new top ten

(again... from my parenting magazine)

top ten things not to feel guilty about....

1. having the impulse, after discovering your kid has used your $20 lipstick to draw a giant plum-colored pig on your dining room wall, to call up Brad and Angelina and ask them if they'd like to take in one more

2. returning the fancy but useless baby gift to the department store and spending the credit on shoes for yourself

3. suspecting that those stars who got their prebaby bodies back in two weeks are on drugs

4. feeling secretly glad when you catch your neighbor's 'perfect' child in a nuclear meltdown

5. introducing your sister's kid - little miss organic only- to her very first twinkie

6. setting up playdates just with kids whose mothers you like

7. calling your jiggly belly your 'mummy tummy' ten years after childbirth

8. noticing the hot dad at dropoff (hey, you're just lookin'!)

9. insisting on grown-up music in the car

10. knowing, really knowing, with every fiber of your being, that your kid is the cutest one in his class picture

Top Ten

(i found this in my Parenting magazine and thought i should share...)

Top Ten Ways Your Life Is Not Like a Reality Show:

1. your morning weigh-ins are mercifully private

2. no hope of trading up to a millionaire, housecleaning husband who lives to give foot rubs in wacky wife-swap episode

3. you drive a ford, shop at target, and drink diet coke all the live-long day, but no one gives you a dime for product placement

4. you endure hours of grueling photo shoots- but they're all at Sears and come out in wallet size with a faux-nature background

5. the only Extreme Home Makeover you're getting is courtesy of a 2-year-old with markers

6. you'd like to see Top Chef make three different dishes (one kid food, one vegan for your tween, and one that actually tastes good for you) every single night

7. you really did marry your big fat obnoxious fiance (and what's worse, no one paid you!)

8. you never get voted off- even if you beg

9. you're surrounded by 'real' housewives-but like you, they haven't shaved their legs in days

10. you know What Not to Wear, but nothing else fits since you had kids
