Lots of women got bent out of shape when they saw the recent photos of supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s breathtakingly perfect post-partum body. Yes, just nine months after popping out baby Benjamin, the Brazilian beauty is once again in impossibly-toned catwalk shape. Gisele’s smack-talkers insist that if they had the same mega-salary and the ability to hire a round-the-clock team of chefs and personal trainers, they, too would be rocking those yummy-mummy six pack abs.
Screw that. Me, I’d rather go on believing what I’ve always believed: That supermodels are freaks of nature (in a good way, of course), and that just as I never stood a chance of comparing to one before I had kids, I’ll never stand the chance afterward, either. You could plant a money tree in my front yard, glue the soles of my feet to a moving treadmill belt and force-feed me a raw food diet for three years and I still wouldn’t look like that. In fact, Giselle’s freakishness is the very reason that she makes eleventy trillion dollars a year and I make, well, slightly less than that.
Call me crazy, but I find this comforting.
