That’s It. I’m moving to Europe.

April 3, 2009

This spread in the French Vogue totally made my week.  The irreverent (and yet tender) look at motherhood cracks me up.  A pregnant mother blowing smoke into her baby’s face, testing bottled milk in such a way that it appears to be a heroin needle, and tossing the baby into the air. Hilarious.  It is such a relief to be reminded of the fact that parenthood doesn’t have to all be so serious and consequential. 

Not only would these pictures never make it into a magazine in the US what with the drug references and seemingly abusive behavior towards the baby, but the shoes, short skirts, and risque tops would likely cause a scandal. 

Thank you, French Vogue (wow, never thought those words would come from me) for reminding me to not take myself so seriously.
