My Mommy Style!!

I have had this blog in my head for a few days so I thought I would set it out there. Sometimes I feel like I am out in right field a lot of times as a mother and let me tell you why...
  • I use disposable diapers and have no desire to use cloth to me that was so 1970!!
  • I feed my kids non organic processed cheese and other foods etc and I don't have the $ to do otherwise!!
  • I don't wear my babies!!! I carry them around in their car seats attached to their stroller and it works out just fine for me!!!
  • I spray my kids with sunscreen that is on a bad list!!!
  • I don't believe in the cry it out method. And my kids sleep just fine in the night.
  • I love to breastfeed and would still do it if my kids hadn't cut me off.
  • I want more kids even though my pregnancies are horrible. I love my kids!!! People look at me like I am crazy when I say I want 4
  • I am not going to put my kids in school like probably ever!! Public school and me do not mix. And have you seen the rates for even just 2 days of moms day out or preschool. No thanks. I will keep them with me!!!
  • We have cable television and my kids watch tv!!! On Demand is my fav feature and we watch shows a lot!!
  • My house is lived in. There is dog hair and food on the floor most of the time and laundry seems to never be folded but I snuggle and play with my kids in lieu of doing these things
For the longest time I felt like I was alone in my mothering because of these things. But I have found people that I connect with and a church that I love now and that has helped a lot. I realize that I can be that different mommy and it doesn't bother me a bit. Well at least most of the time!!!! Okay now I feel better. Thanks for listening!!!

Good for you! We sound a lot alike! Can I ask you what you mean by Mother's Day Out?

Lynnette said...

Moms Day Out is usually a 2 or 3 day morning program offered at churches. The one right by us is 130 a month just for 2 days!!

Bonnie said...

Oh yeah I know what Mother's Day Out is. I was wondering what your concerns were with it.

Lynnette said...

No concerns just out of our budget right now!

I want 6, so I get *that look* a lot too ;)

I never could do the "wearing" my baby thing. They hated slings when I tried them, and I was never comfy. I usually just learned to do every thing one handed while I toted a baby on the boob ;) hahaha

I loved the cloth diapers with Raechel. They were awesome, snapped and had liners, etc. Not with my first three, I used the old kind with pins, and hated them. But I couldn't afford disposables, only sometimes.

We eat processed food, but I would like to stop eating as much! :)

This was a great post!
