Well I am a bit late on the “Am I Mom Enough” posts because, well I have been busy being a mom! I saw the Time Magazine cover and yes it urked me. My first thought “that has got to be uncomfortable” I mean seriously just imagine if you drank all your drinks standing up on a chair :)! My second thought was “here we go again” another mom publicly attacking all the rest of us for what we aren’t doing right. I mean seriously do we always have to go down this same road? Why can’t everyone just mind their own children
Am I pro breastfeeding, sure I am! Did I nurse my kids till they were 4 , Hells No! Does that make me a bad mom, Hells No! My second had severe reflux and would only, finally, start gaining weight once we put her on Similac Alimentum…..FORMULA….Does that make me a bad mom? I spent months and months going to GI Specialists, trying different meds, bottles, rocking, swaying, crying and praying that my baby girl would just gain some weight. We spent over $10 a day on formula for over a year but I am sure some dumb-*ss mom out there would tell me “Breast is Best” to which I would reply….STFU and mind your own children
My kids sleep in my bed, does that make me a pushover parent because I can’t deal with the whole Cry It Out, will my children never sleep alone, will they have sleep issues for the rest of their lives because I let them sleep in my bed? If you believe that then please..keep it to yourself and mind you own children!!
I let my kids watch tv, I let them stay up till 9pm, I make them separate dinners of things they like, I don’t make them clean up their rooms or their toys half the time, I buy them lots and lots of toys, am I spoiling my children…well they say please and thank you so if that isn’t enough to you then leave me alone and mind your own children
I work full-time and someone else watches my babies all day..I know you couldn’t imagine someone else raising your babies but…..STFU and mind your own children (I have no choice but to work…..idiot)
I am just so sick of it all. We are all women, we should be supportive, we should be encouraging and instead on the cover of Time Magazine, we are judgmental! Morons like Alanis Morrisette think they can use their celebrity to judge other mothers, why not find a charity and use your celebrity power to help mothers not put them down.
Oh and screw you Time Magazine, this isn’t news, this is another way to make women and moms feel as if they aren’t good enough and pit us against each other for no reason. I AM MOM ENOUGH!! I kiss, hug and tell my babies I love them every second I can. I don’t give a sh*t if another mom doesn’t think I am Mom Enough because my children do so STFU and mind your own children!!
