Excited to report that I received my first “Bad Mom” email. Yayy!
I would have posted it sooner, but unfortunately my mother-in-law passed away of a sudden heart attack last week. We are shocked and sad and guilt-ridden (we should have done this, and should have done that), but have vowed to be there more for my father-in-law in the future.
I am dedicating this post to my mother-in-law, because she would sometimes read my blog (which honestly gave me anxiety!!! What will she think of this???) She always told me that she thought I am a great writer, but said I swear too much in my blog (LOL), and I’m sometimes too hard on her baby boy (Yes, I probably am).
So, here’s to you Mom B. We love you and will miss you and will think of you often….
The Bad Mom email I received: I am a bad mom every day of my life and here are a few examples…. while removing a splinter from my son’s foot I kept wiping it with a cotton ball of alcohol he was whining and crying and me and the other son were telling him (actually chanting to him) “suck it up” over and over. I finally finished and gave it one last wipe (he was still bitching and moaning) and it was over! I get my splinter removing supplies together to put away and realize my “alcohol” was actually nail polish remover! Jlee says: Yes, I was told to “suck it up” many-a-times as a kid! Love it!!
I gave them a vitamin drink and told them it will help keep them healthy during this bad cold season and will give them a lot of energy blah blah blah… oldest drinks it and immediately begins bouncing off the walls and acting obnoxious. I scream at him and tell him “It’s supposed to give you energy, not make you act like an idiot!” Jlee says: LMAO!!
Many many more mother of the year moments in my life==more to come I am pumping breast milk as we speak at work…. trying to make up for giving my 10 month old baby a lollipop to keep him quiet!
LMAO, thanks friend for sharing your “Bad Mom” moments. I hope we can all get a laugh out of this and remind ourselves that we are doing the best that we can.
PS I’m hoping to post “Bad Mom” stories on Mondays so forgive this being a couple days late!! Send me your bad mom stories to firstname.lastname@example.org!!
