I, for one, would like expando pants. I was happy and content until you mentioned them and I realized I don't have any.

This. Is. Perfect.

Dosen't matter if you're a woman. "All" is just another way to spell difficult. I've had it "ALL" before, and I didn't like it. Good post!

Absolutely LOVE this post! ;-)

Exactly! I read the same articles you did (I think) and was frustrated by them. I am so sick of the "mom wars"... You said it all perfectly!

This really is perfect. Wish all young women could read it!

Very well put. I think some people confuse "having it all" with not having to make decisions.

Reminds me of that movement by women about 15 years ago that they had to 'find themselves'. Always drove me crazy. They would follow what the magazines said versus listening to their own internal ticker. My mom said it best to me... if you are content over 75% of the time, you are in a good place. Otherwise, look around and see what is making you unhappy and change that thing. You said it better..

Excellent words! I made my daughter who is about to leave for college read this. I'll probably leave it on her roommates' beds when we take her up there in the fall...
