What happens when you eat in front of a young child
- Child: I'm really liking this food
- Child: This is some good food
- Child: WOAH WOAH WOAH, WHAT DO YOU HAVE THERE?
- Adult: Nothing. Nothing at all.
- Child: I see it. Tell me.
- Adult: Fine. It's food.
- Child: Give me some.
- Adult: You have your own.
- Child: But your's is different.
- Adult: You don't like it.
- Child: I'll be the judge of that.
- Adult: Don't you remember last time?
- Child: Nope. Gimme.
- Adult: But...
- Child: I'm just gonna bug you until you give me some
- Adult: Fine...
- Child: Yuck. Are you trying to make me hate you?!
- Adult: I told you you wouldn't like it.
- Child: More please.
- Adult: What?! You hate...
- Child: More
Having children is like voluntarily going insane.
“Oh good morning love, you’re so cute!”
Five seconds later…
“Oh dear God how did you even make that much shit, jesus take the wheel.”
“Oh you’re so adorable!” *snuggles*
*baby barf all over*
“Omg you little shit why.”
Screaming for two hours
“WHY DID I THINK KIDS WERE A GOOD IDEA PLEASE GOD WHY”
Two minutes later
“Omg yer so precious sleeping *takes 50 million pictures*”
To the mom who’s breastfeeding: Way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You’re a good mom.
To the mom who’s formula feeding: Isn’t science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn’t produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You’re a good mom.
To the cloth diapering mom: Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You’re a good mom.
To the disposable diapering mom: Damn those things hold a lot, and it’s excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You’re a good mom.
To the mom who stays home: I can imagine it isn’t easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You’re a good mom.
To the mom who works: It’s wonderful that you’re sticking to your career, you’re a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it’s fantastic. You’re a good mom.
To the mom who had to feed her kids from the drive thru all week because you’re too worn out to cook or go grocery shopping: You’re feeding your kids, and hey, I bet they aren’t complaining! Sometimes sanity can indeed be found in a red box with a big yellow M on it. You’re a good mom.
To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week: Excellent! Good nutrition is important, and they’re learning to enjoy healthy foods at an early age, a boon for the rest of their lives. You’re a good mom.
To the mom with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can’t run around. You’re a good mom.
To the mom with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don’t they? We’ve all been through it. You’re a good mom.
To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above? Glass houses, friend. Glass houses.
So, I saw this on confessionsofamadmumblr today:
Ironically, I usually rather quite like both of the admins that responded, but it makes my stomach turn that these girls help run this blog. I was like “What? No way! How can they support this? I can’t even—-“ It just left a bad taste in my mouth. But whatever, I didn’t unfollow either of their individual accounts, I just chose not to follow this one.
