    I like the Old Navy maxi you posted. I wore this one over the weekend to a casual co-Ed baby shower at a brewery and got a lot of compliments. Breezy and comfy! https://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=809123052&cid=15292&pcid=15292&vid=1&cpos=53&kcid=CategoryIDs%3D15292&ctype=Listing&cpid=res637884113070861848#pdp-page-content

    I appreciate motherhood is a completely different journey for every person. I read a lot of these kinds of articles about “what I wish I knew, or “what no one tells you…” and it turned me off from having kids until later in life. Since none of my closest girlfriends have kids either, all I heard was how difficult it would be. I now have a 1.5 year old… and it’s been so much more fun than I ever imagined, and that’s what I wish I knew. I have never laughed so much, smiled so much, and have had so much tenderness before in my day to day life. Sure, juggling work and home and now a kid is more time consuming and exhausting than I thought it would be, but on the whole, I feel a lot happier, (even with ten extra pounds, which, pre-baby would have completely tanked my happiness) which I was NOT expecting from these kinds of articles.

    • Denise says:

      Motherhood, I find, is truly about tempering expectations.

      I read all of the articles and I did find mothering hard… but then I made a serious change in my life and ended a very unhappy marriage to my children’s father. And that is when I was finally able to sit with myself and really, truly enjoy my children.

      Sometimes we have to let go of what we clung to so tightly before having kids (for me – my marriage, perhaps for you it was the 10 pounds) to be able to embrace motherhood.

    The calculator for arriving at the party gave me a laugh. Silly but thoughtful

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
