Earlier this week I shared a picture on my Facebook for everyone. I thought the meaning was beautiful, as did everyone that shared it.
I was lucky, no one had anything nasty to say about it – on my wall. Other pages were getting horrible comments about why the parents in the picture are bad parents. Mostly directed to the mom who circumcised her son. Well, let me get on my soapbox real quick and tell you all why I’m a bad mom;
Landon IS circumcised. It’s not your business why Cody and I chose to have that “operation.”
Landon DOES get his shots on time every time. We just got his first flu shot on Friday, also.
I DO let my son watch TV as often as he wants.
Landon DOES tell kids that are crying to shut up, when he’s trying to talk.
When Landon gets mad, he says shit and recently learned f*ck.
Landon was breast & formula fed from birth till 6 months – then just formula fed.
We cloth diaper…when they’re clean. So once every month.
I get fed up with Landon at times and can’t wait till he’s supposed to go see his dad for the weekend.
Then I get too emotional when he’s gone for too long.
I’ve given Landon coffee, mixed in his milk.
I still take showers with Landon.
I let the dog lick his face.
Despite all the bad, Landon is happy. He laughs everyday. He hugs strangers. He wants to kiss everyone’s owies. He never goes to bed hungry. He has a dry diaper, always. Most importantly, he’s loved beyond words.
No mother is perfect. We’re all tired at the end of the day. But our child isn’t any worse off than he would be, with one of the “good moms.”
So tell me, in what ways are you a [not so] bad mom? Link up your posts!
