Mean Mom Confessions

It’s time to get real: Moms can be pretty catty at times. When moms judge, they show no mercy. Here’s the lowdown on what mean moms really think. Are you guilty of these thoughts?

“When my husband sleeps past noon on the weekend and I’m running around the house doing chores, I make a lot of noise and let the kids be noisy too.” -- Fuzz*

“My daughter hates getting her nails clipped, and she runs away from me if I’m holding a nail clipper. So when she’s hanging all over me and jumping on me, I try to get a few minutes of ‘me’ time by holding on to the clippers so she stays away.” -- CC

“I totally judge when moms use their kids as an excuse for looking like a slob. Really? I have two and another one coming. I can still find 5 seconds to dig out clean leggings, put on mascara and look semi-presentable.” -- mem

“For people who comment about my post-baby weight, I’m dying to tell them, ‘Get your own butt to the gym and stop worrying about mine.” -- nola

“My friend’s wife says that having a dirty house and laundry everywhere means you are being a good mom. She’s a stay-at-home mom, and her house is so dirty I refuse to go there. Get it together!” -- kris

“My husband and I saw a mom sharing a Red Bull with her toddler -- I wanted to punch her.” -- Grey

“I judge everyone who posts ridiculous amounts of photos of their kids on Facebook. No one cares about your life drama; you’re not important enough for me to care what you’re doing every second of the day; and your kids are cute, but stop blowing up my newsfeed because you want to show them off.” -- hl8

“Honestly, I’d rather be a mean mom to another mom than mean to my child.” -- preg_a

“I won’t lend my sister-in-law any of our big baby gear, like our stroller, because I’m afraid they’ll get damaged. She doesn’t take very good care of things.” -- CityGirl

“When my kids want to play hide-and-seek and I’m too tired (most of the time), I offer to be the first to count, and I lie down on the couch and count very slowly, so I can have some rest time.”-- Shannon G.
