The Rolling Stones may have said it best when they sang, "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need." Many young ladies dream of a life full of children, a dreamy hubby and all of the fabulous side dishes that come along with motherhood. But ask most any mum and chances are, they will admit their reality is far different from the imaginary one they created before entering mommyhood, and hopefully, for the better. In the "The God-Why-Don't-You-Love-Me Blues" episode of Desperate Housewives, Gaby reveals to Carlos that though her life is completely different from what she once expected, she is honest to God happy. It turns out that fretting about detergent, lost keys, groceries and spot removal can make a woman pretty satisfied when it's all done in the name of love.
So tell mommy, are you leading the life you once imagined? And like Gaby, are you honest to God happy with your life?
