So, i work in a Mall....and i probably wouldn't have really noticed this if i didn't work there (even tho this happends anywhere i go). I've noticed that when i'm out, without my son, i get some of the nastiest looks from other mothers (its more from the older moms, but i get it from all different ages) as if i dont know what its like to be a mom! I know when you first look at me, i don't look like your TYPICAL
mom. (EVEN THO THERES NOT A "TYPICAL" MOM...I'M NOT TRYING TO OFFEND ANYONE
!) i'm only 98lb's, 5'2", bright red hair, piercings and tattoo's everywhere....I know i don't look like i've had my son by any means (and if anyone knew the struggle i've had with my weight, you'd understand where i'm coming from) but i think it's quite interesting how some mom's are quick to judge by appearance. I wish i could explain the look in their eyes when i have those encounters...its like a "bitch, you have no idea what its like! just wait till you have one of your own, you wont be smiling like that! you wont be small like that anymore...and how the HELL are you gonna explain those tattoos!"
kinda looks. i could on and on about what i'm sure their thinkin' in their head when they see me...but if you only knew the shit i've been thru...you'd think twice about shootin' those nasty looks at people. You don't know me, and i don't know you....so can't we just let things flow? why do people have to judge based on appearance?
i guess i just wanna know if anyone has these thoughts, or issue? i have a feeling i'm not the only one.....
"...stay positive and love your life!"
