I received this mini-poster via Facebook from a friend and I love it. Why? Because it laughs in the face of expectation. At 33, Iâ€™m â€œsupposedâ€ to be married with at least one kid. That was pretty much true for all the women of my motherâ€™s generation. And according to dear olâ€™ mama, she definitely should have some grandbabies to dote on and spoil.
Sorry mom, I guess all that schooling and the deep desire to follow my dreams of becoming a writer, live in New York and travel the world got in the way of â€œsettling down.â€ Not to mention the fact that I have yet to master the art of a successful romantic partnership. But still, was Kanye right when he said, â€œOn that independent shit, trade it all for a husband and some kids?â€
