The outsiders

I have realized something being a mom.  You move into a different group, a new "club".  Now that I'm a mom, people assume I don't want to do certain things, or that I no longer wish to have a social life.  I have somehow instantly become unhip, uncool, old and boring. I am no longer asked to have drinks after work, and it's assumed that I am always "busy" becuase I am a mom. It is assumed that I no longer care about fashion or makeup or hair, and that I no longer have any idea about what's going on in the world becuase "I am so busy being a mom".

Somedays I wish I was back in the old "club"; that I was still thought of as fun, hip, fashionable, crazy Amy. 

But not today. 

Today I am so perfectly happy being that unhip, spit-up wearing, song singing, mom to my most favorite little guy ever.

I agree with you. The "Mom" club is sometimes misunderstood, it's like we signed away ourselves when we gave birth....wait, I guess we did. Although sometimes it would be nice to be invited to do the fun stuff. Then we can decline and go cuddle with our lil ones.
Great post!

the only thing that bugs me about it is that I get the impression that people "pity" me and my new life...but you know what, I'm perfectly happy! social circles are ever changing!
