So here I am waiting in line at the store. I look over at the next line and there is a young [key word there young and read between the lines : Childless] girl in the next line reading some magazine and I think to myself “I’m just as hip as her” So I reach for the same magazine as she is reading. There were bright pictures and loads of articles. Articles with titles like: Dress like the Stars, Great Sex in Under an Hour, Shoes you can Dance the night away in and Play the Stock Market; Aggressive is the Key to the Board Room. Ok as I look down at my daughter with dried ketchup on her face and my son whos shorts are backwards but at least put on by him I slowly place the magazine back in the rack and think “no, no you are not as hip as her”.
I need articles like: How to dress like you didnt just roll out of bed, sex; fact or fiction, How to sleep with your eyes open, Parenting from your computer Chair, and my personal favorite How to Mother without leaving visible marks. It is so hard to keep everything and everyone in check. Keeping the children safe, hubby so he doesnt one day decide he wants a divorce, friends who are mothers too thinking you are on the ball without making them feel like you are too on the ball, all while trying to somewhat make yourself happy. Oh yeah lets not forget the cooking, cleaning and bon-bon eating…… Crazymommys Good Housekeeping Tip of the Month:*Always keep several get-well cards on the mantel, so if unexpected guests
arrive they will think you’ve been sick and unable to clean.
