Is It Just Me, or Are Moms Getting Hotter?

Guest blogger Georgie Hockett: For too long, bad connotations have been associated with moms: Jessica Simpson was just panned for wearing mom jeans. No one wants to look like somebody's 'mother'.

The mom-shell, the domesticated version of the bombshell, is here -- in a big way. Personally, I think it's a good thing. I remember the days of not getting dressed until 4:00 PM, showers every fourth day, who wants that?? Your husband doesn't (that's for sure) and I always felt coated because I didn't have the time to brush my teeth for the first time until 6 o'clock at night. Naps were too important.

But kids get older, you get a routine and it becomes easier to shower, shave and shine. My friend Lisa told me that she feels better when she has lipstick on. And if that's what it takes to have the self-confidence and the strength to face another day as super mom, teacher, chef, working woman and sex kitten, then slather it on, sister.

So true, so true! The days of ‘why bother changing out of my PJ’s it’ll just mean more laundry to wash’ are long gone for me. ok well just a few months long gone and my kids are in their teens… but that story is for another day… The point is whatever it takes to keep us moms going is a good thing! If lipstick and going to the gym (that was the start for me) works for you then go for it. I’m also now taking classes a the state university. At nearly 40 I’m closer in age to my professors then I am to my classmates but it gets me out of the house and makes me feel good. So far I’m doing better than I thought I would hey I may even finish and get my degree this time. :O)
