Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Are you one of "those" moms?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I have a friend who always uses the pronoun "we" when referring to her dd.



"We have a cold."

"We had preschool today."

"We've been hitting lately."



Lol. Really? You're both hitting? Or just her? And you went to preschool too? ;)



I know, no big deal. But it gets on my nerves a little. I tend to notice that the mom's who use "we" to refer to their kids also tend to be the ones who can't seperate their own identities from their childrens' identities and tend to be the moms that are a little too involved in their kids' every move. Actually, I read a study once that broke down the psychology of it and found it to be true.



Are you a "we" mom? :)

Not me!
And it was just ME that was pregnant too!
Add me to the list of those that get irritated when folks improperly use "we" !

Ugh no.  That's annoying and right up there with always speaking  in the third person.

But they AREN'T an extension of you. They are their own people. Bfing and baby wearing is irrelevant. They are still individuals. You have to realize that.



Quoting bigmessylife:

I'm totally a we mom and a we wife. My kids are 1 and 2 so they still feel like an extension of me, still breastfeeding, still baby wearing etc.





I'm also my husband's caregiver/advocate so that leads to the "we" wife.





It works for me :-)

Normally no.

I will say, "We had a bad day." I'm a SAHM, so when my 3 year old has a bad day it normally makes my day more difficult.

No I'm not a 'we' mom. That kind of irratates me lol. Unless you actually did the thing with your child, then don't say that you did.

Nope, and I don't think I have ever done that either.
