You’re a mom — you should be allowed to wear whatever you want

I strongly believe that when you become a mother, you should be able to wear whatever you want.

You should be able to shave your head. You should be able to look like you’ve just walked out of a loony bin — because really, you have.

For men, it’s so easy. They just put on shoes, pants, a button-up — they don’t even have hair.

But we’re expected to wear uncomfortable shoes. I went to daycare the other day to drop off my kids, and I saw a woman in stiletto heels, carrying two children. And I thought, “You know what? That is not OK! You don’t have to wear that!” But society tells us to wear them.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I like heels. I wear heels. They’re uncomfortable, but I feel good in them. But I wish I didn’t have to wear them.

If I could, I would shave my head, and wear pajamas 24/7 and the most simple nurse orthopedic shoes, and no makeup. Who doesn’t want to live like that?

So, new rule. Moms, you do whatever the hell you want. You know why? Because you’re a superhero, that’s why.
