The Parent Trap

I can’t believe I fell for it. Browsing through my most recent Parent’s magazine (cause I’m cool like that), a blurb on the front cover cried out to me: “See your kid on our cover. Quick! Visit parents.com.”

“Who?  Me?” I ask as I glance behind me. “You’d like to put my adorable, sweet little Anna on your cover? Ok!” And I ran to the computer and uploaded her little mug just as soon as my fingers would let me. It wasn’t until after I hit “submit” that I felt a pang of guilt.

I had become one of those parents. The one who thinks their kid is the cutest-wutest ‘lil munchkin ever. But doesn’t every parent feel that way? At least until the first time you discover the masterpiece of a finger painting they made just for you…in their crib…with poop. (Still waiting for that one.)

But can you blame me? I mean look at her. She is pretty darn amazing.

  1. I entered Adam in the Regis and Kelly beautiful baby contest, because he was such a PRETTY baby (he hates it when I call him that now). I like to think that the reason he didn't win was because they thought my picture was taken professionally (I took it), which would have disqualified it. How could he NOT win?
