Dealbreakers: How to be labeled a "motherbitch"

What are your dealbreakers?


Dealbreakers: how someone goes from a possible friend to being labeled a motherbitch in my book.


In case you missed the definition of my word:






I thought we could be friends, but then you...were not tolerant of any beliefs different than your own. Whether it's religion, breast v. bottle, political party, WHATEVER it is. Even if I happen to agree with you on your issue- I see the other side and have no problem with people who believe differently than I do. If you automatically write someone off for believing differently than you, well, I write you off for your narrowmindedness. Straight to the motherbitch category you go.



I thought we could be friends, but then you...acted like a child expert. It's okay to share what worked or didn't work for your child, but it is NOT okay to tell everyone that your way is the only way and that all children will take to your advice the same way your child did. I have news for you: my OWN three kids are so different that I have to use different strategies with each of them, so do not tell me that your way is the only right way to parent. You've now become another motherbitch post for my readers to laugh at.



I thought we could be friends, but then you...badmouthed someone else's child. Whether it was mine or some other child on the playground: who are you to judge someone's child based on what you happened to see for 30 seconds on the jungle gym? Do you know anything else about that child? Is your own child perfect? Add another 50 motherbitch points if you do actually think your own child is perfect. They are just kids; don't judge. However, we can now all judge you here.



I thought we could be friends, but then you...visibly shuddered when I told you I have 3 boys. Boys can be rowdy and difficult and certainly dirty. And no, I'm never going to get to have all the pink cutesy tutu stuff. But, they're mine and I love them. I'm the one who is taking them home with me, so you can save your shuddering for after I leave, please, motherbitch.




I thought we could be friends, but then you...were back in your size 0 jeans a week after delivering your third baby. Because I hate you for that.



Okay, okay, that last one is a total lie. I won't boot you to the motherbitch category automatically for that. I'm just jealous. But, if you talk incessantly about how easy it was for you to do that, I might just have to shove some cookies down your throat and call you a not-so-nice word.




Disclaimer: I realize I could be labeled a motherbitch for many reasons. People who live in glass houses and all that stuff...but my blog isn't made of glass, so I can have fun throwing stones here.

As a mom of 3 boys I am with ya on that one. And why comment on a child's behavior in public, ummm they learned it somewhere so question their PARENTS not the child.. and keep it to yourself as a rule... just saying cause I am sure someone somewhere thinks your kid is an absolute brat... and I will be the first to tellya mine ain't perfect lol hello they are BOYS it iwll be loud and usually obnoxious and filled with variou body odors.. but I love them anyway

I have to be careful not to act like a child expert...and it's not really because I think I'm a child expert, it's more because I'm amazed that I have a 17 and 15 year old and that we are ALL still alive!

I think you need to contact Webster and get motherbitch added to the dictionary! Another hilarious post as usual. The motherbitches I can't stand are the ones that are pristinely groomed and dressed to the nines at the playground (along with their children), and me and mine are dressed in t-shirts and sneaks. (I'm lucky if Miss H lets me brush her hair in the morning!)

Raising boys is a lot different than raising a girl, sometimes harder and sometimes not, but I wouldn't trade my son in for another girl any day!

Let me tell you who needs an "honorary" motherbitch title. The bitches who don't have any kids yet feel the need to tell you all the things that you are doing wrong because they read some book(s).

Are you serious?

Blogger Em said...

I had to cringe about the comments about other kids - I'm guilty. But usually after I've known them for a very long time :-) Every child has a redeeming quality or three, right - I need to remember that more.

Sniff - I'm a Motherbitch!!

And the boy comments - oh the boy comments. Believe me, I make a mental note for the day when my two beautiful sons are old enough to date - don't go chasing that girl. Her mom thinks boys are wild and stinky.

Does holding a grudge make you an even bigger Motherbitch?

I'm going back to bed.

I wish that I could post about motherbitches, but the motherbitches who I actually know who actually read my blog seem to have a field day with it. Funny, I never name names, but they always seem to know who they are. Guess that's one of the many things that makes them motherbitches!

GREAT post!!

I have to admit to being a mom who does "judge" other kids. But not the way you mean, I think. More in the... what I've learned of them over a period of time kind of way. And it happens rarely. I generally love ALL kids. But from time to time you come across one that's just... well, you just don't click.

