Okay, so, I have tried to start up multiple memes, because, well, I just want to be that cool that people actually link up with me.
Unfortunately, none of my memes have caught on.
So I started thinking. What do we ALL want? What do we all NEED?
Well, here's the deal:
I pretty much think I have the cutest, smartest, most clever, and most creative children in this entire world.
Yes, sometimes I'll mention something awesome that they've done, or why I'm proud of them, but I DO actually try to keep my mommier-than-thou feelings to myself, because really, when it comes down to it, when you're sitting around with a bunch of other mommies at playgroup, waiting for school to get out, or ~ahem~ eavesdropping in ~ahem~ on the group of cliquish mothers next to you at the library, it's really nothing but annoying.
To hear someone talk about how superior their child or, worse, their parenting style is, well, lets just say "Them's fightin' words."
No one wants to hear about it.
Mostly, I want to brag. I have some amazing kids, and I want to talk about it. As a lot of what they do and say and what they're learning has a whole bunch to do with ME as their mother, it's just not bragging about THEM.
Besides that, with all the mommy guilt we suffer from day in and day out, don't you think that it would be kind of nice to have a place to weekly display the things you're doing RIGHT??? Don't you think it would feel good, boost your confidence in your mom-hood to really just say what you think makes YOU worth it?
That's what this is about, friends. And I dearly hope you think it's worthwhile too...or this meme will end up just another notch on my bedpost...and that would not make me happy.
So link up, girls, post the button to link back here so even MORE mommier-than-thou-gals can join up, and brag away. What makes YOU the best mommy in the world???
I got the button picture on Googleimages.com. I don't know who it is. And I hope she doesn't mind me using it!!!!
