Let’s talk about celebrities and motherhood! I read a headline on a story from earlier this year about Katie Holmes and motherhood. Here’s the headline, “Katie Holmes Has No Trouble Balancing Motherhood And A Career”
It sounds almost crazy. I don’t care who you are — if you are a mother, it’s hard to do everything that you want to do. It’s great that Katie seems to have figured this out, but I don’t think that it’s true for most people.
Later in the article she is asked point blank about balancing her career with motherhood.
IS IT HARD TO BALANCE MOTHERHOOD WITH A CAREER?
No, not at all. Itâ€™s fun. I find it exciting.”
I wonder if she would be able to say the same thing if she weren’t famous or rich. I just feel like this comment is a slap in the face to the millions of mothers out there who work a traditional full-time job, for traditional wages and do find it hard to balance everything.
