Thank you Babble, for sharing this. I simply had to do the same and pass along to all you out there. Especially Newbie Moms. And that means all you Empowered Moms out there (Newbie or not)!
To all you Newbie-Moms. Be afraid. Of all the Moms out there who have it ‘all figured out’. Because, guess what? They don’t. And if they say they do, they’re lying.
Here’s some of the Moms you, no doubt, will come in contact with. A a few tips to identify the species…. good luck on your wild-life hunting.
Spawned on anonymous internet message boards, the Sanctimommy thinks she’s got it all figured out — and she’s pretty sure you don’t. Whatever her parenting beliefs and behaviors may be, they’re better than yours, and she’s sure to let you know it. Steer clear if you’re feeling thin-skinned.
2. TIGER MOM
To the Tiger Mom, childhood is about work now, play later. She takes her kids’ futures seriously and won’t let anything get in the way. Her kids are definitely going to be more successful than yours. If the Tiger Mom’s kids are busy working, she could be a good option for socializing … as long as you don’t mind the sound of the whip cracking in the background.
3: POWER MOM
Power Mom’s into success, too — her own. If you see her around, she’s likely to be dashing in and out on her way to something much more important than the likes of you. Is she proud about her Very Important Position or does she wish she could just chill out with the coffee moms after drop off? Probably both. Don’t be offended if she breaks plans; it’s not personal.
