Have you ever referred to yourself as “Mom of the Year” after yelling at your kid or nuking processed chicken products for the wee ones to eat for dinner? I have. I have heard my friends and fellow mothers do this.
And, since it’s Friday and I am on the back end of a bout with the stomach flu (which means my jeans will be loose for only about 6 more hours), I am issuing a plea. To all moms: Please stop using this Mom of the Year BS to beat yourself up. Dads aren’t doing this so why are we?
For a more impassioned plea (written when my jeans were not loose) see my post here at Mom.Me.
What do you think? Have you said this about yourself?
