If you eat chocolate you must not love your children!

How can someone tell me that because of something I choose to put in MY body that I am a bad parent and don't love my children. I did not smoke while pregnant, don't smoke around my children, but it doesn't matter because I'm doing something unhealthy so I must not give a damn about my kids. This just blows my mind.
So I guess this means that if you eat junk food and don't exercise you must not love your kids either right? Because that would be unhealthy.
Yes I smoke! I also eat fast food sometimes, and I have a beer, or a glass of wine, or even a shot of tequilla sometimes on the weekends when the kids are in bed. Does any of this affect the way I love my children? Hell No! Every bit of my heart and soul goes into those boys and NO ONE can try to tell me otherwise.

  • LOL that's funny. I guess 90% of the population must not love their children then. That's is the dumbest thing I have heard so far today.

  • Exactly!! I know what you mean.
    There are some freakishly mean women on CM who love to tell everyone that only THEY are right and that everyone else is a bad Mom.
    So immature.

  • If every bit of your heart and soul goes into your children you don't feel the need to try and convience others that it does. You are so busy being a good parent that you don't have to convience anyone. Just a thought.

  • LOL is amusing when people "know" more about your feelings than you do. I have some chocolate this morning now I am so ashamed of myself

The fa ct is that some people cant fel goos sbout who they are unless they look at what others fail in ...but, its okay because ALmost everyone I know is not ike that, alot of it is peopel being who they wish they were while behind the computr...Thats a fact!

  • Actually my little guy is napping and the other's are at school and I hopped on here for a minute and saw the post that got me hot. Normally I don't even reply to things like that, but when someone that doesn't know anything about me tries to make me feel like less of a mother I get a little irritated. I'm not trying to convince anyone that I'm a good mother, because I already know I am everytime I look at my happy healthy beautiful little boys.
