When I wear something fashionable: “You don’t look like a mom” is something I often get, and confused whether to take as a compliment or otherwise.
I think our culture has some pretty backward ideas about the image of a ‘Mom’. Who decides the standards for how a ‘Mom’ looks?
Why are mothers expected to deny their style, glamour or personality in motherhood. This photo was taken 8 months post partum. “What’s a mom supposed to look like?
As mothers, we’re suddenly expected to become these maternal martyrs, selflessly breastfeeding our precious babies but always covering up, wear super loose, mismatched and unstylish stuff and then maybe we’re seen as a mom.
Each mom is different and special, and cannot be labelled or seen as a generic stereotype. She does her best, is a multitasker and still beautiful in her own true sense of being a mother at first. 💕❤️
