also thought about the 2 of my idols I mentioned above. I doodled Natasha during a meeting and I tweeted about it.
Apparently, I have a popularity problem on twitter but I did get the ONE like that make my day. From Mz. Lyonne herself.
It wasn’t about having someone famous liking something of mine… it was about the fact that maybe she liked my drawing. Maybe I was an artist? Maybe someday drawing could be my life?
Oh yeah, well, maybe.
It felt good though. To think that I can actually do things.
Oh well, good night, world.
