the other day the girlchild did a "quiz" on facebook that told her what she would look like in 20 years. it told her she would be all about doing drugs, and look terrible and wrinkly. i pointed out that there was no way she was going to be wrinkly, and as far as the drug thing went, NO WAY. then her mom, who only has contact to her through FACEBOOK, left a comment about how in 20 years the girlchild will be 34 and at 34 she had "8-pack abs" and everyone tells her all the time that she only looks 25. that's great! she's fit and looks young, but you know what? i'm raising her kids. i'm glad she's so hot, but some of us who are actually living with kids, making dinners and working and paying for health insurance, helping out with homework, buying school clothes, don't have time for 8-pack abs. i'm not just fussy because i'm a chubby stepmom, but because this woman gets to pop in with her two cents anytime she feels like it because she's the "real" mom and OF COURSE her life is more glamorous than mine! she's single and unencumbered. i'm so glad her job is a natural workout, it would be nice if that job didn't just make her thin, but also paid for some child support.
she's also missing out on awesome times with her own kids. let's hope those awesome abs give hugs and thank her for being around.
