Girls are MEAN!

Girls are MEAN! For this particular post I will refer to them as girls for obvious reasons. I’ve seen it in high school, I’ve seen it after high school, I’ve seen it here, I’ve seen it there, well really I’ve seen it everywhere! Girls being mean to other girls…what gives?

Girls are jealous! Jealous as in it’s high school prom and Betty Jo just got invited by “that guy” you were hoping to go with and you want to tear her eyes out, knowing full well that it isn’t her fault he picked her! Jealous as in I can’t believe you just got your nose pierced because I was going to do that this weekend…ugh I hate you! But mind you these “girls” are not in high school, they are grown “girls” and mothers at that!

I truly don’t understand and I think I need a little help here you guys! Why do girls prey on other girls? Someone can be going along minding their own business and then WHAM! get hit right upside the head with a mean comment or a mean glance. Just yesterday I took my 4-year old to a birthday party and many of you know that I did my hair a little funkier than normal recently. Well from right behind me, I hear a whisper “you think her hair is bright enough?” Well Thank You, NO! I was thinking about going bright Teal next time! Boy would she have had a hay day with that!

But here’s what I don’t understand…she was obviously loud enough that she didn’t mind if I heard it…why on earth would any human being purposely hurt another human being? Perhaps she was viewing the scene as gorillas in the wild and she felt I was somehow infringing on her territory or does she just wish that she could die her hair bright red and is envious that I did?

This is a mother I’m talking about, remember I was at a birthday party. Oh and don’t think they travel alone, I received a few lovely looks from a few of the women at the party. I’m a little used to it, I still sport an eyebrow ring and I have a few tattoos in obvious places on my body, but just because I display a little edginess doesn’t mean that I’m a bad person, an unkind person or a person that deserves “Mean Girl” bashing!

For those who know me, they would describe me as one of the nicest, kindness human beings they know. I would jump out of a moving car to save an old lady crossing the street. I’ll clean your house or cook you dinner if just had a baby, I’ll even pick up a little dog poop if you broke your arm! I’m also the one who rarely sticks up for herself and internalizes everything! I’m nice, I’m kind and most importantly I’m a mother! It is my job to show my girls by example how others should be treated. And let me tell you something, if I EVER see one of my girls becoming a “Mean Girl” their high school life wouldn’t exist! They would be sitting quietly in our home library, next to me every Friday night, reading books about growing your own avocados!

This isn’t the first time I have been bashed offline or on and it certainly won’t be the last. Unfortunately the “Mean Girls” are here to stay, but that’s just more incentive for me to pick the bright teal color next time and perhaps a new tattoo..hmmmm, I think some shock therapy may be good for all of us!

Oh and a piece of advice to all the “Mean Girls” out there: Although you think you are superior when you are speaking badly about someone else, you really just look like an ass to the others around you!

Guest Post: Daddy Did it Again!

Don’t worry, I’m not on vacation again! When I was on vacation, Nina’s post had a few technical issues, so for those of you who missed it, it is well worth reading! Thanks Nina!

Today’s Guest Post is written by Nina who blogs at Playground for Parents! Nina is a chocoholic, internet addicted, mother of two, who is determined to save the sanity of parents everywhere. She’s keeps me on the floor, laughing constantly and is a joy to know…On with Nina’s Post!

My latest evidence that babies suck out your brain cells while nursing: the other day, I left the gym, got into my car, and found the music to be annoyingly loud, so I attempted to turn down the volume. It wouldn’t budge. Tried again. Nothing. I’m thinking that I’m going to have to pay some ridiculous sum to get the stupid stereo fixed. And while my car is in the shop, they will of course find another $1000 worth of repairs that MUST be done immediately or I will die. Then it dawned on me – the loud music wasn’t coming from my car stereo. It was coming from the ipod that was still in my ears. That same ipod that I was grooving to in the gym to get me through that ghastly workout, and had forgotten to turn off.

Hopefully, that’s about as dense as I get on lack of sleep and protein. And I’d like to think such moments rarely happen when I’m being mommy. I MAY have forgotten to change the baby’s diaper once…or twice, and by the time I remembered, it was heavy enough to break a toe if it dropped. But, I am otherwise a very responsible, resourceful, diligent parent who makes thoughtful decisions and doesn’t put her children in danger.

Daddy, on the other hand, apparently only skimmed the parenting manuals, even though I highlighted important pages and left the books near the toilet for him to read. There are things that Daddy does that push me to the edge of insanity and leave me wondering how this man ever cared for a pet, let alone himself, before I entered his life and saved him from certain self-destruction. Speaking of caring for pets, Daddy bought our oldest daughter a rabbit this past Easter (so cliche, and so wrong)…without telling me. So, when this rabbit got loose and our daughter was freaked out, crying, and afraid to catch the squirmy little beast, who do you think went outside in the cold damp air wearing pajamas, and with bare feet trying to avoid its little turds, to put the rabbit back in its cage? Mama to the rescue. Then there’s the time that Daddy was cold, so he turned up the thermostat to 90 degrees. With the baby asleep in her room and her door closed. Would he have taken the baby to the gym with him and put her in the sauna? Of course not. Then why would he basically create a sauna out of her bedroom?! Again, mama to the rescue. There’s the time when our daughter was a toddler, and Daddy was helping her after she’d gone potty. When he lifted her pants, he also lifted her legs off the floor…she flipped forward, and landed forehead first SMACK into the marble floor. When I got home, it was Daddy and some little Cyclops creature that greeted me at the door. I rest my case.

But, despite the above (the Lame List could be a lot longer, with numerous funny, frightening, or pitiful examples of Daddy mishaps), I happen to have a great husband and father to my babies. I can easily rattle off the reasons why I’m proud of my kids, besides their ability to entertain themselves while I eat, sleep or shower. And I can actually come up with some pretty cool stuff about Big Papa too. After working a full day, he does all the cooking, and grocery shopping, but lets me come up with the weekly menu. He encourages me to hang out with my mommy friends, and always says the same thing as I walk out the door, “Have fun, take your time, we’re fine.” He takes off work to attend every parent/teacher conference and school performance, volunteers at the school, and tells my daughter stories at bedtime about his childhood. He calls from work just to check in, and asks me to put the phone up to the baby’s ear. And after almost 10 years of marriage, he still reaches out to have his foot touching mine whenever we watch TV. Redemption.

This Lucky List, just like the Lame List, could also be a lot longer.

I’ve learned to let A LOT go. I don’t expect him to do things even close to the way I do them. That would be the “right way,” you know, because it’s my way. However, I do expect him to continue to ignore the parenting manuals in the bathroom. I came to this conclusion a while ago: as long as the kid is still alive at the end of Daddy’s shift, it’s all good (even if he fed her crackers and candy for dinner). And the things he does well count for major make-up points. I’m fond of saying that my oldest daughter is more help with the baby than my husband. But truth be told, I couldn’t do it without that man of mine. Besides, after two kids, he still thinks I’m the hottest chick around. That’s worth A LOT of make-up points.
