This post took an odd turn. It started as a post about coffee and then I went on Facebook. Stupid Facebook!
So I was on Facebook and a friend posted about a conversation she had with her daughter about school lunch. Apparently the little girl saw the lunch ladies making soup. Loooong story short this woman was basically posting about how awesome she is because she cooks with all whole, mostly organic ingredients, and her kids find it to be the best food ever and blah blah blah. I found her post really annoying.
Not to disparage this woman. She really does do some amazing things as a mom. First she has 4 kids all under 8 and she is still sane (a win in and of itself). Then there is the consistently awesome dinners. No school lunches for those kids! Fantastic chore charts, potty charts, elaborate birthday partes that are super crafty, PTA involvement, community involvement, etc., etc., etc…Plus she is always talking about how Lucky she is to have such a wonderful family. So yes, she really is as fantastic as her post about her self implies. It’s still annoying.
Unfortunately I have the bad luck of meeting some of the most AWESOME MOMS EVER!! Seriously! I know another woman who believes children should have an “experience field trip” at least once a week. Once a week they do something completely out of the box. You’d think by the time your oldest was 8 you would run out of new ideas but she doesn’t!
I can’t stand their awesomeness. It is exhausting! and depressing! Why can’t they just be “normal” !!!! ? Like me :)
Not only are the parents crazy amazing but these kids are super kids too. One little girl for her 5th birthday asked that her friends not give her toys. Instead she wanted everyone to buy gifts for, or give donations in the name of, a little boy from her church that was in the hospital with cancer. WTF !!! That was so beautiful it almost made me cry!!
I can’t stand it. I know I sound like a jerk.. But WOW! Really!? When I asked my son what he wanted for his 5th birthday he said, “EVERYTHING IN THE STORE MOMMY” Not sure if I am doing something wrong or these other people are just nuts!
Honestly, who has the energy to be so amazing? I certainly dont. Why the heck do they have brag about it so much too? They are making me feel like I am not doing enough! It stinks because most of the time I go along thinking I am doing a pretty good job and then BAM I see a Facebook post or whatever….KEEP IT TO YOURSELF! Cant they just be happy without sharing it with the normal population?
I have said this out loud to 1 or 2 other people and mostly I get a “you’re acting kind of weird” look, and the polite laugh. Also annoying by the way! So I am putting it out into the blogosphere. I can’t be alone in finding their awesomeness eye roll worthy.. Right?
