Introducing....the Restless Housewife

Hi y'all! This looks so fun!

O.K., so for anyone reading this that doesn't know what I'm doing...this is my official Introduction assigned to me by "The Bad Mommy Blog". I look at it as being initiated into a club. It feels more...mysterious.

1. Post a picture of your kid(s).

This I will have to pass on. I don't feel comfortable with the idea of a picture of my 18 month old daughter floating around in cyberspace. BUT, I would be happy to describe her: SHE'S PERFECT - unlike her mother.

2. Tell us all 3 things we wouldn't know about you.

1. I bartended for 8 years. Drinks anyone?!
2. I quit drinking almost 3 years ago when I got pregnant with my daughter.
3. I was painfully shy as a child and as an adolescent. Boy - am I glad that's over!

3. Tell us some things we wouldn't know about your kid(s).

1. She's a "halfy": half East-Indian (me) and half "White-American".
2. She's fearless...she's not scared of ANYthing. This scares me.
3. She LOVES "good" food. She would prefer green beans over a slice of cake. Is this kid really mine?

4. What quote/saying best describes the way you feel about being a mommy?

I'm horrible at remembering phrases and sayings, but this is something my best friend told me before having my daughter that I think Steve Martin said? I hope it's not too syrupy it goes:

"People tell you how much you're going to love your kids, but no one tells you how much you're going to fall in love with them."

It's so true.

5. Who's your Famous Mommy Role Model (haha, like there actually are any good celebrity mommies)


I was going to say Britney, for laughs, but at this point, I just plain feel sorry for her. Which BTW, can someone say "undiagnosed postpartum...gone bad"?

I'd have to say, as annoyingly perfect and smily as this couple is: Jada Pinkett-Smith. I think she wrote a book for her daughter or something. She's pretty cool. Beautiful, strong and has Will wrapped around her little Pinkett finger. Oh, and Faith Hill. She seems like a really really loving, sweet mom.

6. If you could have one wish granted for your kid(s), what would it be?

That she truly loves and feels good about herself, and is able to handle all challenges life hands her with patience, confidence and acceptance.

Oh, and that she'll never leave home. Kidding.
