Count the Bad Mommies

narrowing my list to 7 things

Write a post in which you relate seven things that you are incapable of doing now that you're a parent.
  1. Going anywhere other than the front yard at the last minute - and even that requires deciding where to put the patio umbrella, finding a picnic blanket, gathering snacks & water bottles, and slathering on sunscreen
  2. Staying in bed past 8:00 a.m. without numerous requests for attention, breakfast, computer time, pigtails, lost toys, new toothbrush, et cetera
  3. Using the backseat of my car for anything other than hauling children or cultivating a granola bar farm from the crumbs
  4. Keeping a consistently clean & orderly house (I very much enjoy blaming that on parenthood)
  5. Being sick in peace (see #2)
  6. Having sex in any place the kids use for play [Needless to say, they may not play anywhere in our bedroom, or the garage. Or downstairs bathroom. Carry on]
  7. Pursuing a lucrative modeling career

Oh goodness...I forgot about the lying in bed late. I really miss that one.
