You know that point in your life when you basically have to hunt for quarters before you go shopping and that is limited to which milk is the cheapest and where have they hidden the day old bread now?
And your yard was like a postage stamp or dirt with some scattered rocks and the kiddie pool had holes in it but it would kinda work if someone blew more air into it every few minutes ....
And you prayed that no-one saw you using the hose being as there were water restrictions and all and the last time you had a bathing suit was some 10 years earlier and now swimming was basically mostly done in a porcelain fixture in a room that also housed the toilet, a sink and lots and lots of fisher price bath toys. AND even those moments were stolen - usually in the middle of the night when you sacrificed another decadent luxury for the privilege .. sleep ...
You had two choices ... nude or with your clothes and being as you could not afford to get arrested and your neighbour hates you and would love to call the police .. again. So you climb in with your clothes and try to close your eyes for two seconds and are so disappointed the heat from your body changes the water into a sauna in no time and the side of the pool begins to sag and the water runs out and you sit there and cry a little bit because you are hot and tired and hungry and one of the children has woken from their nap and screaming for you. The moment has come and gone. Like your life seems to have...
That's when you are most grateful to be able to turn on the television and see Miranda Kerr talking about being a new mom and the hardships of balancing a modeling career, a new baby and a movie star husband like Orlando Bloom. You see her in designer clothes, being chauffeured around and the nanny taking the baby so she can go to her personal trainer and lunch with her agent before going to get her hair and nails done for the week. It is such a reality check. That's when you look at your own life and are so grateful you don't have HER problems.
