Oh, That Kind of Mom

I really hate how, as moms, we try to label each other by stereotypes.  You know, the crafty mom, the over protective mom, the party mom, etc.

I really wish there was a way to be accepted for who I am and who I am as a mom.  I don’t feel like I fit into any particular mold, and my guess is, most moms don’t.  But moms try to choose a group to which they closest fit and then try to squeeze themselves into the pre-labled package.

I’ve tried to fit into a mold myself, but it just doesn’t work.  I like to be crafty and cook, I really really do…but it’s not all I live for.  I also like to drink, but I’m not really a party mom, I’m more of a wallflower.  I like to be funny and talk about silly subjects but I’m not much of a comedienne.  I’m really only funny to myself.  I also like sex and I think it’s funny to talk about, but of course a lot of moms frown on it.  They will talk about it in private at ladies night but not in mixed company or around people they don’t know, which I think is really dumb.  It’s not like those people don’t do it too.  So as you can tell, I’m a bit of Martha Stewart mixed with May West and a splash of Felicia Day (who you don’t even know.)

Anyway, I’m curious if other moms have the same problem.

 

One thought on “Oh, That Kind of Mom

  1. Ok, I totally had to respond.. because of the last line. I *adore* Felicia Day. She is so much more than meets the eye.

    Also, I enjoyed this post quite a bit. As a mom who always questions herself, I really appreciated it.
