Moms= Sexy Superheros

I was walking down the street and heard someone say , "You're born alone you die alone." I got so angry wanted to stop and yell "What you crazy man? Are you nuts? Who is born alone? Wasn't your mom somewhere in this birth scenario? In fact I guarantee being born is as not alone as you can get you ungrateful person now go call your mom and apologise" Its just like moms are invisible and don't count at all.

There are signs all over.

Do mom's get recognized for 15-48 hours of labor on their child's birthday?
Are stretch marks the new sexy must have appearing in all the fashion magazines?
Are leaky nipples a status symbol?

Well why the hell not?

Since writing this blog I have heard such tales from the pit it would make your head spin.

Who gets so tired staying up with the baby they mistake their husband shaving cream for toothpaste?
Who wrangled, pantie liners, moths, condom wrappers and toilet soaked toothbrushes from their children's mouths?
Who improvised using a sanitary napkin and a pair of Speedos for protection for their baby's new pink dress when they ran out of diapers?

And what about my own mother? A great woman, very smart, lovely and very forgiving mother. Very very forgiving and so so great. So forgiving in fact that she would totally not hold a small comment made innocently on another's blog against her own daughter. Who is so secure in her daughters love and admiration that she would not get upset even if it stated something like "I know I just spent a week with my mother and it will take weeks to get over it." A mom who would laugh and throw back her arms and say "thats my silly daughter". Now that is a mom truly a mom worthy of praise.

So lets hear it for mothers(and my own wonderful forgiving mommy)! We are truly the superheros of the universe deserving of praise and lots of money and a few first class tickets to the Bahamas. Go Moms! (I'm so ashamed)

Colleen said...

Aw...ha ha ha. That's so funny. Great that your Mom has a good sense of humor about her.

Are leaky nipples a status symbol?

OMG - if they ever become status symbols? UCK. Could you imagine the high schools?!? ;o)

Vodka Mom said...

who would drive through a raging snowstorm and drag her daughter our of a tent of drinking teens? A mother. Who will go to the DUI checkpoint to get her daughter after she received an underage drinking citation along with 4 of her friends? Her mother. Withholds valuable information from said FATHER so he doesn't throw a hissy fit? A mother. Who would give her LIFE for her kid?

that's right. A mother.

April said...

That's the bitch of it all, huh? We want our credit, but still reserve the right to criticize our own moms :)

Heather said...

AMEN! You said it sister!

I think it's so cute that your Mom left a comment :)

Vered said...

I agree! I will never understand why a mom's work is taken for granted.

Maybe some day it will change.

Kate said...

I want to hear more about the speedo...

I thought I was bad mommy for running out of diapers and putting the twins in swim diapers for daycare - but I prefer the speedo story.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

You crack me up.
I'll add:
Who would call up her own 43 year old daughter and laugh ha ha ha, because now that 43 year old daughter has a daughter who just left for college and is too busy to call just like she was when she was in college, so now the daughter knows how her mother feels. Nanny nanny boo boo.
I hope my mother doesn't read your blog.
If so, I may also have some splaining to do!

I just recently admitted on my blog to having snooped in my parents' bedroom when I was a young girl. I had no idea my mom was still reading my blog. I heard about it the next day. "So, you were sneaking around my bedroom, aye??"

Brittany said...

Word, go us!

Tales From the Eurovan said...

You said it! Let's hear some more about this mom of yours. I don't think in fact I know my mom wouldn't handle that comment like your mom did! Take care, Julie

Mothers are the domestic soldiers of the world. The daily combat, emotional torture, physical endurance should be recognized.

Brooke said...

Annie said...

Moms are awesome. No question.

Posts like this, however, make me terrified to be one.

MamaGeek said...

A. Freaking. Men.

Err I mean.

A. Freaking. WOMEN.

Veronica said...

Yay for mothers!

Now, pet me and hold my hand as my partner goes back to work after 6 weeks home and suddenly forgets how hard it is to be home alone with short people.

Meg said...

I can't believe your mom not only reads your blog, but your comments on other blogs!! That's way cool as my mom doesn't even know how to turn on a computer.

I'm glad she's forgiving, but still--I'd be careful.

Kmommy said...

HaHa!! Moms ARE superheros! :)

Chimera said...

I feel, slightly, that you are overcompensating. Just an inny meeny mini bikini bit over guiliting.
I say you might as well transfer the guilt to the twit on whose blog you commented in the first place.
Cuz xxxx

the teach said...

Gee, okay, okay Yea! MOMs. You guys are the new sexy!! :)

Suzie said...

You're right! Its all Chimera's fault!
