Five Reasons Women are Friggin' Hardcore

Happy Monday!!! 

So I was laying in bed last night trying to sleep when all of a sudden, it hit me - Women are freaking amazing. Seriously. I mean, we all have our moments when we just want to crawl under a rock and never see the light of day again, but in the end, when you really think about it, we are pretty dang awesome. There are plenty of different reasons why each individual woman is awesome, but here are five reasons why all women are awesome.

1. We can bleed for days on end without dying. Can a man do this? No sirree. But women? While women are bleeding constantly, they are doing things like swirling in pretty white dresses, running through fields of flowers, swimming, and going horseback riding (just watch a tampon commercial if you don't believe me).

2. We can grow humans. What's that, hubby? You just grew a handlebar mustache and a mountain man beard for "No Shave November?" Well, that's cool, but I just grew a human... IN MAH BELLAY. No big deal.
3. We have an incredible sense of awareness. Whether it's reading people's emotions, looking at our kids and being able to tell if they've done something naughty, or sensing when other people need us, we are extremely aware of others. I swear this is a woman thing, because as much as I love the man, Mike is freaking oblivious to a lot of things.  

4. We can pour milk out of our boobs. Okay, apparently I'm fascinated with our bodily fluids as women, but seriously?? WE CAN FEED OUR BABIES WITH OUR BOOBS. That is freaking insane/weird/awesome/amazing.

5. We can walk around in uncomfortable shoes for hours on end. I will be the first to admit that an overwhelming amount of women's shoes are super uncomfortable. You know what, though?! We still wear them. If I see a cute pair of stilettos that are moderately uncomfortable in the store, I will buy them and I will wear them, dangit! Please note that "moderately uncomfortable in the store" means super uncomfortable when worn for more than 5 minutes. Anyway, men complain if their shoes pinch their toes even a little bit. Wimps.
You know, men are awesome, too - I just felt like pointing out all the cool things about being a woman. I mean, there are days of the month (mostly the ones that coincide with number one) where the phrase "I hate being a woman" comes out of my mouth multiple times. I figure that, this one day, I can sit here and appreciate all the cool things about not being a man.

i was just talking with my sister in laws last night how it's so crazy that men will NEVER know what it is like to bleed for days, have cramps, contractions, push a baby out etc. etc. no matter how good you are at explaining they truly will never know.
women power... woot woot! haha

True story. Women are the bizz-omb!

(Naturally men are pretty awesome too. They show amazing support and encouragement and are amazing cheerleaders. They provide a voice of reason. They take care of us and help us take care of our families. Men are amazing.)

But yeah. Women are pretty freaking special. It's kind of incredible when you think about it. I mean here I am, growing a tiny human. It's nearly impossible for me to wrap my brain around that. Pretty phenomenal gift. :)

Great post. Love it!

Amen to this!! As I was running 4 miles the other day with my pregnant friend (25 weeks and she kicks my butt!) we were talking about how men honestly could. not. hanle. being pregnant! I mean seriously, could you imagine??
The whole milk coming out of boobs still freaks me out and I've been nursing for almost 7 months, ha ha!

I am SO glad I was born a woman! I'd never want to be a man! :o)

I used to be a believer in uncomfortable shoes, but now that my feet are my main method of transportation, I've changed my stance on that.

It amazes me the amount of pain a woman can endure. We're kind of amazing.

My husband's best friend always says, "Never trust anything that bleeds for 5 days and doesn't die."

awesome post!

I keep trying to tell IC that just ONCE he needs to experience the bleeding JUST ONCE. But he seems disinclined to want to...weird :)

One time, Cam had the guts to ask me why periods were so bad. I proceeded to explain to him that MY UTERUS WAS SHEDDING and I was BLEEDING INTERNALLY and had been for three days (caps because I was pissed, of course). Never will he ever ask again.
And pour milk from our boobs...LOL I died laughing. You are hilarious and extremely accurate.

So I'm now totally and completely convinced of the all-powerful woman. My coworker's wife drove herself to the hospital. While in labor. Bam.
