Give me a break!
How often are moms judged poorly for never losing their pregnancy weight? How much pressure is there these days to be a MILF?
I'm so done with it. Most of what makes me so content with my life right now is being free of anyone else's expectations.
I stopped wearing heels a few years ago. I'll still wear them when wearing a dress - which I avoid for the most part, but it happens. 98% of the time, I'm in my flats, and I'll let you in on a little secret: no one cares!
I'm over this low-waisted look. From muffin-top to...shall I say over-sharing, there's just way too much cause for undue stress when the pants are too low. And, as a friend says, no one over the age of 12 should wear skinny jeans (I'd say, 18, but okay). Yet, whenever I go shopping, I'm hard-pressed to find any pants that are otherwise.
To be clear, I don't wear clothes (or shoes) that make me feel frumpy. It has to be something I actually like. And most of the time, I even pass the Sylvia test!
Moms are under enough stress. We're figuring out how to be two places at once, we're trying to be attentive to our children while giving them enough space to avoid "helicopter" accusations, we're constantly re-working our budgets to make room for our kids' wants and needs along with the food and housing, while still trying to maintain strong relationships with our families and friends. Like Jessica, all I really want in a pair of pants are decent pockets.
