Well, she's done it again. Jenny McCarthy has once more appeared on the cover of Playboy magazine. This time is a little bit different, though, because the actress and single mom is about to turn 40 and because, shockingly, she's declaring "Let's (hear) it for the MILFs" with this cover.

When I first saw her photo, I gasped. First of all, she looks great. Secondly, she's DEFINITELY got the body that I would want to have at about-to-turn-40 years old. Third, her declaration that she's a proud MILF (that's "Mom I'd Like to F***", if you didn't know) actually makes me more hopeful about having kids one day.

To be honest, one of my biggest fears about having kids is that I will turn into a "mom". You know, those moms you see on TV who dress kind of frumpy and barely ever get any alone time with their husbands. The fear of losing "myself" is always at the forefront of my mine. Yes, I know I'll be gaining a lot, too, but I am seriously terrified that I'll never be able to look decent or sexy again after I have kids.

Seeing Jenny on the cover of Playboy magazine, though, and it gives me hope. I know that a lot of parents may criticize her for being a mom and posing on the cover of a sexy magazine, but I think it's a lot more than that. She may be a mom, but she's a woman too, isn't she? And, as she puts it in a tweet, "why should only 20 yr olds be considered sexy?"

I think part of the reason that I'm not terribly shocked or disturbed about Jenny's cover is that my mom is a sexy mom. I don't know that I'd necessarily say she's in the MILF category (though I think my dad would appreciate knowing his wife was hot and he was the envy of other men, hah) but she does like to dress well and show off those curves. So while I don't think I'd go to Jenny's lengths to show off my body at that age (at least I don't think I will), I do applaud her for reminding us that 40 years old and a mom doesn't mean that you can't look damn good.
