Supermom??

I think as women there's a lot of pressure to be/have it all. And as I've heard before and agree with: I think it's hard to have it all -especially all at the same time!

I mean if you think about it theoretically as women we are to: Go to college,Have a career.Get married,and of course Have kids-All this in a few short "prime years"-From about 20-30;35 years old. I think we all deal with this in our own way. I know there's no "right" way to do it. It's just all such a catch 22! Some may have a family early and struggle with money and getting a career later. Some may have a career and may be more financially ready but, then struggle with fertility because of age-etc. As the recent news hit about how "the oldest mom" had died at age 69 leaving her twin toddlers behind-I find it hard to say that women can/should have babies at any age.

So what do you think about being a Married, Degree carrying,Career,Superstar domestic diva-SUPERMOM?? How do you deal??

Oh! also if you're feeling the pressure of wanting to be Supermom and feel like you need some Mama Merit Badges or a T-shirt to show everyone you're "Living the Dream" of Motherhood-With all those fun chores ;) Be sure to check out my article showing some cool products @ Things Mommies Love!

I know what you mean. I am on the end of preferring to go poor while having children young and am struggling to advance my writing career while being a SAHM. But the point is to be happy about what you choose to do.
