I PALE in comparison!

John McCain picked his running mate for the campaign, Sarah Palin. All politics aside, I sat in disbelief as this woman--a mother of 5!--made her acceptance speech. The thing that gets me is not just that she has 5 kids, but that the youngest is only 4 months old! I will make no bones about the fact that the transition from 1 to 2 kids rocked me; it was much harder than I had anticipated! I honestly stayed hibernated in our house for a good majority of the first 8 months just getting used to all of that multi-tasking! I still have a hard time putting together a cohesive conversation when I run into people at the grocery store, and this woman is taking on the campaign to be Vice President...OF THE COUNTRY!! I can't help but wonder if I am just a wimp for being exhausted by the end of the day, or if she is just an unreal superhuman. It definitely makes me think that getting myself to MOPS this fall should be more of an attainable goal!

I am laughing out loud (mops) and in total agreement. I lean toward the "unreal superhuman" assessment. Wimpy moms of two, unite!

Wow. I am there with you. She has really impressed me, and as I listened to her give a speech the other night at the RNC, I thought many of the thoughts you expressed. I only hope mothers nation-wide will look at her and realize, she seems to want to be very transparent and real about her life, AND she is passionate about our nation. I love it!!
