I have this book titled, I Was A Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids. It's easy reading and makes some good points, but I have to confess my favorite parts are the "Dirty Little Secrets" posted around the book. There is one that confesses a Mom in a TVless house breaks out the TV when hubby is away on business and lets the kids watch videos. Another is a Mom who has decided the 4pm is the new 5pm in breaking out the wine. However, my favorite is the Mom who has a "latte" name, I believe its Kim; and when she gets a latte she pretends she is someone else with a different life just for a while. That's the one I can relate to, I'm sure the one all Moms can relate to on a given day. I guess its a form of escapism, like reading. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade my family for anything, but sometimes I'd like to pretend be someone else just for a while by pretending to......
...drive a more exciting car (I do like my car though!)
...have a career that travels
...actually get a paycheck!
...live in a high-rise in a big city (you guessed it, Seattle)
...go out to eat....frequently
...attend a black tie event
...be so important I actually need to wear a blue-tooth headset on my ear indoors. Oh wait, no one is that important. He! He! Sorry if you do that!
I guess another term for it is "coffee name"but I think "latte" name sounds better. I would love to know if anyone else does this just because I'm quirky and I like to know that kind of information! I have not thought of one for myself yet, but I like the idea of using..........Paris (oh, but too bad Paris Hilton spoiled it)........Carla.............Anne Marie........Andie (My husband's not using it!)....I don't know. I'll let you know when I think of one. If you have an idea, go ahead and suggest it.
I'm tired.......I'm sure you couldn't tell!
Enjoy a latte today!
