Sometimes being a woman sucks. PMS, bras and tampons? And for those of us who have had babies, what about those Mama's Bits? But when you think about it, there are some pretty fabulous things about being a woman that I wouldn't change for the world.
I can multitask. I don't even care if this makes me sound sexist. Women can multitask, and men cannot. 'Nough said.
I get to indulge in Girl Talk. I'm sure men can get together and have some great conversations, but there is nothing like a night of chatter with a group of close girlfriends. There is a bond there that men will never understand.
I can find stuff. Again, maybe a sexist comment, but in my house, being female means being able to find misplaced items without effort. Even my 4-year-old can do this better than her daddy. "Where are my keys" he asks? "Check the right pocket of your light blue jeans that are in a pile beside the laundry basket in our room" I say (without looking up from what I'm doing, because, as per #1, this mama can multitask).
I think with my heart, not with my head. I'm not saying all women do this, and I'm not saying that men aren't capable of this either, but I do know that us women have strong gut feelings, and that we follow those feelings above all else. I think it's part of why we are made to be such great mothers.
I made these two. I gave them the gift of life - and that my friends, is an awesome miracle. Yes, daddy helped a little bit, but let's face it - I grew life within me, and I brought human beings into this world through my own personal strength. So for this, I'm taking all the credit thankyouverymuch.
I am a woman bee-ing, and I love all that it entails. Cramps, mood swings, and cellulite - I'll take it all for the joys that come with being a female.
