Yeah girls, you in?
Let's do some Mommy-bullying!
It's soooo fun.
Let's decide who has too many kids!
Let's tell someone they should have MORE (you can't JUST have one!)
Let's decide who didn't take time to change a diaper fast enough!
Let's make fun of a Mommy for being too skinny, too fat, or did you SEE her roots?
Let's tell Mommy's to "just take time for themselves" when we don't know that situation or how impossible it is.
Let's solve problems of people we don't even know!!
Let's say, "you just MAKE your KIDS clean it up" and decide that Mommy has no control over her house or family when her kids make messes.
Let's crap on someone for having a messy house, or better yet, for daring to have a clean house.
Let's say,"how dare you scream at or *aaah oh no* spank that child".
Ooh, your kids have TV's in their rooms?
WHOA your kids aren't ALLOWED to watch TV?
You order out dinner? Slacker.
Ugh, you MAKE dinner? Overachiever.
You WORK? I guess you don't care about your kids.
You STAY HOME?? Don't you want a REAL life?
Let's judge personal choices over public, private, or homeschool
Let's fight over formula or breastfeeding.
It's gonna be awesome!
I'm a little irritated today, i guess that's coming through, huh.
I'm so sick of the grown up bullying that goes on. The Mommy attacks. The family attacks.
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
This has been on my mind so much, as i see people posting or tweeting things about teaching kids not to bully and how important this is. Then two seconds later, they are doing it to another Mommy. But that's ok when we're adults, right? We're allowed. I'm allowed to say Mrs Duggar is a horrible, selfish, disgusting person for having "too many kids" - in case you wondered, i think they are an awesome family, they seem to be happy, LOVE EACH OTHER, have a great family value system, and i think it's amazing they have always gone without Government assistance - they don't want YOUR money to take care of THEIR children. They are teaching their children you work for what you want. No handouts. I admire the hard work, and i totally get why they would keep having kids. Kids are amazing. Insane, but amazing. So put that in your pipe. - i'll make fun of her hair, her clothes, and decide she's not working hard in any way at all. This attitude of, "I'm better than you because i know when to stop having kids" thing is ridiculous.
WHY DO YOU CARE?? How could it POSSIBLY be affecting your life enough that you want to CHANGE THEIRS.
The Mommy attacks over politics, as though if you have any personal beliefs/concerns, or if you dared to post a link to THAT tv channel, you are now worth nothing, and your opinions are stupid and ridiculous, and you shouldn't be allowed to speak to your children about anything. All i will say about this, is have you ever bothered to notice who is bullying who, who starts name calling? Because i certainly have. Again, so much of the time it's all people that get on the soap box of stopping all bullying. Are you serious? So, let me get this right, if we don't all agree (or i don't agree with you) i'm stupid? But then let's break out the word tolerance...but you can't tolerate a differing opinion? Umm...ok....
Everyone is different. Everyone is passionate about something.
We are all Mommies with kids who have super bad days where we want to just get in that car and drive off. Now, you know full well it would end in a trip running errands where we buy things for our families and come right back, but still. We have good days that outweigh the bad. But to some, if you speak of one bad day, you don't deserve to be a Mom. You're horrible. They smell blood, and come in for the kill.
I don't want to be that person. I don't want to be friends with that person. I want it to stop. Why people think they, in their infinite wisdom, can judge a stranger and sentence them, is beyond me.
You have no idea. You see snippets of life. You see a picture of a moment. You read pieces of days. You don't have the whole story.
Maybe everyone should stop thinking they are Sherlock Holmes and solving the crime of the unfit Mommy, the skinny Mommy, the fat Mommy, the Mommy with "too many kids", the clean house Mommy, the messy house Mommy, the working Mommy, the Stay at home Mommy, or the Mommy who is giving her kids pound cake for breakfast on a snowy day.
Can everyone just play nicely, like we all tell our kids a million times a day?
And hecks-to-the-yes, I am talking to myself as well.
