How Shallow

Late night, early morning infomercials are the worst. Caught one for weight loss this morning. Lady on there said "It's so AWESOME being a hot mom!" For sure. You know what's even more awesome? Being a good mother. Who are you trying to impress? Love isn't blind, but it sees deeper than surface appearances that will fade (and in some cases completely obliterate) over time. What kind of message do you think you're sending to your kids? "Sorry Sissy, I can't help you with your homework. Mommy's on the treadmill because body is more important than brains." "Yes Jimmy, how a woman looks is most important." Kids should learn about healthy eating and excersize above how a person looks. Good behavior. Manners. Brains!! It's one thing to have a goal of being healthy to be there for your kids throughout their lives. But to strive to be a "hot mom"?! Your kids don't care how "hot" you are! In fact, they'll end up being embarrased or even scarred when their friends/boyfriends are drooling over you. Selfish. If your husband really loves you for you, he doesn't care what you look like either, so long as you're healthy and happy. If he does care, well then he's just as shallow as you are and perhaps you deserve each other. But for the sake of the rest of us DON'T BREED! And if you must, please, make sure you have the money to hire a nanny with actual morals. And let me know when you start to sag and fall and wrinkle up so Aaron and I can laugh our saggy, wrinkly asses off at your expense. Compatibility trumps appearances. Check and mate.
