This is why we can't have nice things
Welcome to Butter and Chaos.
For years I resisted writing about parenthood and motherhood, for reasons I’ll outline later.
Today, the reasons to write are stronger.
I will use this space to consider
— the good parts (“butter”)
— the bad (“chaos”)
— structures, assumptions and expectations that lead both to be the way that they are, especially focusing on the chaos
through personal reflections, stories, interviews and sometimes, maybe, broader observations.
It’s a continuation of my work at The Daily Asker, but with a different approach and a new purpose: to interrogate not the gender wage gap, but multiple motherhood and parenthood gaps.
