The Negative Mommy Blogs

I'm sick to death of the negative mommy blogs. You know the ones ... the ones who bitch and gripe about being a mom and how hard it is and how they've lost themselves and all that. Admittedly, there are times when I get that way ... when I'm freshly postpartum or super-pregnant, when I'm nursing all night and have not slept, when my husband and I are in a funk, when my kids Won't. Stop. Arguing.

Don't get me wrong ... I don't love the sappy blogs, either. I'm pretty picky that way.

Anyway, I just want to comment on some of these blogs something like, "Dang, why did you procreate? Did you think it would be simple? Next time your parents say they want grandkids just tell them no. Next time your husband bugs you for another baby, just get your tubes tied." Wait, I forgot, that's not cool. It's much better and more 2011 to TELL your man to get a vasectomy.

I like blogs like where she talks about normal mom stuff like ignoring your kids and how that makes them more self-sufficient. I don't even care if you have your kids in daycare and have to or want to work. Just stop griping about it. That's what your best girlfriends are for.

Now I'm going to comb through my last 3 years of blog posts to erase any negative crap I've posted about my kids. Never mind. I don't have time for that.
