Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

The Bad Mommy Weekly: Jealousy's a kick


I'm the type of bad mommy who might want to kick the waitress when we take my son and my niece out to dinner.
Yes, Prissy is adorable, but lady, if you bring 8 different members of the staff to our table to discuss how utterly beautiful she is without blinking an eye at MY son, his feelings are going to be hurt. Sure, he may be a little annoying what with all the straw sword-fighting, but if you'd just tell him he's cute, too, he'll probably stop poking you in the gut with those straws - and his mommy might not accidentally dump a glass of ice water on your shoes. Hey - I am the only person allowed to roll her eyes at my kid.
I love Monsoon to bits, but I'm not always the best example of how to cope with jealousy.

This is awesome! Put it out there Bad Mommy, love it. People never think about how rude they are being when they do shit like that.

You're kidding?!? That ice water should have been aimed a little higher like right at the stomach!

That sort of thing drives me up a wall!!!!

And I just saw your tweet - yes, we run into that often. I feel for Fynn, so I always say something about how he's such a good brother and give him some props about how he's a cutie too. Drives me nuts!

Forget the waitress and go for the cause of the problem - the niece. Shave her head while she's sleeping. Or accidentally write on her face with a marker. She won't be so cute anymore. Problem solved. You're welcome.

(Probably just as well that I'm without children)

This post is hilarious. I love how you put it all out there, my friend.

Oh, and I would be right there with you. Don't compliment my kid? Yup. There are going to be words.

C. Beth said...

Thankfully in our household I'm the one getting all the compliments.

Oh, better go so I'm not late for my therapy. They say I'm delusional; I just don't see it.

why do girls only like to look at girl babies? Boys are adorable too!

Michelle said...

That drives me nuts. I HATE that. People do that with my wee ones, paying all the attention to Little Miss. Including my niece who practically ignores Mister Man (who was her favorite until Little Miss came along). *sigh*

Molly said...

This cracks me up! I am not a fan of people gawking at kids in general. Move ON...

Christina said...

It might make you a bad mommy, but sounds like you had an inconsiderate waitress.

She's lucky water was the only "accidental" spill. ;-)

Laughing because I LOVE your humor!!

SO crazy. You were above me at SITS today, and I was here yesterday, AND I read this post earlier this week. Apparently I'm stalking you :)

Sorry about the lame restaurant treatment...people can be so clueless sometimes. Bring on the spills!

Have a good weekend!
