Morgan’s Mom Says…

My Mom is sort of famous in our family for being unintentionally hilarious. She’ll say things that aren’t meant to be funny at all — you can tell by the ultra-serious look on her face — and when she does, my brother and I will slowly turn to look at each other with this blank look on our faces, then just start busting up laughing.

Also, Mom has always been quite protective of her chillun’s, and quick to tell us if we’re doing something that isn’t appropriate, but she’s very nice when doing so. This is the funny thing about Mom… She’s ALWAYS nice, even when she’s being mean. Tell me, HOW DOES THIS WORK? She has powers.

Also, she’s great and my favorite.

And she’s reading this so I’m being very, very careful right now. (Love you, Mom. Don’t hate me.)  That said, I have a little story for you… and depending on how well Mom takes this post, I may be making this a regular feature on this blog. She’s blessed me with a ton of material.

When I was 18, I think I briefly considered getting a tattoo because I thought I was a real-live, badass adult and could do whatever I wanted and my parents couldn’t tell me no anymore. I told Mom about this tattoo dream I had for about 2 seconds because I told Mom everything. I figured she’d move on and forget about it as quickly as I had.

One day several months later, I was in my room (still living with my parents at the time) and Mom opens the door as I’m changing my clothes. I jumped and quickly covered up my exposed boobs.

Mom: WHY are you covering up?

Me: MOM! I’m changing! Close the doooooor!

Mom: Did you get a butterfly tattoo on your boob? You’re hiding it right now. I know this.

Me: No, Mom. I’m just sort of naked and don’t want to flash you. I promise I don’t have a butterfly tattoo on my boob.


  • I briefly mentioned this tattoo I wanted, NEVER saying it was going to be a butterfly.
  • Mom thinks that because I cover up when someone walks through the door, I’m naturally hiding my new butterfly tattoo on my boob.
  • I was just being modest, I swear. No butterflies. And certainly not on boobs.

I have to give her props for being so specific in her accusation. What if she was right?? Do you know how amazing that would have been?

But she wasn’t. And now I write about it on my blog. Love you, Mom.

  1. i definitely definitely vote for “Morgan’s Mom Says” to be a new feature b/c holy cow am I a fan of your mom and this girl needs more hilarious stories. LOL!!
    I seriously love that she thought you had a butterfly on your boob, can you even IMAGINE the hotness that would be right now? OHMYGAH. hilarious.
    You were definitely not covering up say, your nipples. Nope. Just your butterfly tattoo.

  2. Mrs Priss…you really light up my life and I Loooove you! You are so smart and so pretty just like me! I even gave you the number one spot on my page for an award! hehe! Come check it out!

  3. LOL! Sounds like something my mom would say but I would have reacted differently and rolled my eyes and probably told her yes just to piss her off.

  4. mother’s instinct is really their power and our moms are really the best friend we could ever have. They really know when to comfort us.But moms can really very funny too! I like this feature! I would definitely follow this!

  5. That is a great story! I vote for more :)

    When I was 16, I called my mom and told her I peirced my nose and one of her close friends signed for it. It was a magnetic fake. She cried before she even seen it. So dramatic that I felt kinda bad, lol.

  6. hahaha Awe, your mom sure does sound like a wonderful sweet mama! I vote for regular installments too :)

  7. Does your mom know MY mom?? They would be friends. The first thing you said about how you just look at your brother blankly then start laughing…. we do that too!!! And my mom has been texting lately… and when she messes up, she won’t fix it, she just assumes we know what she’s saying. Seriously predict-text is no mom’s friend. When I was 18 I was woken up in the middle of the night to my mom strip-searching me for tattoos or piercings because she had a “dream” that I got something. So invasive!! lol
    Moms are awesome. Can’t wait to hear more about yours!

  8. Her: You know I’ll be reading these stories. :)

    Renanda: SOO funny! That takes serious guts, man. I don’t think my mom would have handled the nose piercing thing that well either. Even if I were to do it NOW. Ohhh man.

    Kourtni: I just sent your comment over to my mom in an email. That made me laugh sooo hard just now!

  9. OMG That is so funny, aww bless Morgan’s mum, defo be a good feature if she doesn’t mind. Love the new design by the way x

  10. What is so wrong with a butterfly tattoo on your boob? I’m offended. It was cool when I got it!

    just kidding. that would HURT! On your boobies?! Yikes!

  11. and on the flip side, if you hadn’t covered yourself up, she would have thought you were comfortable just flashing anyone and everyone that may walk through the door! you really couldn’t win! ;-)

  12. I kind of wish you mom was right, not because I am a big fat perv but because you are right-if she was spot on that would have been super amazing mom powers!

  13. this is way better than the time that I told my mom I actually GOT a tattoo when I was 18. I came home, was trying to be SO brave, took one look at her and cried. She freaked and thought I was pregnant!!! Then when I told her what had happened she called me white trash ;) lovely!
