Moms don’t give a crap about these things anymore

Moms don’t give a crap about these things anymore

Before you became a mom, you were elegant, polite, and always on time. You made time for everyone and drinking alone was something that only alcoholics did. But things have changed a lot since you entered the realm of motherhood. Here’s what moms don’t give a crap about…


Moms don’t give a crap about…

Being late

You’ve tried being on time for a few brunches, screaming baby in tow, and you’ve ditched the idea altogether. Today, you’re happy to ditch restaurants with strict arrival times for joints where you can grab your own drink and sit wherever you want. You work on your kid’s timetable these days, and their sense of timing sucks.


Hanging out with fake friends

You barely have time to go to the gym or get your nails done. No way in hell are you going to waste that precious time on friends that you don’t like. Besides, you’ve got better things to do. Like taking the perfect picture of your bento box creation for your Instagram account.


Wearing makeup

Sure you still rock it while out on a date night, but looking that good takes time. Again, you don’t have time to waste. Especially if it means you get to sleep for five more minutes. Moms don’t give a crap about putting in an effort to look good at the pharmacy checkout.


Saying no

Can you stay late for work? No. Do you want to drive an hour out of your way for drinks? Nope. Does she want to help you move? Definitely NOT. The only thing moms find it hard to say no to are their kids.


A messy house

Moms don’t give a crap about messy houses because, again, they don’t have time to sweat the small stuff. She does just enough to keep up appearances, as long as you don’t open her closets.


Office drama. Any kind of unnecessary drama really

As a mom, you’re not in the office (or PTA) to make friends. You want to get in, get out, and go home. While your co-workers gossip about the boss’ new girlfriend, you’re just concerned about getting home before your kid’s bedtime arrives.


Trying to be perfect

You might have pinned pictures of perfect nurseries and families while you were pregnant, but those were skewed ideals. And you know that now. It took you roughly 5 minutes of being a mom to realise those pins were just pins. The reality is that you’re lucky if you have enough time to order pizza and peel the oranges before bedtime.
