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? :)

No and that would irritate me and probably my 11 year old daughter! Ha! Maybe I should do that when she is being a little brat!

Only if I am talking to one of the boys...

Asking my son : "are we not having a good day today?"

I don't use that term when talking to others about my boys though. I am not them... Lol
