You might be a reformed white-trash mom if...

I've heard you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl. Once a country girl, always a country girl?

Is that true for white trash too?

What I mean is, maybe I'm white trash and don't know it. Or maybe I'm still white trash -- just a little bit reformed.

Tell me what you think:

You dress your child in camo,

but the pajamas are from Baby Gap.

You own a pair of faded, frayed shorts like this,

but you never wear them.

You often look like you're still in the 80s,

but only because you just woke up and haven't done your hair yet.

Your husband keeps a pair of rusting motorcycles in the yard,

but, well, I have no defense here.

Well, I can't beat the shorts, but I have way more stuff rusting in the backyard than you can shake a stick at. Try a whole car and some industrial baking racks. Oh and we even have old farm equipment that trees have grown around and into. Does that count if we weren't the one's who left it there? :)

Don't stress - I'd say you're definitely reformed! Just holdin' on to a few things for memory's sake, which is a good thing!

are you saying big hair is a problem?

One time I used the diffuser on my hair and it was pretty big, but I thought it looked pretty good. I came out of the bathroom and my husband wanted to know which glam rock group I was getting ready to join.

I pulled it back that day.

Are the motorcycles up on cement blocks in your front yard? If so, you're totally white trash.

I just love how you are so willing to just put it all out there - camo pj's and all :~)

yes, Damselfly.

You are white trash.

Good grief.

I guess the question is, are the rusting motorcycles in the front or backyard? If proudly displayed in the front, then yes, you are white trash and proud of it!

Or maybe if you have an extra mattress sitting in your hallway because you don't want to take it downstairs. Because you know, an extra mattress in the basement is always a good thing. You never know when some extra friends or family might need to spend a couple of nights on your floor!

I don't even think it makes me reformed. Just lazy AND trashy.

But the shorts. Oh, the shorts!
