Things have taken a bad turn

And I'm afraid it's all my fault.

Perhaps if I had set a better example for my daughter?
Perhaps if I wasn't so shallow she'd have stood a chance?
Perhaps if I had taken to heart that you can't judge a book by it's cover?

Because of my bad habits.
Because of my affinity to the books cover instead of it's contents.
Because of my magpie attraction to all things pink and shiny in the literature world.

On account of the fact that I cannot stop reading books such as these:

my darling daughter is now emphatically attracted to books such as this:

... and this:

My fear is what will come home from the library once she sees me reading this:

Karma? I'm still your bitch.

I LOVE Jen Lancaster books! Are you going to the signing when Such A Pretty Fat comes out?

Dodi said...

I would love to, actually. She totally cracks me up!! Whenever I need to laugh I just pick up one of her books from my nightstand!

When is Such a Pretty Fat coming out?

Hey Dodi, check out my blog. Jen Lancaster's blog is linked there. I'm sure it will say when her book is coming out. (I can't remember darn it)
And I'm scared about what MY kids will read. You've seen my lists.
Oh man. Karma is going to be bad on that one.
