Mommy Musings…On Whorishness, Nannies and Robin Thicke

Mommy Musings… taken from this morning’s run What’s less damaging to our kids: moms incessantly on their cell phones, scolding and supervising between sips of latte or the nannies who congregate on street corners to gossip while the babes sigh boredly while strapped in their strollers? When did I suddenly realise that my mother wasn’t being just a pain in the you-know-what when she’d leave the car in the driveway with the trunk open so that the next person home next would bring in the groceries? When will the short shorts for pre-teens thing be over?  Judging by the shops windows, I’m still in the minority when it comes to not wanting my 10-year-old daughter to dress like a whore. Will having a cheeseburger undo the benefits of this run?  What about a grande latte? Do we even need serum or is it just another marketing ploy like breastfeeding pillows and anti-cellulite cream? And why, on the Oprah.com website, do they have 2 contradictory posts about how long to wait between applying serum and applying moisturizer written by the same person 3 months apart?? (The first post says you don’t have to wait at all, the second says 5 minutes…) Why can’t I get the songs from Cats out of my head even though I’ve got a kicking playlist in my ears right now?  The Blurred Lines/Macavity Megamix is sure to be a top 10 hit. Wait a minute, why is that song even on my playlist?  Oh right, cause it’s so asinine and infuriating, it makes me run faster just to get through it. Can I call it a run yet?  5k’s ok, right?  Right?  Right.  Good.  Glad we got that sorted.  Now where’s that latte…
