Not Just About the Kids

I love my kids to bits, but let’s get real: I’m not about to talk your ear off about them. Ever wonder why some moms can’t seem to chat about anything else?

Picture this: I’m at a fancy networking lunch, surrounded by powerhouse women. You’ve got your high-flying lawyer, a banking boss with an intimidating haircut, a big-shot in recruitment, and a tech wizard. Talk about a dream team for some juicy, brainy conversations, right?

Wrong! As we’re sipping fancy wine and snacking on fancy snacks, guess what? The only topic on the table was… their kids. Seriously, with all the cool stuff happening in the world, that’s all we’re gonna talk about?

Kid Talk, Non-Stop

There I was, hoping to dive into discussions about politics, work, or the latest book I read. Instead, I got a play-by-play on Timmy’s soccer game and Jenny’s drama with her science project. It felt like I was stuck in an endless loop of parental updates, with no escape in sight.

It’s not just this lunch, either. It happens all the time — dinner parties, work events, you name it. Moms everywhere seem to be stuck in kid-conversation mode. Do we not have anything else to talk about? What about the latest movies, the crazy cost of living, or the upcoming elections?

But Wait, There’s More to Life!

Don’t get me wrong — I adore my four kids. They’re my world. But I know not everyone’s as interested in their day-to-day as I am. And that’s okay! Why do we, as awesome, accomplished women, limit ourselves to just mom-talk?

We’ve smashed through glass ceilings and fought for our rights. So why reduce our conversations to playground updates? Trust me, guys aren’t over there talking about diaper brands over golf.

Let’s Change the Conversation

Once, I tried to switch things up at a lunch by banning kid talk. “It’s boring!” I said, maybe a bit too loudly. It worked… until dessert, when the kid chat creeped back in.

Another time, desperate for a topic change, I blurted out something about birth control — anything to steer away from the endless kid-focused chatter.

So here’s the deal: If you’re one of those moms who thinks the world revolves around your kids, think again. Let’s make our conversations as interesting and diverse as our lives. After all, we’re not just moms — we’re so much more. Let’s show it in what we talk about, too!
