Motherhood Agrees with Me!?

I was at the Dentist office today (a crown, $688.00, in case you were concerned about my poverty level this week) and my Dentist says to me.... "Well, motherhood sure does agree with you, you look great". My first reaction is THANK YOU! I mean, come on, who doesn't welcome comments that feed your ego, and make you feel good for having banana smeared across every inch of your clothing. But while we were waiting for the "sleepy juice" to work it's magic, I began thinking about that compliment. Hmmmm, Motherhood agrees with me... What does that mean? That for 30 years prior to being a Mom, I looked like shit?

Just wondering.

Ok, you're doing what I do. Bad Mommy. Take the complement. It was well meaning. I always look for under the radar meaning, but here, I think it's safe to say your dentist was telling you look great. And you do Girl!

Oh, please! At least motherhood agrees with you! If my dentist saw me, all he would be thinking was, "Damn, that girl looked way better before she had kids!"

You look great...enjoy the compliment!
