In my daily struggle to keep on top of the latest entertainment news, I was tuned into E News – with your hosts Guilliana Rancic and Terrence J. Anyway, there was an entire segment on celebrity mums (moms) who still have ‘it’. On this list was Kim Kardashian, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Simpson and a few other colourful characters. All of whom look amazing after having children. A Million questions flooded my head….do I still have ‘it’? What is ‘it’? How on earth do I get ‘it’, if I’m not even sure what ‘it’ is? Maybe I never had ‘it’? Is ‘it’ simply looking good after having children? If this is the is the case, who is the judge? Do the women on this list even know that they have ‘it’?
Oh no!! Pehaps I am too late, I already over use the words sassy, trendy and jazzy. Do I even know what fashion is these days? People I work with talk about hipsters. I think some of them may even be hipsters- they go against fashion, live by their own set of rules, they’re not ‘mainstream’. Perhaps I’m one of them?…nope I don’t have any dark rimmed glasses, sleeve tattoos or grey hair. On that topic. What happened to goths? Are they still around or are hipsters goths in disguise. I’m so confused. Is it time to throw in the towel, pop on some mum jeans with New Balance (Jerry Seinfeld style), put a scrunchie in my hair and switch the car stereo to talkback radio.
I am up to date with all the latest TV and celebrity goss (mainly because I’m trapped in a house with a toddler and a baby). However, I am such a mum that I can almost speak fluent Spanish because of Dora. At a moments notice I could break into a medly of Frozen songs and sing them at the top of my lungs like a teenager at a One Direction concert. My once clean car resembles a Lollypops play centre and even though I hate to admit it, high heels are starting to become inconvenient as I can’t run around with my son easily.
My final question to myself was do I even want ‘it’? Ummm well yes, yes I do. Who wouldn’t? I want my husband to think I am the best wife and I want my children to think they have the trendiest (haha I said trendy), funkiest and most loving mum in the world. For now I think, I do have ‘it’. My babies are too small to know what ‘it’ is and my husband is probably in the same boat as me or just doesn’t care.
Let me know if you have ‘it’ ladies…or if you can provide me with a clear explanation. Clearly I have no idea!
