"Bitches be crazy" Do you watch The Big Bang Theory? You should. The show is hilarious but don't let your kids watch it. Or at least admit that you have let them watch it. Online on any sort of mommy blogging/forum site because you will see within minutes that "Bitches do indeed be crazy" (again Sheldon, watch it. Trust me!)
I have watched two blogger moms get raked over the coals this week. I'm sure you know what I'm about to talk about. The story is always the same. Opinion or story is shared online. Usually in complete innocence/honesty/emotional out pour and cheap form of therapy while the kids are at school. I think then some sort of alarm or sensor goes off in some moms. You know the ones I speak of. I refer to them as the "Santicmommies". The ones that LOVE LOVE LOVE telling you how bad you are screwing up your kid. Online Santicmommies are even more vicious than any of those passive aggressive ones you might run into at a party or the school drop off. That computer/smartphone they are using sure gives them a big pair of brass ovaries. Their phone case might have a cutesy picture of their kids on it but damn if they don't yield that thing like a light saber.
I get it. We write, we should get a thick skin. Don't read the comments you are probably saying. Or shrug it off. The longer I do this, the slightly better I get at that. However they are moms just like me. I'm not a writer. Haven't my run on sentences and poor grammar shown that? Even before I was blogging, I felt like a hot mess screw up every single day. Do I need this confirmed to me in print? Yeah not really.
But it's easy to troll. There is no face you are saying these unkind words to. No reaction you see. You hit send and no immediately rebuttal is given. It's like you sure told them and got in that last word. HA! Now everyone is going to see what a bad ass you are. You're not though. You're just a troll. I'm pretty sure you don't use your real name or if you do, you go on sites that you know no one in real life on. It's just a stranger so whatever damage you inflict doesn't count right?
It does though. The post I am proudest of has over 100 comments on it. Most of them agree with me. That first one that not only didn't but then decide to go for my jugular? Yeah that stayed with me. I'm human. I'm seeing in black and white just how awful you think I am. Yes disagreements happen. Open discourse? I'm all for it. When you completely disregard that person's emotions on a subject they feel passion for? Then, you are my friend, an ass hat. Since most of my posts are just me stating opinions, I expect folks to disagree. If you are expecting me to engage in a comment war, I won't though. I said my opinion. See above. I'm not typing all that shit again. Like I got time for that? I have laundry to fold.
Plus Scantimommies, lets be real here. I then start judging you and your parenting when I see you do this bullshit. Immediately! Sometimes I loose myself and rip ya right back online. Stupid. I should know better but hey I"m human. I forgive me. I'll even forgive you. Let's just own this. This is horrible and we need to stop. Unless some mommy blogger is posting how she force feeds her kids blood from newborn kittens, just scroll on bitches. Seriously. I am tired. I have clothes wrinkling in the dryer. I have a pound of ground beef I have to figure out something to do with for dinner. (oh crap is it even defrosted yet?)
Let's just stop the madness. Some men think "bitches be crazy". It's for a reason! Chill out. Deep breaths. Resume your awesomeness. Order another side of fries.
