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? :)

Lol no. My kindergartener wrote me a note saying "love you mom." I'm not going to say "we" can spell now, to my family lol, I'd never take credit for the things my kids do.

Hell no. "WE" didn't take a dump in the bed the other day, resulting in the washing of absolutely EVERYTHING. "WE" didn't have poop in our nostrils. SHE did. Hahahahahaha I bet she doesn't say "we" for shit like that!
I did the cleaning, though. Would've been nice if THAT was a "we". -.-

On occasion, but I have three and I usually use it in reference to " we" have gym today. Or "we" have a meet this weekend. Sounds normal to me. Lol

LOL I hate that.  It's as annoying as "We're pregnant." No dude, I'm pregnant.
