Look, I get it. I get that the whole MILF thing has evolved into some “you must be perfect and look as if you’ve never been pregnant or looked at a cookie” mentality. I get that Britney gets called fat just because she doesn’t look like she used to – and that’s wrong. I get that Salma Hayek heard ALL about it because she actually looked pregnant with her entire body, and not like she was smuggling a basketball.
However, I also remember the I heard the term and how hard I laughed. (Sitting in a theater watching American Pie.)
It was awesome. Those two teenage boys licking the frame and going ape over Jennifer Coolidge.
I mean LOOK at her. She’s hawt, yo.
She’s hot and she does NOT:
1. weigh less than 110 pounds when her body is meant to weigh more.
2. look like a 20 year old when is she twice that age.
3. have skinny thighs.
1. carry herself with confidence
2. dress for HER body type
3. exude an “I could be the best thing to ever happen to you” aura
And THAT, my friends, is what I have in mind when I think of MILF. I’m done being a little girl, and I’m sick of all the images that keep trying to tell me that I’m supposed to aspire to be 15 forever.
So tell me, who is YOUR role model for being fabulous at any age or weight?

When Alex was three weeks old I was longing for, nay, dying for, a schedule of some kind. A bright (early) Monday morning I woke with the determination to find something that resembled a routine.
Alex was napping someplace that was NOT in my arms or on my chest, so I went downstairs, took out smoothie ingredients from the fridge - yogurt, milk, strawberries - and from the cabinet - whey powder, flax seed, peanut butter, oatmeal.
I made a yummy, delicious smoothie, I poured coffee, I made waffles (in the toaster), I poured orange juice. Complete breakfast bliss.
I put everything away, went upstairs, Alex was awake, we talked about food and how it smelled, then we took a walk and watched some Sesame Street (with “Donald Grump” and “Omagrossa” and Elmo stole DG’s wig and DG said that was no problem, he had more, and whipped out a new one, so both DG and Elmo were wearing DG wigs.)
This lovely morning gave me hope that Alex and I could enjoy more mornings like this, but of course, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings quickly became clustersmacks of real life instead of a cereal commercial.
Thursday morning I woke and walked downstairs to make my smoothie. I took out smoothie ingredients from the fridge - milk, strawberries - and from the cabinet - whey powder, flax seed, yogurt, peanut butter, oatm…… whoa….. yogurt doesn’t belong in the cabinet.
