My Baby Is Better Than Your Baby.

Is she really? Well of course my Munchkin is the best in my eyes, as I am sure your little Munchkins are better than all others too. But why in this already difficult world of Mommyhood, do some Mommies find it necessary to compare and thus judge what your child may or may not be doing?

Recently it has been brought to my attention, that there is a child Munchkins age that can count to 10 completely unassisted, and say almost the entire alphabet. Another child that is 4 months younger is already potty trained.

While inquiring, not to me mind you, but to my Mom, about the Munchkins potty abilities, "said person" found that my lack of "consistency" must be the issue...

Um, Yeah! Hello?

Who wants to sit on the floor in the bathroom for days on end? I would never make it to my salon appointments and would most definitely miss out on my Soap Operas, as the cord from the television won't reach the bathroom.

Normally these kinds of things don't get to me, but for some reason lately, it's been piling up and going unsaid, and since I'm too chicken shit to call people out in person, I decided to do it here. Stop worrying so much about what everyone else thinks and get over your own insecurities about what your child is or isn't doing, love on your kid a little more, and support your fellow Mommies, because at the end of the day, do your really think any of these kids are going to college in diapers?

Now, if you will excuse me, the Brady/DiMera feud is heating up on Days and my toes could use a fresh coat.

AMEN sista'. I've been debating on the whole potty issue thing and well that's as far as it's gotten. Count to 10 and do the ABC's, whatever. My kid can beat up your prodigy child. Again, whatever.

I'm with Red's Momma. My kid can definitely beat up your prodigy - just ask the moms from our playgroup today!

We've done some things kind of early and some things waaaay late. As long as they are happy and well adjusted who cares?

Now, not to brag, but I can count to 10 AND say my ABC's. Please don't be jealous......

Yes, but can you poop in the potty?

ummm. my response would be "She's late because I'm an awful mother and I don't care about her." I love making the idiot feel like the idiot.

Everybody is an "expert"!

I can remember a family member making a smart ass comment to me once that her daughter walked at 9 mths, unlike Super B - who walked at 13mths.

My response: "Oh I would die. I'm SO GLAD he didn't walk until later. Gave me a few more months to keep all my breakables out."

She didn't think that was as funny as I did.

LOVE your blog!

Let them know that Munchkin may not count, but she can make a mean martini.

Jeri. has she been mixing you martini's again? She's always trying to hang with the older crowd.
