I keep meaning to do a post about
Scary Mommy Bloggers.
You know who I mean-
they have at least 3 children
and usually a set of multiples because that is just tres chic!
If they only have one, it’s because they are young,
but don’t fear,
they are well on their way to producing the requisite number!
So who are these Scary Mommies,
well, they are first and foremost,
Happy and Perky ALL THE TIME.
I do mean all.the.time.
well, they are bloody geniuses.
They take French and Latin
and of course they speak English
better than a college Senior majoring in English.
Oh, and how old are these fluent speakers
of multiple languages?
How did they get so smart, you might wonder?
Well, of course the children are homeschooled!
What intelligent mother would EVER consider
Not these Moms.
They actually WEAR their babies.
And of course they breast feed.
And these special mothers would Never Even Consider
Throw Away Diapers.
These mothers are proud owners and users
of Reusable Cloth Diapers.
They talk patterns…
They eat organic.
They have their own gardens.
The children NEVER misbehave.
They go to church all the time.
They run 10 miles a night.
While wearing their babies.
And teaching them sign language.
Basically, they are perfect.
You know them.
You have been to their pages!
When I first started blogging I was
alarmed at how completely inadequate
I was when compared to these Heroes of motherhood.
There were SO many.
And then one day, I thought in my head,
every.single.day in their life can not be this perfect.
They have to be faking it.
And why in the world would you want to fake it?
I mean, motherhood is many things.
Glamorous? Not so much.
Can’t these women be happy to be normal.
Do they have to be PeRfEcT
and have pErFeCt children?
When I met this blogger
who actually calls herself Scary Mommy
This Mom is real.
Real and Cool!
Learning and Growing.
I would rather be like her,
than all the baby wearing, organic pea eating,
perfect children raising mothers
on the planet : )
When she emailed to say that
I just about died of happiness.
Thankfully I am still alive : )
so I will be able to enjoy this AWESOME picture.
I will show you the picture when it comes.
I really don’t know which picture to pick.
Feel free to leave suggestions : ).
Do you know real Scary Mommies?
If you think this post is about you,
Don’t worry, it’s not : )
It’s really about being fake
when you don’t have to be.
Here in blog world,
imperfect is perfect.
Come as you are,
Perfectly Imperfect Mommy’s are always welcome here!
How many languages do your children speak?
Kaish speaks English like a RoCk StAr.
That is his only language right now.
And I am OK with that.
