It’s that time of year again! Once again, the mommies of the world come out to tell the world that they way they are living may not be perfect, but it’s best for them, setting off a firestorm of women going “NOT ME! YOU DON’T SPEAK FOR ME!” The latest offering is in NY Mag, and it’s about the new feminist housewife. Please don’t take what I’ve written as me dissing it- I think it makes great points and is lovely, I just don’t think that any mom can speak for all moms, and I know that’s how this is going to be taken. My favorite excerpt:
