Social life!

Last night...I went out! I saw my friends! I drank some drinks! I talked about random stuff and not about babies! I had fun! I did not want to leave!

Competitive mothers

There's an assumption, particularly among people who don't have babies, books and the media, that mums are highly competitive about their baby being the best, always showing off and comparing each others babies. The overwhelming experience I've had is of myself and other mums I meet competing over who's baby is worse, who's parenting is missing the mark, who's the best at not sleeping through the night. Queen of Self Deprecation seems to be the title we are all vying for. Women, why do we do this to ourselves? Just a thought I'm dwelling on.