At the time their ages were 4 months, 2, 4 and 5. Did I mention that my baby was sleeping? Motherbitch. hee hee. I feel such a release of stress just saying it.

Ra to you for calling people out. I used to be a totally judgemental non-mother bitch, even though I could also see the other side most always...I just tended to judge early and harshly. But now I'm older and, well, let's face it, perfect, and keep my quick judgements to myself, and process them later, where I realize they were usually my own issues working themselves out anyway.

I always said if I had to have all the same sex children, it would be boys. Of course, I don't have all the same sex children, but if I did, I would still say boys. I would never trade my daughter for anything, but holy hell, she is a piece of work.

Oh, and on the parenting advice, I am the same. My kids all have different things that work for them. I was told to read this specific book before Addyson came, and if I followed it, all would be daisies. Apparently Addyson didn't read the book.

I get those "three boys?!" comments all the time. I completely agree too that each one is different and what works for one won't for another. Oh, I would like to add to the motherbitch category the women that assume my children are friends and not brothers, or that I have kids with different daddies, simply because my husband's hispanic genes completely took over one childs body and my genes took over the the other two. I assure you, the oldest is mine too - I watched him pop out!

You find the most awesome memes!! I'll have to remember this one!

With that said, I love this post. And you are so right about many of those. When moms at the park find out I have 2 sets of twins (3 boys, at that) they give me a sad face. I even had one mom say "please accept my condolences" and then she and her motherbitch friend laughed as if I would find that funny. It all worked out since I got to have a good laugh when her daughter ended up with a bucket load of sand in her hair and she freaked out screaming at her daughter, "Now I'm gonna have to give you another bath when we get home".

This was about the funniest thing I have read in a really, really long time. It is all so true! I have another one, I hate it when women criticize other moms behind their back, to me, another mom! Who are any of us to judge actions of other moms? Some of the things moms have criticized other moms for I am totally guilty of, so what does that make me to them?

This is very very funny. I couldn't quote you on my regualr blog (for all the reasons you started this anonymous blog, i.e. FAMILY read it) BUT you are one funny lady. Specially loving the Size 0 jeans one... erm, make mine even a size 12. I'm STILL jealous.
Anyhoo, I'm visiting on your SITS day... and gald I did. I think I'll follow you cos you look like FUN.

When I lived in so cal...we went to school with a lot of motherbitches. I always knew they were...but you gave me a good word for them.

You make some good points. Personally, I'd prefer boys to girls any day. No shuddering from me.

Congrats on your SITS day!

Haha, I can think of a few of these! Great term, I'm going to try not to call anyone that to their face though!

People actually shutter after you say you have three boys. That's just weird.

Happy SITS day.

Does the shuddering count - if I have 3 boys under 9 myself? I love this post! Have a great SITS day! :)

I'd always just called them the Stepford, but I like "Motherbitch" so much better.

hehe...I have met many motherbitches in my life, a sub-class of which are the "spandex mommies" at my children's school. Oy - totally the mean girls, now with kids and botox!

*LOL* love the list. Although somedays I'm afraid I might fall in the motherbitch category.... I'll leave you guessing where. ;)

I love "motherbitch." They are everywhere around here. Particularly the not-so-tolerant kind. LAME!

Happy SITS Day!

You said it, sister! Can't stand those size zero bitches...Ha ha. I call them elastic moms because they snap back so quickly after pregnancy. Wish it were me, guess I'll have to live with my usual sized seven self.

I am totally with you on the intolerance one. You do not want your kids to be around narrowminded people.
Hindering their gorwth and exploration via exposing them to someone like that is just silly.

Of course they are a good example of what not to be like. :-)

Oh, I hope I am never any of those things to any other mother! I've been on the receiving side, ugh!

Stopping by from SITS! I could use some "boy" advice! I have two (3 and 18 mos). Good grief!! They try my patience but I love them so much! Yay for boys!

Oh, I am so with you on the judgement. If there's anything I hate in this world, it's judgement. People should just live and let live.
I would love it if you dropped by my blog sometime! www.toulouseandtonic.com
Keep it up! And I'll keep reading.
