Mommy shaming.

10 Oct

I went around the house last night “mommy shaming” myself while Scott was giving the girls a bath. If you are unfamiliar what mommy/dog/baby shaming is, it is basically holding up a sign in front of yourself, dog or baby admitting something shameful. I believe it all started with this dog shaming website. 

I found an article on twitter last night about “Mommy shaming”. I was laughing so hard – check it out here. I had to do one myself. I couldn’t help but admit my own mommy-shames because Lord knows I have some:

I put my kids in a tub of water and call it a bath.

I let my kids eat NERDS all the time b/c I like the noise they make when vacuumed.

My kids know what a “hoppy” beer smells like.

I don’t get dressed for day until it’s 3:15 in afternoon. And only for the (school) parents.

I am researching long distance baby monitors so I can drink w/my neighbors.

I am not picking this up unless company comes over.

I told my kids raisins are candy. It worked.

At this point, Scott asked what I was doing. I showed him my signs.

Scott: Ha. That’s cute.

Me: Cute? It’s funny!

Scott: (shrugs) Yeah, I guess.

Me: Fine. Whatever.

To my parents and in-laws: Please don’t continue on. You’re warned. 

Sorry future teenagers. Beat you to the sex cave.

And I made my 3 year old take this picture.

    Reblogged this on TURTLE LOST AT SEA …. and commented:
    The first nine months of being a mother is really painful and isn’t comparable to any physical pain (according to my mom), but everything’s worth it after those months. The pain of giving birth was all worth it once you hear the first sound of your child’s cry.

    Being a mother is really a tough job. You need to make sure that the house is clean, that the children’s grades are up, and your husband has lunch for work. But the stress and fatigue are all worth it once you child gets an A, or your husband gets promoted. These are all the perks of being a mother.

    Oh wow, too funny. Grown twenty-something kids came home for CanadianThanksgiving and at Sunday breakfast, I started laughing at myself. While eating my cold pancake I was thinking how I should tell second son and his dad to look at each other while talking instead of the newspaper (dad) and computer (son), how I should instruct youngest daughter to have the conversation with dad about grad school after breakfast, and did I need to let oldest daughter know the baby’s nose needed to be wiped? Shame on me for trying to control the room, but I was amused by my own imaginary puppet strings.
