As the mother of daughters, I cringe when I see quotes like this:
"I'm doing it very backwards, I know! I'll just keep my legs crossed this time."
– Jessica Simpson, who is pregnant with her second child, but still wants to have a big wedding so is pushing back the date of her wedding...again.
"Technically I'm still married, so that joke doesn't really work … Give it up, people."
– Kim Kardashian, who is pregnant with her boyfriend's baby, talking about the jokes people make about her marriage. Yes, she is married to someone and pregnant by someone else!
If my daughters went on TV and said these things, I would die of shame.
This may seem a little hypocritical since I keep a blog and say personal things on it. (Is the only difference being that I am not famous so lot of people don't read it and care?)
Am I like them in sharing so many of my unfiltered thoughts? Or is it different? These women (I almost put girls but they both have to be about 30 years old!) are just sharing personal information about their sex lives.
Do they not even care that their words may be an embarrassment to their own children?
Or is this just an inherited behavior?
Neither of these women have a mom who seems care that they say these things.
This may be the saddest thought of all:
They are likely raising another generation just like themselves.
I need to remind myself that the words I let out of my mouth and share on this blog have the ability to effect my children's lives.
