There’s been so much outrage since the Duchess, Kate recently stepped on those hospital steps (for the 3rd time) looking fabulous, with her hair blown out and that gorgeous red dress, literally just hours after she’d given birth.
People claimed that by her doing so, unnecessary pressure has been put on normal woman.
Normal woman? What does that mean anyway?
So let’s break it down. What did people expect?Should she have limped out of the ward in a track pants and an old baggy t-shirt?
In all honesty – if I were to be photographed knowing that it would be published on literally every publication on earth – there’s no doubt that I would put on some makeup and wear something presentable!
She is the Duchess after all, so of course, she would look amazing!
I’m sure that the minute she got home, she kicked off those heels, hung up her beautiful red dress and changed into the most comfy PJ’s in England, just like any Mom would do!
People will always have an opinion though… whether it’s about the Princess or not…
For instance, I’ve been told by random people whom I just met, that I look way too “put together” to be a Mother of 2.
And I literally cringed when I heard that. How exactly is a Mom of 2 supposed to look?
Is there a specific (dropped) standard you need to abide by when you become a Mom?
Are Moms not allowed to wear pretty outfits or wear some lipstick?
Since becoming a Mom, there have been days where I’ve literally had close to zero hours of sleep at night – but had to be wide awake the next morning, put on my big girl panties, get the kids ready for the day, shoot to the office and work just as hard as everyone else.
I didn’t complain, in fact, I would dress my best that day, put on a bright shade of lipstick and pucker on! Because who is going to listen to me complaining anyway?
So I may look “put together” on the outside, it doesn’t mean that I have all my ducks in a row.
But I guess some people only see what’s on the outside…and while I may look “put together” on most days, I’m probably just as exhausted as anyone else.
It’s perceptions, I guess.
As Audrey Hepburn said, “On a Bad day, there’s always lipstick“ and it may just be that or a favourite dress or a new coat – it really does just lift my mood!
