Why Can’t A Mom Have Fun?
That’s the probing question asked on the cover of the March 22nd edition of People Magazine. Seems that Kate Gosselin of “Jon Minus Kate Makes for More Money” fame is having a good time out and about and critics are questioning how a mom of 8 can balance an active social life and being a mommy.
What caught my eye about the article was the simple notion that a mom having fun should be questioned. Does a mom having fun suggest that she is shirking her responsibilities? Hey..wait…does that mean that being a mom isn’t fun? I have a blast being a mom.
If you Google “Mom’s Having Fun” (DO NOT DO THIS) you will come up with a whole lot of porn. Seems that the number one thing that moms do to have fun is touch themselves. No wonder the idea is being criticized…nobody wants to think of their mom doing THAT. Pages and pages of mom’s having FUN, sometimes with Dad, sometimes alone. Moms all over the world having fun the same way. How nice that we moms have a common bond.
