The Truth About Motherhood



Anyone see Oprah yesterday? The show's topic was about motherhood and what we really go through -- the joy, the isolation, the guilt, the exhaustion. And how for the most part, we don't support each other as much as we should.

Obviously, I could relate but more than that, it made me really think about my mom friendships and how lucky I feel to have found women who aren't afraid to say they really DON'T want to play Barbies with their kid, would sometimes rather just lie in bed watching the Real Housewives of New York , and feel there is nothing wrong with wanting wine (or three) at the end of the day. And for being vocal and open about it. Thank you to my mom friends for being so honest. Without you, I'd have to pretend I LIKE to play Barbies and I wouldn't have anyone to drink those good Bloody Mary's with at that place down at the Grove.

You all mean so much to me! Now, get off the f#@king internet and go be a Mom, you lazy be-yatches! :)

That show was great. I could relate to so many of the stories. Like thes now baths for 3 weeks(we jaccuzzi nightly.) or the ignoring the kids crying. Or not showering for like ever(3 days)!
