Mom Got A Tattoo!

I went to see my mother today. I knew the Care Center where she lives was having a St. Patrick’s Day party on St. Patrick’s Day, and this was the first opportunity for me to visit her and see if she participated in the party, but more importantly, did she have fun!!

I can say for sure she had fun…!! First off she wanted me to see the little leprechaun hat they gave her. She said “it’s too small because it’s for a leprechaun.” I said “of course it’s small because leprechaun’s are tiny little creatures, but, you always told me they are as real as Santa.” She said “that’s right.”


Mom went on to tell me the Care Center had all kinds of Irish food, Irish music, and lots of Irish activities… like getting a tattoo!!! I said “I didn’t know getting a tattoo was an Irish thing..” But, according to my now 86-year-old mother, it seems the Irish do all kinds of things on St. Patrick’s Day that they most likely wouldn’t do on any other day of the year. Coming from my mother…all I could say was “who knew?”

Then she showed me her tattoo. She said ” your father and I always asked all our children, and grandchildren, not to get tattoo’s, but no matter how much we tried to tell them when they get old, and their skin starts to sag… they will regret getting tattoo’s…, most of them still got tattoo’s anyway.” So she said she thought she would get one so she could show them what their tattoo’s are going to look like if they live to be her age… (86)”

This, she said, is what a tattoo will look like for anyone who gets a tattoo at a young age, and lives to be my age (86). OMG!!! How funny!!!


But, she was dead serious about this when I questioned her about it as you can see here…

So I asked her if I could take pictures of her “tattoo”  and post it on my blog (not sure if she understands what a blog is) she said “yes, I want them to see what they are in for when they get my age.”

In my most serious voice I could bring up I said “well, mom, what should I say if anyone asks me why you did this?” She put her hand to her mouth and said “tell them I was just kidding.”


Gotta LOVE that right?

Stay Tuned!

      She did enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day activities Aunt Ellen and that means a lot because she doesn’t always get into a lot of the “other” activities the Care Center offers… it just depends on the day and her mood. XoXo
