Doing It Derby

Doin’ It Derby
My friends and I were talking about the fact that our best Derby days may be behind us.  You know those days where you kicked it until wee hours of the morning.  Your night didn’t consist of one parties, but trying to fit in as many parties as possible.  If you were connected enough, you didn’t have to pay to get into any of those parties.  During my prime time I was single and ready to mingle so I always had an outfit for every night and would buy them months in advance so I would have less of a chance of someone else having the same outfit. Those were the nights when you’d dance so much that you didn’t even realize your feet hurt or that your hair no longer looked fly.  Those were the days.  The days of my Derby past.  Enter Derby 2013 –

Confessions from my Derby 2013!

You know you’re getting old(er) when the highlight of your Derby Thursday night is seeing if Bailey is going to come back to work, Olivia and the president are going to hook up and if Cyrus is really the mole (Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal).

You know you’re a new mother when your “song” that you look forwarding to getting down and dirty to is Mickey Mouse Club House. “It’s the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, come inside it’s fun inside!….”

You know you’re a housewife when your Derby Day outfit is a pair of comfortable sweat pants a t-shirt and two socks that may or may not match!

You know you have an infant son when instead of coming home at 5:00am, you’re waking up because your child doesn’t know what it means to sleep in for the weekend.

You know you’re a homebody when you think about all the money you saved by not going to all the Derby parties.

You know you’re a proud parent when the best race of the weekend was the Diaper Derby at Daycare that your son won. Go baby go!

And you know when you’re in love when you’re husband is right next to you doing all the same things!

Will I probably attend a Derby party or event again in the future? Most likely so.  But, it also felt good to spend my Derby as a wife and mother at home.  Maybe I’ve saved up enough Derby points to go and kick it again next year…. or maybe we’ll work on popping out another entry for the Diaper Derby, lol!
