Friday Frivolity: Susan Orlean on Mom Jeans

We've discussed it here, and here, but there can be a certain ambivalence many of us feel about motherhood. It has nothing to do with how we feel about our children, parenting, or being mothers. It has everything to do with the terminology we all use for those of us who are, technically and usually enthusiastically, the female parents of offspring.

Happily, we are not alone. On her blog at The New Yorker, Susan Orlean has written this funny post on the use of "mom", "mommy" and "mom jeans." Enjoy!

* hat tip to Kate at Book Nook for asking us about this before we'd even finished reading it.
