Just a thought

I watched a Dateline special about the Obamas in the White House.

I just can't stop thinking about being the First Lady . . . I think I could totally do it.

(Imagine me photoshopped right next to Michelle.)

Like this. (Thanks, Lisa!!!)

How different my life would be.

I spent over an hour last week planning next week's schedule: making dentist appointments, finding babysitters, sorting academic work, penciling in free time.

I spent 20 minutes planning out the dinner menu for the week.

I spent who-knows-how-long cleaning the house.

I made two trips to the grocery store and one to Wal-Mart.

But if I were the First Lady, I would have a dedicated staff who did all of that for me.

And then how would I fill my time?

Speak about causes I'm passionate about . . . work out with my husband . . . go to the salon . . . hang with the kids . . . put in my meal requests . . .

I don't know.

I'd probably be the best mom ever.

I can totally see you sitting there next to Michelle Obama and looking quite comfortable. Nice!

Yes I often think if I had one of two or more full time nannies.. or heck even just a house keeper that cooked and cleaned, I would be a totally different mommy too :)
