So I was “reading” Glamour Magazine and two things struck me:
1. Are guys really this inane?
2. The 100% Guilt Free Page is genius.
This page in Glamour has a few things that we all might think but no one says out loud.
I love it. So, I’m copying it and doing my own.
Hey, it’s OK!
…to love television-even bad stuff like the Hills
…to sometimes never change out of your pajamas
…to drink a beer or glass of wine before 5:00… on a Tuesday
…to think your kids are the cuter than everyone else’s
…to sometimes wish your kids lived on another planet-a safe one with fun things to do-but far away.
…to think your husband is cuter than everyone else’s
…to wish your husband would take the kids to another planet and stay there with them
…to love your hair/butt/arms etc. exactly as it is
See, isn’t this fun? What are your-hey it’s oks?

Oh good one Jess. That fits me to a T!
It’s OK to keep thousands of photos of your kids on your computer but have unfinished baby books!

Can’t think of any right now, but so totally love the TV one (I know there are more of bad TV junkies out there than are fessing up to it) and the beer/wine before 5:00 on a Tuesday.
pajama mom says
it’s okay – to throw that craft bead away – instead of walking all the way downstairs to put it away with all the other beads…
That is one of my favorite columns in Glamour magazine. I used to hang up a lot of them on my inspiration bulletin board in my apartment. – Cathy
