If you’re a dude like me who has only been on Pinterest because your wife accidentally leaves the website up on your web browser, then I assure you, it’s cool to be pregnant. There’s so much trendy, cute (if I’m allowed to use that word), and fashionable stuff out there for expectant moms that it can honestly be a big game. And it has definitely become a big business.
But what happens when the baby is born? Yes, there’s a little bit of trendy still out there for the new moms. Yes, there’s some fashionable stuff out there for new moms. However, the hip, cool factor slowly fades away? And don’t even get me started on the non-fashionable stuff for dads in culture.
What is more, what about for parents of school-aged children? Is it glamorous to drive mini-vans and spend all of your time taking your kids to practices?
Additionally, what about the parents of teenagers? Don’t even get me started on how not cool that is in light of culture…
Here’s the deal. Culture has it all wrong. Culture displays the coolness, and trendiness, in the expecting stage—the waiting stage. After that, it all seems to fade away.
