To the millennial mama,
Aka modern madre. We seem to get the short end of the stick in society don’t we? We have a hard time relating to our “retweet if you’re a 90’s baby without a baby” old classmates but we don’t quite vibe with most of the thirty something mamas. The older generations always have something to say to complain about us anywhere from “babies having babies” to “get married and have more babies”. Our peers try, some of them do, to keep us in the game but it’s hard to keep up with an old party pal who needs to tuck their little ones in at 9.
It’s funny though, because we may not know who really has the short end of the stick but it sure as hell ain’t us. We get to hug our babies years longer, we get to grow with them, and we get to be the “cool moms”. While our partners in crime are causing mischief we will be too because hey, we’re still young and we’ll get to laugh about it together.
I don’t relate to every single millennial mama out there because quite frankly we all have a different story. I was a quiet gal who happened to end up pregnant, who happened to be the only pregnant one in the school that year which must be a record because there’s always at least a couple there. I was a loner who always wanted to stay that way, never wanted kids, but I surely wouldn’t have made it that way. I was hard wired to be a mother from the start.
I am nothing like some of you and nearly identical to others but if there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that planned or not, us millennial mamas kick ass. And we deserve more credit for it.
