This Is How You Stand When You’re Cool

I was in the kitchen the other day, and the kids were playing in the living room, when I heard Reagan ask Jonathan, “Why are you standing like that?” His answer:

“This is how you stand when you’re cool.”

Well, that was something I needed to see! After all, I want to be cool, so I need to know how to stand! Apparently, you need to stand like this:


I think the look on your face is just as important as the way you actually stand, as is the presence of your blankie! All the cool boys are carrying them these days. Aty least, they are at my house.

And in case this look is too difficult, the other kids were quick to offer their own equally cool stances. You’re sure to find one that works for you!

Reagan has achieved a level of coolness that is not for beginners. The foot placement is definitely only for those with advanced degrees in cool. And please note Jonathan in the background, still cool.

When I asked Thomas how he “stands cool,” he just started jumping around like a crazy person, and then wanted to see the picture. I told him he had to be still for me to take a picture, although I kind of wish I had just done a video. Here he is standing still AND cool.

So I hope this has been of help to you. Check back often for more ideas on how to be cool the JonZReaTom way!

Oh, I love this! Thank you so much for teaching me how to be cool ... I will practice my cool stance today while the kids nap. I hope one day my kids can be as cool as yours!

A note about the blankie accessories: When J. (or it might have been T.) dragged in a blankie I wasn't familiar with I asked him: "What's up with that blanket?" His answer? "No, this is a comforter." (Emphasis strong on the first syllable)
