saying cheers to the things we love
Do you know why no one asks men how they balance it all? It’s because there is no expectation of that. Bringing home money is enough. We don’t expect you to be anything more than a provider, men. But a working woman? Not only do you have to bring home the bacon and fry it up, you gotta be a size double-zero, too. You’ve got to volunteer at the school, you’ve got to be a sex kitten, a great friend, a community activist. There are all these expectations that we put on women that we don’t put on men.”Gabrielle Union, We’re Going to Need More Wine
The more you read, listen
We want to change the conversation about working women and moms, and shift from the characters that seem to permeate all articles about working moms. You’ve read these articles: they are funny, they are heartbreaking, they make you question. No matter the style, the tone is harmful to moms who feel the pressure to “do it all” and when all they read is stress, feeling like a failure, and chaos, it paints an unrealistic picture about what a working mom life is: normal. (Well, as normal as anyone’s life really can be.) The point is: everyone has stress, chaos, and failure. It’s life and that’s unavoidable. Having the “what if” doubts about work and motherhood is unnecessary.
It’s easy to get stuck in the quicksand of Instagram and Pinterest, and it’s hard not to get sucked in – and feel like we aren’t keeping up with everyone else.
That’s why we’re here to share: you can be a mom, and be a friend, and be a wife, and be an employee, be a daughter, and be a boss, and be awesome all at the same time.
Let’s stop overanalyzing. Let’s just go to work, kick a**, love our babies, and be grateful for the opportunities we have as working women.
