Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

I was supposed to be this child's mother

(Before Tom went a little nutty. Like, in the Top Gun/A Few Good Men days. In the days when a little slow-motion sand volleyball scene was all a girl needed--I mean, who needed an actual MAN when you had a shirtless Tom Cruise on your parents' TV? But then I turned 16. And then, many years later, Tom started jumping on couches. But before all that happened, I was going to be this child's mother.)

OK, we're going to pretend like you're not going to see this everywhere you go for the next 10 days. Live and in the flesh, Miss Suri Cruise:



I had my various little conspiracy theories about the conception of this baby, all of which included sperm not belonging to Tom Cruise, but damn if she doesn't kinda look like him, huh? I seriously think she does. Which, quite frankly, is tripping me out a bit. I feel like everything I thought I once knew has shifted.

I need to go think about this for a minute.

It's a good thing that little girl is destined to be pretty, because I think her life might be a bit challenging from time to time!

Talk about a gene pool...

Tom was the hottest in Top Gun and Cocktail...but, man that guy has not aged nicely.

Someone who has aged well? Pierce Brosnan.

Good thing we finally get proof of a real living baby. I think the world was starting not to care. Delay=Publicity.

Suri and Shiloh will have something to talk about as they grow up..."My parents are more beautiful than YOUR parents"

OK Swishy...

I must be celebrity gossip impaired...what rock did I just climb out from under??? I have no clue what what all the hype is with Tom and Co. Why all the controversy over whose kid it is??Soooooooooo who better to ask than the celebrity gossip diva?? Fill a girl in please!!

Yep .. she looks like Tom. And Katie too .. what are we suposed to do with that?
My oldest child had hair like that, so I don't doubt the hair thing.
Trish Ryan is right - it's a good thing she'll have looks because she is going to have to overcome a lot of bullsh*t!

Oh, Boo! Where to begin! Well, it starts with the rumors that Tom is gay. Also, there are rumors that he's sterile (Nicole Kidman was pregnant when they got divorced, and some people thought they split up because Tom knew it couldn't be his). Add to that pictures of Katie during her pregnancy that showed her stomach sort of fluctuating in size ... and there you go. A skeptical public.

Celebrity gossip diva and media whore! LOL. Either one works :)

Soooo cute. Yeah, that could refer to any one of them. Great geans in that pool;)))

I used to love Tom Cruise, too, but he's gone a little nuts as he's gotten older. So glad I live in a normal family.....

Big snort on that one.

Celebrities. Always having the hairiest yet most photogenic babies.

Adorable...and so wise looking for someone so tiny. I'd love to have that hair and that complexion...

I too had a crush on Tom, but the 'older man pretending he's still a young man' look just isn't working for me.

Suri looks photshopped. That's all the smack I'm gonna say.
And yes, it was great when Tom shirtless playing beach volleyball on the tv was enough to get my heart pitter-pattering. I still don't get Kate(ie), though. She's just so... vacant? Is that the right word?
