So I wrote this little post, Dear Know-It-All People Without Kids, Shut the %$#@ Up and then the world exploded. It did. People got all pissed. I’m sure a waitress was denied a tip somewhere and I got blamed for the current economic crisis.
Certain childless folks took the post very personally even though I specifically addressed the know-it-all types. It didn’t stop there, the post also offended moms too. Apparently I’m the sole “reason that people hate parents” according to Mommyish.com. Really? Me? And here my guidance counselor thought I’d never amount to much.
To know me personally or know my blog is to know that I am against wars of the female variety entirely but I can dish a healthy helping of snark now and again. I don’t hate childless people – why should I? Why should anyone? I believe making the choice to remain childless is both personal and way too often misunderstood.
Let me get a few things straight: Kids can be annoying. Kids don’t belong everywhere (bars, fancy restaurants, etc.). I am not superior. I am not a hater.
I am just a regular mom with a regular blog with two regular kids who is tired of regularly being told what do by know-it-all people. To be a mom is to understand that feeling. So I wrote a tongue in cheek post about it. Who cares? It was one of at least 13,154 snarky posts written that day that got people talking.
And here it’s only Monday.
