Motherhood:Making Me Do Stupid Things on a Daily Basis

Parenthood is one of those ‘you can’t imagine it till you do it’ kind of deals. It can make you do funny things, things the pre-motherhood-you could have sworn you would never do.

All those things you made fun of/self-righteously objected to when other parents did it before you had your own little bundle of joy? Yup, you’ll be doing all of them and more before your baby is old enough to wear big girl pants.

Now it’s Personal

Being a girl in today’s world is a confusing thing: be girly, don’t be ‘too’ girly, don’t become fat but don’t let those photoshopped size zero models on tv body shame you! Have a career, no have babies and stay home with them. Wear makeup, but don’t wear too much makeup. Find a man, you don’t need a man! Stay at home, go to work, do both but be perfect at each.
