Me & Angie - best buds

This quote came to me through my Google Alert for "wahm." I just had to share it...make sure you don't have a mouthful of, well, anything. Ready?

"Angelina Jolie really has a lot in common with the average WAHM, which means Work at Home Mom. They both have to figure out how to manage their time, household, and families while looking pretty."

You have GOT to be kidding me. A multi million dollar actress has something in common with me? There ain't no way our lives are even remotely similar. Sorry, I don't buy that. There is no way she works as hard as I do and makes as little money.

And since when does she work at home? I don't think a movie set in some far-off place constitutes home.

And the last part of this quote, "while looking pretty." Uh...apparently the author here has not worked at home long. Or has a whole different idea of it. While I get up and shower every morning, brush my teeth and fix my hair, I sure don't go out of my way to look pretty while working at home. Really, for who? The dogs?

Anyway, this just amused the heck out of me, so I posted it. What do the rest of you wahm's think about it?

Here's the whole Google Alert......I'll give credit where credit is due.

Angelina Jolie is the Perfect WAHM, now what does that mean?
Angelina Jolie really has a lot in common with the average WAHM,
which means Work at Home Mom. They both have to figure out
how to manage their time, household, and families while looking pretty.
Debbie Cluff went from a simple SAHM (stay at home mom) to a
WAHM and has ideas on how to market the at home phenonmenon.

Well, doesn't this just take the cake...wonder if she bakes too? I'm guessing "NO"! I'm sure she does some things, but not in any way, shape or form the same way I do. I think some folks distort the WAHM discription. Not to negate what ANY mom that works at home does, but there are degrees to it.

BTW - I look "pretty" ALL the time, just ask my puppy:)

Angelina Jolie has nothing in common with me. Or should I say I have nothing in common with her. I don't have millions and millions of dollars and get to travel the world. I can barely put gas in my car. Now, if she really were a work at home mom then the amount of money really wouldn't matter but I agree with Peggy. Does she have homemade cookies (that she made) waiting for her kids when they get home from school. Does she run each child half way across town to different sports fields?? Dividing her time between her family and work. I don't think so. :) I gotta check out this Debbie Cluff and see what she is all about. :)
Kandas, be safe.

Baking? Homemade cookies. BAH! Who has time for that? I barely have time to vacuum or make dinner.

Guess what I am going to do today? CLEAN MY GUTTERS! I figure it's a good idea before Ike gets here. The current projections are showing he's actually going to pass over our community. I doubt it, but better safe than sorry.

that just made me gag, I don't think many wahm's have their people to take care of everything for them.

and Kandas, I'm wishing Ike away for you. I hope you stay safe.
