  • I think the moms who fall in this category don't know that they do...

  • maybe...although I know I don't do everything perfect. I supposed by saying I limit my child's TV time to certiain minutes, or I don't bring in soda in the house, is that kind of passing judgement on other moms? I don't think so b/c I'm merely stating what I am doing/facts. If others take it the wrong way, oh well. That's too bad. Sure, sometimes when other more "perfect" moms say they'll bring in home-made cupcakes with full-on decorations, etc. I feel slighly inadequate for about 1/2 seconds, then I just enjoy the cupcake. This is just me.

  • no not at all, I think each to their own, what works for one doesnt necessarily work for the other, in parenting many things dont have a "right" or "wrong" way of doing things, you find what fits your family.

  • I catch myself being judgmental sometimes, but I really try to check myself.

    Actually I'm always pretty quick to talk about my imperfections with my friends - after all this is a really hard job and we're all struggling through sometimes.

    But, yeah, I know those moms & try my hardest to steer clear!

  • Im not one of these moms because my baby is still in me..who knows if i will become that way lol but i do know a mother that is just like that. Kids make mistakes and it doesnt reflect on you as a parent..its ok!

  • I rant sometimes here and to my DH.... IRL though I leave moms alone, it's hard enough without others picking on you. Besides, I've screwed up, it's a live and learn process.
