Her Bad Mother

I am totally a mommy. I don't give a f*** if that bothers some people. I'm a mommy, and I blog, and if someone can't see the genius in that then whatevs.

(LOVE your blog!)

Very well said. I'm always up for a conversation about semantics. I should clarify, though, because I'm one of the people who said I didn't think PunditMom's blog (which I also read regularly and really like) is a mommy blog. I think I write a mommy blog. By that I mean I intentionally write mostly about my kids, mostly for the audience I'm related to, and somewhat superficially, and I don't mean that in a pejorative way.

But your point about TMBG (they now write kid albums; who calls them "Daddy Musicians"?) is excellent. I may have to rethink the whole thing!

Unfit Mother

Oh, no offense taken, PM! I agree ours is a hard reputation to prove serious. But someone will always tag us with an unsavory label. I figure I might as well embrace the semantics and reshape the perceptions of others. (I big heart PunditMom blog =;?}

PunditMom

Oh, I wasn't trying to offend. All of us have things to say that are worthwhile. Writing about our children is a worthwhile and great thing. I write about PunditGirl all the time. I was just trying to say that I think many of us get a bad rap. I've got plenty of sweats (tho' as part of my self-delusion, I like to call them yoga pants!).

This IS cheaper than therapy. I just think that the mainstream media could find something a little more respectful to call those of us who write about motherhood.
