Do Young Moms Have More Energy?
Toddlers are hard, parenting is hard, the entire thing is a test of wills, or a war of attrition. We’re not entirely sure, but one thing i have realized, no one really tells you how difficult it really is. All we can do is wait for the next parent to come along and commiserate!
Surviving those first toddler melt downs and side eyes from strangers. It’s no wonder people joke about wine breakfast!
I’m a decently new, fairly young mama, still in my twenties. Which puts me already as a target of scrutiny when leaving the house. NYC are home to what I call “financially stable mothers” which has nothing to do with finance. More that they waited to have children until they were in their thirties.
There’s nothing wrong with that, people can decide when or if to have children or adopt. Yet, I think a mom in their 20’s is seen as a little more reckless. Or possibly reckless with the usage of condoms. ha ha. My husband is just about to hit thirty and sometimes, it feels like people think we’re from an episode of ‘teen mom’. Youth doesn’t mean we don’t feel the exhaustion of parenthood. It just means we’re going to have an even bigger freak out, at those wrinkles!
