I'm One of THOSE Crappy Moms Too!

You may have seen it buzzing around the mom blogs... the crappy mom posts! After dealing with the unnecessary drama of the "mommy wars", Jen from Life with Levi wrote a blog post on all the ways she's a crappy mom and asked other moms to share. So I'm going to share too! 

  • Noah was formula fed!
  • Noah was in disposable diapers until he was 7 months old!
  • I still sometimes put disposables on Isaac just because! 
  • I let Noah watch entirely too much tv.
  • My 10 month old has had a taste of ice cream! :0 
  • I let both my boy sleep on their belly as newborns. 
  • I've let both my boys cry for a few minutes at a time before they fell asleep. 
  • Noah is super tall but I kept him rear-facing until he was 2 years old and outgrew the rear-facing limits. I'm sure he'd rather have a broke leg than a broke neck if anything ever happened. 
  • We'll also keep Isaac rear-facing until he reaches the limits of the car seat.
  • I suck at coming up with creative activities and fun stuff for the kids and I to do. 
  • I never co-slept with Noah and only did for about 4 months with Isaac. I like sleeping with my hubby better :) 
Wanna know what else I do though? I kiss boo-boos, and give hugs, fix meals and play trains. My kids know they have a mommy and daddy who love them and will always be there for them. 

So let's squash the mommy wars and be confident in ourselves and be willing to accept those who are different from us and do things differently! Because we're all just trying to do our best. 

Don't they look like they have the most crappy mom ever? ;) 


  1. Keeping them rear facing isn't crappy at all-that's the best thing you could do for them. Your boys are super cute and I'm sure they think you're amazing!

    1. Lol I know... There was a hint of sarcasm in the carseat ones hehe.

  2. LOVE! We all have our own ways, and they all work! What works for one family does not for the next! As long as our kids are happy and healthy we are doing the best we can! I'd say you are a great Mama!

  3. And you're a great mom because ultimately you love your kids and try to do what's best for them! Oh, and I prefer to have the bed for me and my hubby too :) (Not that I'm against co-sleeping...but my baby was...we tried it but he just prefers his crib and that was fine with us :)
