Fair of Face ~ Monday's Child (A Correction)

Yesterday I really didn't know what I was going to write about. I kind of had a feeling, but it just wasn't clicking for me. I finally put something together but it really wasn't my best post or my favorite. But it did turn out to be my first CORRECTED post. A concerned blogger....er, lurker (MY MOTHER) let me know that the real meaning of the nursery rhyme "Monday's child is fair of face," is not that the child has pale skin (like I do) ...it is that she will be pretty in the face. Well, she was concerned that everyone who reads this (who is her age and remembers the original meaning will think I have become quite taken with myself and those who are closer to my age (not revealing anything here) will think what I did, and that it meant a person who has very white and pasty (LOL, definitely me in the winter time) skin.

So, thank you Mom, for the correction. The last thing I want is for my blogger gal pals to think I am stuck up!!!! Unless of course, you happen to think I am pasty AND pretty, then ok.

Also, I told her I wouldn't do this...but since I'm here typing. . .

My Mother would also like to start her own blog, but doesn't know what to call it yet. If anyone has any great suggestions (and please try not to think about today's correction).... I would love to share them with her. She likes to write, read, watch movies, and go antiquing. I joked and told her I would have a giveaway for the best one. Which, I may still do if there is something fabulous and she actually uses it.

For now, I will keep pondering a title over and see if she has come up with anything yet. This could take me awhile... LOVE YOU, Mom!

Cute post! I give your mom lots of credit for contemplating writing her own blog! My mother doesn't even own a computer & never looks at mine!

I had the same impression of Monday's child as you! Good thing your mother set us right! This brings a different spin to "My Fair Lady" as well!

Just found out I'm Monday's child. People have always said I'm pretty but can't believe it. Thank you. I'll consider it a gift from My Mother.
