Well really, I did two bad things but the second isn't as important to me as the first. I had my first "anonymous" comment left on my blog and I immediately took it personally. Me? Take something personally? No way! Insert sarcasm. I automatically assumed because someone put an anonymous comment on my blog with a link to a story about lazy parents who let their kids go crazy eating, that I too was perceived as bad parent.
So, what did I do? I immediately called my mother and all of my closest friends. You know the ones who will always tell me the truth, and asked them if they thought I sucked at parenting. Every single one of them replied "no way, your great April." Still wasn't feeling better.
Then I thought about it for a little while and came to my senses. I chose to put my life on the internet and share things with people that aren't always pretty and once in a while I'm going to get called out on not doing the best job. The SAHM thing is my whole deal, so I take it personally when people think I am doing a bad job at it, or I am assuming that they think that. I take pride in the how Aidan is turning out. I am sure the link was meant to be helpful and not hurtful. I can't let silly comments bother me. I have way to much work to do trying to figure out how to get my kid to stop snacking. xoxoxoxo
