Mommy lesson #7

Don't compare yourself to other mommies. Especially the ones you meet in the nursing room at Nordstroms. Especially not the one who has her FIVE WEEK OLD in tow, is wearing a (gasp!) dress, has her hair done AND makeup on, and is at least two sizes smaller than you.

But you can compare your babies. And your baby is WAAAAAY cuter.

Suck it Nordstrom mommy.

In defense of the mother, I remember when Conor was about 5-6 weeks old, I took him out a few times, fully dressed with hair done and makeup on. It was SO HARD to get out of the house like that, but I had to do it for my sanity. I have no defense for the whole skinny part- can't relate to that!

That's why I would go to playgroup. It made me feel like a normal mother.
