I certainly feel like I am a cool mom, but I wonder what our 14 year old son thinks. When I was little, I did not think of my parents as cool parents. But now when I look through old family photographs, I think my parents were sooo cool. My dad’s Afro was perfect and his polyester printed shirts and dress slacks were coordinated to a tee. He had to be cool in that brand new Black Chrysler Cordoba which was nicknamed the Love Roller Coaster. And my mom, she was so fly…. her lip gloss was the shiniest and her outfits were the flyest…. the gauchos.. the riding boots… They had to be cool…I just did not know it.
But now-a-days with the rap music, the music videos, and 106 and Park, it is easy to stay in tune with what the youngsters are in to. I definitely can be caught “Cranking that Soulja Boy” around the house ( pregnant belly and all), I can shake it like Beyonce, and for my 6 year old….I think Troy from High School Musical is cute too. But right now, I really don’t care if they think I am cool. I am sure I lost many cool points the other day when I told my son he had 2 days to get that nasty fowl music off of his IPOD before I confiscated it or when I told him he could not wear shirts with skulls on them because we do not wear that type of stuff in our house or when I tell him to come in the house before it gets dark because there is no reason for him to be hanging out in the streets after dark.
