I’m all in favor of moms blogging, moms reading the blogs of other moms, and so forth. I blog about my kids frequently and enjoy the blogs of a number of other mothers. What made me gag was the nursery school design of Momaroo, with the cutesy animal icons and names. Not all moms have babies and toddlers, and even the ones that do may not wish to be infantilized. I don’t, thank you.
While we’re discussing moms, CNN reports that if a full-time mother got paid for her labor, she would earn an eye-popping $117,000/year. One of the great conundrums of life in the age of almost-but-not-quite equality for women in the US is the conflicting ambitions of women. Many, probably a majority of women wish to have children. Nearly all women who have children wish to do what is best for them. Many of those women also wish to achieve professional, personal, and financial success for themselves. Alas, what is best for one’s children is often diametrically opposed to what is best for oneself.
I would expound upon this further but my children need to be maneuvered through their bedtime routines. This has been Mama Transvestite Rabbit Roo reporting.
