“Sweet Dreams” I ♥ Faces

I have never done a post for I ♥ Faces before, but I am a subscriber and I do check out their blog quite often.

This week when I read the theme, “Sweet Dreams”, I instantly had the perfect picture in mind.  Of course it is of my Monkey. You’re shocked I know. *grin*

He used to LOVE to jump around in his Johnny Jump Up, and as with his age (about 6 months), he was still falling asleep at the drop of a hat.  He was jumping one day and looking so cute, so I went to grab the camera.  As soon as I got back, approximately 42 seconds later, he was snoring soundly with his wittle chubby wubby face pressed up against the side.  Of course I did what any good mother would do.  I took a picture before I moved him into a more appropriate sleeping place.

Unamuzed Daily Photo Blog

She is unamused.  I am thinking her train of thought was going something like this… “would you get that damn thing out of my face so I can get back to my nap!” I left out the expletives.  LOL

I *am* a judgmental bitch…

I like to believe that I am not a judgmental person, but even according to my husband, I apparently am.  *shrug*

So it occurred to me today upon reading a blog of a fellow Mommy that I am judgmental about one thing for sure.  I am judgmental of other Mom’s.  All Mom’s, even my own.  From blog Mom’s, to Mom’s I know in person, to random Mom’s I see in the grocery store.  No Mom is safe.  Nope, not even YOU.

For example, I am judgmental of the Mom in the checkout line of the grocery store the other day.  Her adorable little boy was looking back and smiling at me and when she noticed, she SMACKED the crap out of the back of that kids head and said “How many times I got to tell you! Quit starin’ at that white lady!” <– Honest to Bob direct quote people.  Serious.

Like… I don’t even have the words.  But one thing that *did* cross my mind at that very moment?  Grabbing that kid and asking him to come live with me.  Ayup.  I should have done it too.  Bet he would have said yes.

So what did I do?  Cause I am a judgmental bitchy bitch?  I looked at Monkey who was sitting in the cart in front of me and said “Don’t you worry son, Mommy will NEVER treat you like that.  I promise.” And expecting her to turn around and kick my ass, I braced myself, and all she did was shift her weight to the other foot.  Like all obvious and ohmygod like.  You know what I mean?  And then I got walked out by a guy grocer in case she was waiting to run me over in the parking lot.  LOL

But I do judge other Mom’s.  I see things that they do and decide if those things are something I want to do or how to do it better or different.  And this is not to say that I don’t learn some great things from really terrific mothers, because I do!  Lots!  But regardless of whether they are good things or bad things, I judge them.  I judge whether or not they are things that I deem appropriate for my family and my parenting.  I weigh the positives and the negatives and make a decision either way.

I am sooooo judgmental about Moms.  And I am actually totally ok with this.  It makes me a better mother.  It forces me to try at think of all of the things that I wouldn’t think of if I wasn’t a judgmental crazy lady.

Call me what you want, but I am totally ok with it.  *nod*

Oh!

I saw this today because Molly aka: my FAVORITE photographer of all effing time posted it on her Facebook.  She rocks.  (You MUST check out her website Luminaire Images.  She is my inspiration.)

Ok…watch this because it totally made me cry.  I am such an emotional weenie lately.  (It’s pretty pathetic actually) but watch watch watch!!



Are you judgmental?  What is something that you have been judgmental about?  How did you/do you deal with it?

about moi…

Hi, my name is Cass. I am married to an amazing man who loves me unconditionally. I’m a stay at home mom to a rockin’ 2 year old boy who I call Monkey. I have an 12 year old step-daughter who lives in another state. We miss her daily. We also have two fur babies, Daisy and Jazz, who keep us on our toes. They are awesome!

I am a complete goofball, a photographer and a constant out loud thinker. I am a grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed Big Mama fumbling through life. Among other things, I battle PCOS causing infertility, Bi Polar, Anxiety and OCD.

Currently I am riding the fertility roller coaster in an attempt to make Monkey #2. This blog is about a little of everything. I hope you enjoy. Read at your own risk!
