I really hate how, as moms, we try to label each other by stereotypes. You know, the crafty mom, the over protective mom, the party mom, etc.
I really wish there was a way to be accepted for who I am and who I am as a mom. I don’t feel like I fit into any particular mold, and my guess is, most moms don’t. But moms try to choose a group to which they closest fit and then try to squeeze themselves into the pre-labled package.
I’ve tried to fit into a mold myself, but it just doesn’t work. I like to be crafty and cook, I really really do…but it’s not all I live for. I also like to drink, but I’m not really a party mom, I’m more of a wallflower. I like to be funny and talk about silly subjects but I’m not much of a comedienne. I’m really only funny to myself. I also like sex and I think it’s funny to talk about, but of course a lot of moms frown on it. They will talk about it in private at ladies night but not in mixed company or around people they don’t know, which I think is really dumb. It’s not like those people don’t do it too. So as you can tell, I’m a bit of Martha Stewart mixed with May West and a splash of Felicia Day (who you don’t even know.)
Anyway, I’m curious if other moms have the same problem.
