My worldview changed a bit when I told my 71 year old mother I just started stitch fix and she responds, “isn’t it great, I’ve been using it for a year now.” Huh, my mom is an earlier adopter than me

I thought you were the founder of stitch fix.

Nope, not rich and also not a woman.

Mom is sick in India, unfortunately we are counting days.

Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.

Thoughts?
