Dear other moms,
Okay, so here’s the thing. Feel free to judge me all you want.
Judge me when you see me in the grocery store filling my cart with a crapload of sugary cereals.
Judge me for losing it and yelling at my kids every other morning because they won’t get their shoes on.
Judge me when you see my kids climbing up the slide or sliding down the banister.
Judge me when you see me looking at my cell phone when I’m supposed to be hanging with my kids.
Judge me when I hold my kid’s hands and spin him around until his arms almost pop out of the sockets.
Judge me when we go out for sushi and bring chicken nuggets for the rugrats.
Judge me for calling my kid rugrats.
Judge me for letting my kids run full speed through the mall dodging all the mall-walkers.
Judge me for letting my kids lie on the bottom of the shopping cart.
Judge me for letting my rugrats dress like totally crazy people.
Judge me for taking my kids to McDonald’s too often.
Judge me for not telling my kid to take off her puffy jacket every single time she gets in the car because it’s zero degrees out.
Judge me for letting my kids draw pen tattoos all up and down their arms and legs because they’re bored.
Judge me for still getting undressed in front of my son.
Judge me for forgetting to put a fruit or veggie in their lunch boxes sometimes. Or pretending like French fries are a vegetable.
Judge me for putting my kids to bed too early.
Judge me for putting my kids to bed too late.
Judge me for letting them watch screen time for hours on end because I just need to get some stuff done.
Judge me for alllllllllllll the shit I do that you think is wrong.
Have all the opinions you want.
But here’s what you can do with them. Keep them in your head. Don’t tell me. Don’t type them to me. Don’t roll your eyes at me.
We all judge each other and that’s human nature, but the last time I checked, I wasn’t wearing a sign that says, “Tell me what you think.” I parent like this. You parent like that. And believe me, I have thoughts too, lots of them, but I know it’s not my job to tell everyone.
So go ahead, judge me all you want. But please don’t shame me.
The mom who will ask for your opinion when I want it
