I am seeing things on RHOOC about child rearing and plastic surgery that I don't quite understand. Perhaps someone can help me "get it"?
1) About child rearing.
How on earth do these women find time to date (or remarry) while raising children? How do you do it? I am sorry, I am married with three young children and I struggle to find the time to date my own husband. (Don't worry about me and mr. withinterest -- we are making it happen, but...we make an extra effort to be present for the kids.)
How does one find the energy to date outside of the home?
How can one do this while giving the children the attention that they need? And finally, isn't anyone concerned about exposing their children to increased levels of risk of general mistreatment, abuse, or worse molestation?
I am curious. All of these women, with the exception of Jeana have had children and have dated or remarried (in Lauri's case, multiple times).
2) About plastic surgery.
I found Tamra's example interesting. She has young children, the youngest is two -- but she has had implants for 18 years. I don't imagine that she nursed her children. (Okay -- I know -- it isn't for everyone despite the known benefits. I get that. ) Tamra wants smaller breasts, but, despite the pain that she is experiencing, she wasn't ready to get rid of implants altogether. I am confused.
I am guessing that large breasts are passe for the 21st century and smaller (lifted breasts) are better. Won't there come a time in the near future where the frozen botox look becomes out of vogue. I am sorry -- I have seen some people that look slightly rested as a result of having botox, so I understand it on some level. However, at some point I believe the natural look might be in again. Color me naive.
I generally think that all of these ladies look pretty good. (I also think Simon has had botox. He smiled once and he had no lines in his forehead at all.)
Finally, all of this surgery and investment in appearance must also take a good deal of time and money. I know that they have money to burn and they are rich (per their definition). But what about using that money for investing for future generations, or, making a contribution to charity?
Forgive this long post, but, I am really trying to understand this.
