A while back I had a good friend share my blog link on her facebook page. A bit of a firestorm was created when one of her friends made the comment that although she thought I was funny, she was totally turned off by the fact that I had recently had plastic surgery. She said she needed a “Real” mom’s blog to read. Apparently if I had the time and resources to have plastic surgery that I am not the one raising my children and in her eyes I was not a “Real” mom.
Of course this totally pissed me off cause I am not real good at brushing things like this off. The replies back to her comments backed up my feelings on the whole REAL mom thing. I am sure now that she thinks about it, she hastily judged me and the type of mother I am by my choice of having plastic surgery.
I get that. By choosing to be very open about my plastic surgery choice, I open myself up to people like this. I am ok with it. I do not regret being open about my choices. I had hoped that with being up front about it all it would help someone out there that has been contemplating plastic surgery. From the responses I have received, I am sure it has helped many people.
Through this I have had a chance to sit back and really look at all the DIFFERENT types of mothers that I am friends with. I have friends that homeschool their children, some send their kids to private school, some public school, some feed their kids all organic, some don’t, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, a mixture of both, baby wearing, co sleeping, crunchy granola, Ferber method, vaccine giving, vaccine delaying, home birthing, csection having, epidural wanting, circumcision, non circumcision, time out, spanking, soft spoken, crazy yelling, protected sex, NO SEX, hand me downs, boutique only, thrift shopping, into fitness, fine with fatass, real boobs, fake boobs, stay at home, gotta work, single, divorced, love men, love women…
No matter our differences we all have a few things in common: we are all REAL moms and we all REALLY love our children. Even you – yes you – the one who based my mothering on the realness of my breast. You my friend can KISS MY REAL TIGHT ASS.
Stay wild bitches!
