So I think it is safe to say that most of you reading my fantabulous blog know that marriage is not the death of fun, riiiiiight?
I mean, I know plenty of people who are married (myself included) who haven't magically morphed into June and whatshisname Cleaver (Egad! He was apparently so boring I can't even remember his name).
So if that stereotype is a load of crap, why then do some people still buy into its sister prejudice about moms?
Why do some women feel the pressure to become a Stepford Mom?
And more importantly, why are some women actually smug because they have voluntarily undergone a fun-ectomy?
Thankfully I only know one Stepford Mother (and no, she isn't one of you!).
I can say with 100% certainty that Bug doesn't herald the demise of my love affair with sexy cha-cha shoes, she won't kill my appetite for girlie martinis or fruity blender drinks, and she certainly won't be the one and only topic of my future conversations.
I'll be a mom, yes, and things will be different for me in so many ways but that doesn't mean I'll become a different person. I promise all of you that I'll continue to be an overly-opinionated, PS3 playing, mani/pedi loving, Martini drinking shoe-a-holic with a vampire fetish although now I'll be one that operates on far less sleep and who may occasionally accessorize her party clothes with dried baby barf.
Now that's fun with a capital "F"!
