Miranda GRRRR.

Maybe I'm just a jaded (and tired) new mom, but have you seen Miranda Kerr's statement about giving birth to her son with Orlando Bloom this month?  Here's a snipit:

"He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy). I gave birth to him naturally; without drugs or painkillers and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour..."  And then she attaches a picture of her angelic little boy blissfully nursing and she's got red lipstick on, is pin thin and not a hair out of place.  She had him 12 days ago. 

Why do statements like this from celebrities annoy me so?   At 12 days post-partum I was ragged. I mean RAGGED.  Tired, grumpy, elated, then sad, tired again, rinse, repeat.  I certainly wasn't glamming up with red lipstick while breastfeeding in a kimono.

  1. Um, yeah. There was nothing pretty about me 12 days post-partum, nor was my little guy blissfully nursing. At least I can say I did not have a long and difficult labor, and I did it without drugs too. So take that, Miranda Kerr!
