    I’ve known for a very long time that discovering other’s deficiencies made me feel better about my own. Now I know why – the “ministry of mediocrity.”

  • OK. I’m SO going to do it, but no screaming and calling security! You asked for it.

  • I shave my legs, literally, about 4 times a year. You’re cool. And one of my best friends, another single mom to another crazy dramatic f/time effort kiddo who clashes horribly mine when they’re not loving each other? We trade off on who washes whose dishes. Every Single Playdate.

    Thank you. For this.

  • I appreciate that someone else says they don’t have a perfect house. Recently, I commented to someone that my kids made some elaborate Brio layouts in my old house. I have not a single picture of these works of engineering. Why? Because I focused more on the fact that the house was messy than in recording the moment they were being kids.

    I love it! makes me feel better that now it’s winter my legs probably resemble big foot’s. At least I can take comfort in the fact that the face is held together (until lunchtime at least).

  • Dammit, I knew I should have gone to Blissdom instead of Aruba that week…I could have avoided the whole shaving thing!

    Great guest post :)

  • [...] her a couple of weeks ago, and it’s posted today. So for some classic old-time-Jenny-fun, go check it out! Then, you will understand why I’m letting Sophie tear up packing peanuts all over my floor [...]

  • I have hairy legs AND shredded cheese on my floor! And I’m so much more comfortable around friends who live in – and accept – the same level of real-ness.

    However, all that being said, I would just die (DIE!) if I had to let someone touch my hairy leg. Please, please tell me that won’t be happening at Blissdom!

  • I can show you many imperfections, but I’m totally plucking and waxing before I come.

    I’ll show you some stretch marks, if you like. LOL

  • I love this post because I was feeling down on myself this morning. I haven’t had the greatest week with my weight loss experiment, and I really want to see immediate results. Thanks for reminding me that it’s all good, we don’t have to be perfect. :) Peace.

  • How nice of you to rat me out on SOMEONE ELSE’S BLOG!!! I just want to say for the record that today my legs, pits and chin are hair free. But I do have some gas. Just so you weren’t feeling bad about all my perfection :)

  • I hear you Jenny! I really do. You’d think after all these years I’d be OK with my vast imperfections but it gives me hives to think of someone (other than my family) seeing a dirty floor or feeling my unshaven legs. There’s an embarrassment deep within me that just can’t seem to get over. But admissions like these do help me know that I’m “not the only one”.

    Just please don’t ask to use my bathroom! Eeek!

  • Jenny, I love you.
    Perfect post.

    January 16, 2009
  • Oh so true! I do shave my pits every Friday (that’s today!) but my legs get done every month or so…or longer. Whatever! And I’m the first to admit that I’m a sucky housekeeper.

  • I don’t know what you speak of.

    Dirty house? Pshaw.
    Unshaved legs? Pshaw.
    Ponytail? Puh. Shaw.

    And now you caught me in my lies. You speaka da truth in my life.

    How great is this!?! and how true it is.
    For some reason, I feel like I can go home and justify the 3 day old food on the floor.

  • My floor looks like that. Only the carpet is a bit more stained. And crunchy.

    And my leg is not only HAIRY it is dry and ashy due to the freaking frigid weather.

    I sound incredibly hot, don’t I?

    Dont ever detest your mediocrity. As long as there is no mold or poo, it’s all good. You take care of it when you can.

  • I will show you all my imperfections, but I was seriously gonna shave before I came because my kids just said my legs were “hairy like daddy’s” so, I didn’t want any women to think I was a dude dressed like a chic! But, it is a good point Jenny, girl!

  • Am I the only one that is really really glad I didn’t attend that mommy-blog-conference? EWWWW. I don’t want anyone touching my leg. And I don’t wanna touch theirs either. That is the creepiest thing I have ever heard a conference speaker suggest. I mean I get the friggin point and all. “We are all flawed”…blah, blah, blah…and “none of us are perfect”….blah, blah,blah….but TOUCH MY CALF? EWWW.

    And BTW my floor has 3 day old cheese on it. But my legs? I shave them every friggin day, even if some stranger is not gonna touch them.
