our A tattoo - All that's Jas

Thursday Favorite Things 214

Instead of buying a Harley or hot red convertible, dye hair in crazy colors – or even worse get a hairpiece, quit our jobs or each other, we got inked. Boring as we are, that’s the extent of our midlife crisis.

Since we each have our own kid(s), we wanted something to share. Between us, we have four beautiful granddaughters all of which names start with an A.

Grandma and grandpa went bit crazy to show just how much we love Alexia, Alaina, Avelyn and Alyvia. They brighten our days. As a bonus, my daughter’s name is Andrea and my husband’s middle name is Alan.Have you met my family?

Of course, we don’t think that’s the best way to show love, because it isn’t. It’s not like this piece of our skin will be left behind as something to remember us by when we die. We hope to leave a better legacy. But each time we look at it, we smile. It reminds us that, no matter what, we have our four little blessings.

If you wonder if we’ll get more tattoos, the answer is NO. For me it’s a HELL NO! That hurt like a cat scratch that went on for fifteen minutes. Besides, we don’t need to be walking billboards.

    Love your ink!! Yeah, it does hurt as they scratch the same place over and over again!!! None of mine are that small, so just 15 minutes sounds lovely to me!!! Hmmm, I have 2 M’s and 1 J so far, but with 7 kids, I’m pretty sure there will be more!!!

      Lol, good for you. No more ink for me. And if we get more grandkids, they better be named with an A or they won’t feel special, ha! Thanks for stopping in!

    You’re brave to get a tattoo. I don’t think I could stand the pain. I bet your grandkids will think you’re a cool grandma 🙂

    Unbelievable that you have so many “A”s in your family! I like how the they are small, simple, yet unique.

      Right? And only the two last ones were named so on purpose. We have more “A”s, believe it or not, but we didn’t do it for the sister-in-law or nieces, lol.
