This is going to be short and definitely sweet! If you watch Modern Family then you will understand this post!
Today I was compared to Julie Bowen (Claire) and Sofia Vergara (Gloria)… twice! I was told I am the mother and wife that is all Claire with the look and style of Gloria. Hearing that from two different people made me laugh out loud!
I thought about it and realized that it’s a ridiculously perfect compliment.
Claire is a mother to be inspired by, always there for her children and would do anything for her family and she’s always funny. I would have to say I am just as crazy and neurotic, too. When Phil does something “funny”, I have also perfected that same look she give, the smile, look away wide eyed and shake your head.
Even my kids are almost like the Dunphy family. I think my older daughter has the brains of the middle child and the looks of the older one, I wonder where she gets it! ;) Then my youngest daughter is a funny and crazy as the little boy on the show.
And, being compared to Sofia, who wouldn’t be completely thrilled at that statement? But, also, I had raised my daughter without a stable father and with that I have that same sassy… I can do everything myself attitude. I have to be constantly reminded that sometimes people like to help. I even have the same talks loud enough for the neighbors to hear personality. And, given that I am Filipino, I also have that hot blooded ethnic thing going on, which I think is only great in the bedroom.
I really appreciated this compliment, it really made me smile!
