When I grow up

When I grow up I want to be a lawyer and protect the underdog from the nasty people.  I want to be a Veterinarian and save all the animals.  I'd like to be in law enforcement and get rid of the bad guys.  I want to be a teacher and help young people reach their goals.  I want to own a busy boutique and sell beautiful things that I can play with all day:)  I want to be famous and wealthy so someone can make me dinner for a change.  I want to write a runaway best seller and go all over the country to book signings.  In reality I am a dentist with a ton of experience and talent and I sell discarded unwanted items to people who actually want them.  I'm a mom, and I'm important to at least 4 people and they are very important to me.  So, I may never get to be what I want when I grow up but I am what I am and it has to be good enough.  Why doesn't it feel like it is?

The Pretty Committee

My daughter came home from school today and told me about one of her classmates starting a club called the pretty committee.  She said this girl would let you be in the club if you are 1) pretty
2) popular and 3) have friends that are guys....first of all, who gives a shit?  and second of all...who wants friends that are guys??!  That girl has a thing or two to learn about life.  Pretty and popular is not always good and friends that are guys are almost never good;)  Anyhow, Hope was upset because she didn't want anyone to get hurt because of some stupid chick being...well, stupid.  She's a good gal my Hope is, I do love her so much.  We let the right people know so that they could nip that crap in the bud but I have a question for ya....I'm starting a Pretty Committee and you have to be genuine, honest and loyal to be in it, you girls interested?  First meeting is at my house and you can only come if you bring wine.
