I don’t know if I am alone in this… Getting ready in the morning I sometimes hear the song “Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)” by Garth Brooks
Okay you might not hear that song in your head but maybe you know this feeling. Whether you are 23 or 43 if you are a mom do you ever get the feeling “I’m too old to wear this”? I have this comfy AF sweatshirt that I made into a crop top and it has the Lion King on it. Even though I love it every time I put it on I feel like I am too old for it.
It’s like the moment I became someones mom I wasn’t my age anymore, I was just old. A blanket statement. You have a kid now you are no longer allowed to look hip or God forbid cool.
I’m not sure why I feel this way… I’m only 29. But even when I’m 39 I want to feel confident. So, why wouldn’t I wear things that make me feel that way? I don’t know. I wish I knew where that feel came from.
I assume it comes from the fog of being a mom. The feeling that your identity stops with being a mom and nothing more. Wearing a crop sweatshirt doesn’t serve a purpose if you are just a mom.
But-if you think of yourself as an individual, someone who is their own person if seems more natural to wear what you want. Man, that was rambley (not a word, but you know what I mean) but my point is WE AS MOMS SHOULDN’T LIMIT OURSELVES BECAUSE WE ARE MOMS! If anything we should work harder to be ourselves so your kids can know us better.
okayyyy then. If you read all that then you are a true friend haha
Wear the crop top. Dye your hair fun colors. Rock the fun sunglasses. Do you momma! Show your babies who you are.
