Mommiewrites...

Shouldn't your 9 year old be in school?


You need to open your mind a little bit...just because there are moms that do things different does not make us bad or unloving parents...

On that note...I am out...
I can see this going in circles and I am uninterested in who should call themselves SAHM and who shouldn't...

Oh and thanks for the neg rep. boo hoo...

I may not know exactly what my kid's are doing right now, but at least they have friends.
Well shame on you that you don't know EXACTLY what they are doing. And you let them fight w/ bricks? Omy, we will have to turn you in. LOL!!! And even worse you got tired of them and sent them away. OH the shame


We just might need to have a contest to see which one of us qualifies for the worst mother of the year award. LOL!!!

WOW This is the best pissing contest I have seen for quite some time. I frequent a ladies scrapbooking board that was well known for their posts like this. I am better then you because (insert just about any topic), so I will pass judgement on you because blah blah blah.

If your kids are well behaved, ready for kindergarten, and nice little kids, does it really matter that they were educated at pre-school or home? What really matters is you do your best to make sure your kids are well rounded.

Default I know what you are, but what am I????

Okay. What am I?

I stay at home. My youngest is in college, but he calls me or IMs me at least once a day. We have been on the phone today as well as IM. His g/f has also IM' me today.

I used to be called a stay at home mom. What am I now? I am still a mom. And I stay at home.

So what am I?

I am not an empty nester. My son is in and out and I still do plenty of laundry, cooking and spend a lot of time w/ my son an w/ his g/friend as well. When he has a concern or a question - he calls mom.

So just b/c he is in college . . . does this make me less of a stay at home mom???

I am a professional writer, so when he was two, and I was a freelance writer, and took him to daycare 2 hours a day . . . or preschool 4 hours a day . . . or had in house babysitting while I was working . . . was I more of a stay at home mom then? Or did it not count, b/c I was also working while at home?

And did it matter? And most of all, did anyone really give a flying monkey's rump what the heck I was doing w/ my time, my kids, my home, etc?

Why is this something that is occupying someone's mind?????

So what am I? What is my LABEL? And who on this god's green earth - would possibly even CARE?????
