I was speaking on a panel last week and this other speaker, also a mom, suggested to the room how shitty it is (she didn't say shitty, BUT SHE THOUGHT IT) that I call myself the Worst Mom In The World and that we moms shouldn't label ourselves good or bad or whatever. She did faintly praise the label as "clever," but I know it's not really that clever.
That mom/speaker also said that you can learn anything you need to know about "tween" girls by going on to allykatzz.com, where the host girl says, "and it's a great place to visit because your mom is on making sure that no mean people post there!"
But I sure do have fun coming up with new ways to top my Bad-Mom-ness and here is the one today that remotely falls into that WMITW category:
I don't know what in the hell Charlotte and I are going to do without that amazing show Dance Moms tonight, for this Tuesday that falls between Season 3 and the much anticipated Season 3.5. We have eked every bit out of Season 3, with reunion shows, two-hour specials, staying up not just until the shows are over at 10 but until even later as we rewatch parts if we miss a swearword or a purse-swinging moment. We do rewatch shows from past seasons and have been happy to stumble upon one we have watched fewer than 6 times, because it felt almost fresh, but even those are played out now.
So what we will be doing tonight is this little game we made up, where I get to be the star, Abby Lee Miller, while Charlotte is Kenzie and Paige and Nia and if she has a lucky friend over, the friend gets to choose among the other characters we haven't already claimed. This is our wall. See how I make a mean little pyramid and get to berate the girls just like Abby does? Fun times, right?!
Ok, now that I took up your precious brain-space with that, and I know that there really isn't anything else to say about it, do use this phone space to tell me anything you would like for me to read and I will read it and answer if it is a question. Hello weirdos!
