To The Millennial Mama

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.

  1. Love love love this! Beautiful words and I actually just collaborated with A Spanglish Heart too! Love my hat!

  2. Loving this outfit top to bottom, gir! Love that pop of color too 🙂

    Keep doing you mama! You’re a rockstar 🙂

  3. I can definitely relate to this! My high school friends don’t have kids yet, but my college friends were older than me and we all settled down in different ways. Keep on keepin on, mama!

  4. I totally understand how you feel. I was a teen mom, and that changed everything for me. I was also the most quiet, least-likeliest of people to end up preggo. I wouldn’t have changed anything about my experience, though! I commend young mamas like yourself for expressing your individuality and being so passionate about raising your little ones while pursuing what you’re passionate about! You’re doing amazing, so to all those who question that, pay no mind, mama! You’re on to great things! xo
