The Stepford Lives

6 Oct

I think I can honestly say that I have never associated myself with the Stepford Wife stereotype.

Pretty sure if you have read more than five lines of this shit-tastic blog, you can tell that I’m not what one would call “prim and proper” by any means.

But two years ago (woot!), we moved our family to a master planned community and now live on a tree-lined street in a gated community that some friends refer to as Wisteria Lane.

(And let’s just say that with all the fucking drama that goes on in this town, Wisteria Lane is a pretty accurate depiction…)

I used to laugh at matchy-matchy families in their Mom-mobiles.

Okay, so I still do.

But I never laughed that hard.

Enough bullshit. The matchy-matchy family is kind of what I aspire to be.

So when I saw the Hanna Andersson catalog featuring matching family outfits, I knew it was just a matter of time before I successfully turned my family in to this:

minus one kid cuz that shit ain't happening

And coming to your computer screens this winter will be the first (of many, I’m sure) Bee Family Photo featuring super cute matchy-ness!

It may make you gag.

It may make you vomit.

But I’m determined to become prim and proper.

If “prim and proper” has been redefined to mean “inappropriate and shameless.”

    I actually call it “Pleasantville” and I picture all the houses in color except yours which is for sure the black and white one on the block! Do you really want to be in color like the rest of them? Speaking from a gal who lives as the queen of the mobile home park that sits below her land!

    Resist the temptation, Mama Bee! I’ve barfed enough in recent weeks.

    Heh heh, too late, Arla! The clothes arrived in the mail today! If it makes you feel better, I think Mr. Bee’s eyes almost rolled out of his head when he saw what I had bought. Bee and I on the other hand were/are giddy with excitement!
