Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

I won't ever get Botox, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't.

You won't ever feed your kids McDonald's more than one night a week, but that doesn't mean I can't.

I'll never be into essential oils, mindfulness, and yoga, but I still think it's pretty awesome that you are.

You won't ever drink wine on a weeknight, but that doesn't mean I should feel ashamed if I do.

I'm never gonna be good at small talk and not awkward, but that doesn't mean I don't wanna be your friend.

You're never quite sure if you fit in, but that fact alone means that you fit in with me.

We don't have to agree on everything to agree that agreeing on everything would make any friendship really freakin' boring.

So keep doing you, and I'll keep doing me, and we'll both keep respecting and supporting the crap out of each other like women should.
