  • Yep yep. I know these kinds of people. And I have learned that those people will always believe that they are better, no matter what is happening. Their marriage could be falling apart and their house is being forclosed, but they are still amazing parents...
    I just remind myself that the proof of how good of a parent you are is in the pudding... My DD is 19 months, knows her abc's, can count to ten in english, count to five in two other languages, has wonderful table manners, sleeps through the night, speaks more than 40 words in 3 languages, and I am a sahm, i work with her all day everyday.
    So just concentrate on your kids, making sure you are doing the best you can, and in a few years, when both of your kids are in school, you will see the difference in your kids vs. Others.

  • Well I hope you feel better. Sometimes people think they are better because behind a shield or the safety of thier own parents home it seems better. I have friends like this and just people I know I take what they say with a grain of salt or in one ear and out the other.

  • Sounds like someone hacked you off this morning - just keep in mind being a mom isn't a competition.

  • Mme.langley.... come be my mommy? I applaud you. Kudos girl kudos.
    And to the original poster ( I get sidetracked so easy) those kind of people need to have their safety net dropped so they land on their own noses and see what being a PARENT instead of a GENETIC DONOR is about. Got a bil like that. He's "awesome" and his mommy always bails him outta any trouble ** guess that why her 27 yr old can't do anything for himself, hmmmm?
    Seems to me you have reality and you KNOW what's up. Amen sister,amen

  • No one...not even you is better than anyone else. Live your life, and who cares about how others live theirs?
