Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

She has tattoo's, so she must be a terrible mom.

Today was a warm day for this time of year here, so I brought out the tank and capri's. It will be the last time I wear them this year, seeing as how we have a cold front coming in this weekend. I have 8 tattoo's. 7 on my upper body, which, with wearing the tank, all 7 were visible. The 8th one covers the right side of my right calf completely, which with the capri's, was totally visible.

 I had to pick DD up early for her dentist appointment, and after we left, we went to the park. DD was running around, playing, and I was sitting on a bench, reading. DD was in my line of sight at all times, so I had no worries about where she was or what she was doing. A few minutes before we left, these 2 women came jogging by. They jogged by a few more times, and the last time that they went by me, I over heard one of them say to the other woman :

Look at her! She has so many tattoo's! I hope she doesn't have a child here!

Then the other woman laughed a bit, and by this time they were pretty much right in front of me, when the other woman said this :

If she does have a child here, she is a terrible mother for having that many tattoo's. That just teaches her child that its okay to destroy your body and graffiti it up.

 

I just sat back in shock! I mean, 2 woman who have no idea who I am, or my situation, judging me like that! All my tattoo's are tastefully done, and not a single one is a vulgar tattoo. I know that DD is taken care of way before I even think about getting a tattoo done. What would take over a person to be like that, and judge someone that they don't even know, much less never seen before?

 I ask DD all the time if she will ever get one, and she says nope all the time. I have plans for 2 half sleeves, 2 cover ups, and several more individual tattoo's that will hopefully get done in the next year or so.

I'm thinking about, when I get  my work done, going back to this park and waiting to see if these 2 women come by again, and purposely showing my new ones off......I'd love to see their reactions! lol

I have many tattoos, I don't cover them, I've never been called a bad mom because of them. Crazy. I'm glad I don't encounter the crazies so many of you ladies do.

I'm sure that's exactly how it occurred. 

More commonly you felt judged by glances and whispering among them and concocted your own assumptions from that display of behavior. 

Really. I doubt you "heard" any of that.

My DS wants tattoos but both my DD's are not interested at all. 

I have plans for full sleeves, finishing my back and legs.

 It's like I told another PP, once I get all my work done, I'm thinking about going back to that park, just to see if those ladies come by again. I wonder what they would say when they see me with 2 half sleeves, and several more individual ones........

I'd judge you more for not knowing when to use apostrophes.
