Blog Friend Feature: You Might be a Motherbitch

I'm SO excited for you to meet this week's BFF. We have followed each other's blogs almost since the beginning and eventually figured out that we have so much in common that we might as well be sisters. I even refer to her as my bloggy sis.

The Mommyologist is on a mission to bring Mom Sexy back. She has such an honest voice and makes me laugh! She's also earned some really fabulous honors, too. If you aren't reading her already, you are seriously missing out.  I never miss a single post of hers!

We all know how awesome Shell is...but did you know that besides being a total sweetheart, an awesome blogger, and a great friend, she is also an inventor? That's right...Shell has invented this great little word that I've used in a sentence on more than one occasion:


Shell's definition of motherbitch is: what the mean girls of junior high turn into when they age and procreate.

In honor of rising above motherbitches everywhere, I've written a short list of what constitutes being labeled as a motherbitch. Enjoy.

You Might Be A Motherbitch...

- If my kid picks his nose and hands me a booger and I don't even flinch for one second and you look at the two of us with disgust...you might be a motherbitch.

- If your house is like a freakin' museum and you invite my 4-year old over for a playdate and he accidentally knocks over some shitty looking china figurine that you've conveniently placed on an end table and you get pissed when he knocks it over even though he wouldn't have knocked it over if you'd been smart enough to put it somewhere a bit higher...you might be a motherbitch.

- If you are super duper sweet to a mom friend's face and then do nothing but talk shit about her once she walks away...you might be a motherbitch.

- If you criticize another mother for her decision to stay at home with her kids, go to work, work from home, work part-time away from home, etc...you might be a motherbitch.

- If a new mother vents to you about how exhausted and overwhelmed she is with her newborn and you look her her with a snarky smile and say, "Oh, we never had that problem with our little Suzy Freakin' Sunshine."...you might be a motherbitch.

- If you get embarrassed talking about poop with other moms, when everyone knows that poop is the universal mom-uniter...you might be a motherbitch.

- If one of your friends bends down to tie her kid's shoe and in the process exposes her butt crack and thong hanging out of her low rise jeans and you don't either step in front of her so no one will see or tell her to get up right away...you might be a motherbitch.

- If you don't admit that your life has changed...like not even one little bit, after having a child, you are definitely a motherbitch.

A huge thanks to Shell for giving me permission to use her word for this post. Now, just to show you that I'm not a motherbitch, I'm going to go wipe my son's ass since he's yelling at me from the bathroom as I finish writing this.
LOVE it!!! Please leave the Mommyologist some comment love here and then go follow her FABULOUS blog if you don't already!

Love that word, love that post! Always enjoy "hanging out" with both of you ladies in the blogosphere. I think cool, non-motherbitches must have a lucky way of finding each other.

And yes you are amazing Shell for coining the term Motherbitch. I know way too many of those moms!

This is great. Luckily I was never "cool" enough to be a mean junior high girl so I think that excludes me from the motherbitch gene! :)

Mary, what a great post! Love it. And you're spot on. I don't get it when some moms can't deal w/ boogers/poop/diarrhea, etc...and we moms need to stick together, not fight each other!

SHell, good choice! I've loved Mary for a long time, too. Just haven't done a good job of keeping of w/ anyone....

Mary - I am cracking up...somewhere in all of your posts the topic "poop" always comes up. Love it! You are so real girl! I'd talk poop with you any day, haha.

I adore both of your blogs!! And I am not a motherbitch at all - I like other mothers way too much!! Plus, how would I cover my own mothering blunders?? LOL! Keep posting together, please!! :)

Oh Shell.This chick is RIGHT up my alley!  I love it! All of those are not "might" - hell no. Those are all motherbitches. Times two. And I know some. And they get the MommaKiss Salute when I see them acting as such. I'm going to get to her place as soon as I can.-

Motherbitch, now that is a great word. Ugh, I hate those snarky women who act like their kid is just sooo perfect. I also can't stand women who judge others for their chosen occupation, either stay at home, working part time or going back to work.
