Nice title…right? Well let’s face facts it is true. There are some wicked women out there and (shudder) some are even moms! Until I recently had my second child…I had sort of forgotten about the bitch factor that exists in Mommyland. I have lived in the area for 12 years, have two children and, thankfully, a large circle of friends that I cherish. I haven’t much thought about the ruthless shrews that made my life miserable when I was a new mom. While woman everywhere can be nasty and mean (as can men) I am specifically talking about bitchy moms with young children.
You know the ones that I am talking about. They glide into every kiddie class with the greatest of ease. They smile at their posse, exchange pleasantries with the instructor and often don’t give a newbie even a glance. I first met these types of women when I had my daughter six years ago. It was the strangest feeling…even though I was able to easily make friends in high school, college and then at the work place these mommy bitches weren’t having it. Man…they staked their claim at the park, playgroup, mall play areas and even the damn grocery store.
I want to first start off by saying that this blog is NOT meant to bash working mothers. I have the greatest respect for all mothers. We all have our challenges and we are ALL doing the best we can to raise kind, decent, loving, intelligent and thoughtful human beings who will one day eat their vegetables, avoid doing bodily harm to their siblings and listen to us. Hey…dare to dream.
This venom filled blog goes out to those people who still truly believe that stay-at-home moms don’t work. Watch out…I have a lot to say!
Over the weekend our family had one of the best days ever (or "boss-est" day, as my son put it) at the spring season opening of The Adventure Park At Sandy Springs Friends School. Designed by Swiss alpine mountaineers, The Adventure Park stretches over 5 wooded acres of the 140 acre campus of the Sandy Spring Friends School and is the largest aerial forest park in North America. What is an aerial forest park? Think Ewok village crossed with a circus trapeze and you'll begin to get an idea of the fun in store high-up in the trees. Each course has zip-lines (usually at the end) but is comprised mostly of various configurations of cable, wood, and rope that form bridges, tight-ropes, and climbing challenges in between over 150 unique tree platforms.
