I had a Monster Mommy Moment, which really shouldn't surprise you...

 MommyofaMonster

One of my favorite bloggers, Natalie from Mommy of a Monster & Twins, hosts a wonderful feature on her blog called "Monster Mommy Moments".  

In this feature, she invites moms to share their Monster Mommy Moments, in the hopes that, as moms, we can all learn from one another and find comfort in the fact that none of us are perfect.

Here's how she describes this feature:

"One of the reasons I decided to do this is so that you have a chance to meet some amazing women - some you might already know and some might be new to you - who are all willing to share stories that put them in a less than perfect light so that we can all learn and grow...together.

Sometimes other moms judge how we handle a situation or the decisions we make and conclude that we fail as a mom. It's important to remember we need to choose our own path, whatever it may be, and whatever works best for us."

It shouldn't surprise you, then, that I'm her featured Mommy this week because you all know I have plenty of Monster Mommy Moments!!

I hope you'll take a few minutes to visit Natalie's blog and read my guest post, where I share my candid thoughts on motherhood after a bewildering realization that it's not all it's chalked up to be.

And while you're over there, show her some love and click on that "follow" button!  She's a beautiful writer, who shares her thoughts so eloquently....and her quick wit and sarcasm is something you will definitely enjoy!

Great post momma. =) I of course can totally relate to you about the depression BS.
Sorry I have been MIA-been trying to settle, then had computer problems, then just stopped blogging! I'm all good now, and hope to be visiting more. =)

Can I just tell you I love reading your blog! So many blogs are about how wonderful and perfect it is being a mother. While this is true, there are times it ain't all sunshine and roses. And you post such honest things that make me feel "normal!" I couldn't agree more with you about my feelings towards motherhood. I also tried for a long time to conceive and had this romanticized idea of what it would be like once my husband and I had kids. And often feel so much guilt that I don't feel that way. And I only have one set of twins LOL! Thank you so much for being real and not being afraid what some people may think.

I loved it and your honesty. My mom just sent me a cloth diaper that belonged to me when I was a baby. She also sent my twin sister, hers. I was tell my twin, "Can you imagine having twins wearing cloth diapers?" That in itself must've been horrible for my mom.

I admire that you are able to embrace being a mother yet, also admitting that it's not rosy all the time.

LOL, this sounds like a fun meme!

Debbie said...

I refuse to believe you had a monster moment! But, I will go check it out.

You? Monster Mommy Moments? Surely you must mean Angelic Mommy Moments? Oh sorry, I'm still kinda loopy from some Versed I had the other day.

Headed over!
I don't believe someone who can make cakes as sweet as yours (hahahaha puntastic) can be a monster!

I've had tons of Monster Mommy Moments.

Mamarazzi said...

congrats on your feature!!

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
