“Ratcheted-up Expectations of Modern Motherhood”

I’m very happy that my “fragile personal victories” will not “be upended by the ratcheted-up expectations of modern motherhood” because I have no idea what these expectations are. Thankfully, the hospital where I gave birth to Klara forgot to provide me with the list, and I can continue existing in happy cluelessness. On the negative side, I have lost yet another opportunity to feel deliciously sorry for myself as I fail to meet any of these imaginary expectations.

God, why don’t people go do something instead of coming up with this sorry crap.

  1. This kind of crap made me miserable as a young mother. Fortunately, I’ve learned to stop reading these sorts of things. I’m doing the best I can as a mother, and my kids know that I love them. I’m not going to worry about other people’s anxiety.


    1. Anxiety is a product…. like everything else. I dont’ get the allure, but a lot of people are desperate for some and so articles like this provide them with the talking points to proclaim their victimhoom….
