the real housewife

I have no idea where those casting execs at Bravo find their 'Real Housewives', but they've missed the mark.  This is what the life of a real housewife looks like:

Child in pajamas (at 11am), dog underfoot, groceries spread about, and the kitchen baby food factory looking anything but camera-ready.  Puffs, baby bottles, sink full of dishes, cookbook open, and behind the lens- an unshowered ponytailed mama.  A rainy Monday tailor made for staying inside and embracing domesticity.  

I suppose shopping sprees and grand fetes do make for better TV than a messy suburban kitchen.  Ah, well.  I'd take this version of reality any day.  Not that I'd turn down a shopping spree.  I'm domesticated, not dead.

And just for the fun of it, a few pictures of A from the weekend.  Who is this super-sized child and what has he done with my baby?

You and me both. You'd think since we're home all day the house would be spotless and dinner would be on the table at 6pm sharp. Ha ha ha ha ha...

I love it! Never a dull moment-- and 100 tasks going on at once. Go Mommy! :)

When they started running previews for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I had these exact thoughts. Why not the Real Housewives of Metro Nashville? I've got planty of drama for the Bravo network. ;)

LOL, you crack me up! I can't even imagine what it would be like to live like a RH, their lives are just insane!

Anderson is getting cuter and cuter with each new blog entry!

Is Mr. Anderson standing in his crib - is he pulling himself up?

There are seldom days when Kaden, let alone myself, is out of his jammies by 11am. I'm happy to see that you're living the life a TRUE housewife!
