As a mother, especially a first-time mom, you feel judged. Constantly. Sometimes people are really judging you, other times it’s just in your head. Being a mom is a tough job without judging, so I try not to. I really do but there are somethings that I simply cannot accept. Yelling, physical violence, none of that is acceptable and I will judge you for it. Giving your baby (or even your toddler) Coca-Cola is also not acceptable. Everyone knows how bad it is. It’s bad enough for us adults, so why give it to a small kid? Something else that I have a hard time accepting is beauty pageants. I always feel like mom (or dad) are very frustrated and put all their hopes on their child winning. This poster makes me cringe!
Hold it I’m about to drop off
Let me tell you my last thought
And so Emily Haines sings… but yes, let me tell you my last thought: I decided to compile all the stuff I wrote on my blogs for the last 11 years. Yes, I’m old and that’s how long I’ve been around. I’ve had several blogs (one quite successful, people recognized me on the street!) and thought it would be a good idea to throw it all together in one place. I’m still collecting everything and editing (I used to write in portuguese, so I’m translating) but you can already read some of my old stuff.
When I’m bored
I send vibrations
In your direction
From the satellite mind
And I want to update this on a regular basis, so I’m not going to send vibrations in your direction but I’ll send blog posts. So if I don’t update this, please demand it from me.
