I'm Okay with Being the Mean Mom

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor's Note: Did you dread being called a Mean Mom? Thinking back to the first time my son told me I was mean, I knew I dreaded the moment but it made me laugh when it finally happened. Multitasking Mumma was recently dubbed the Mean Mom, but she's okay with it. Are you? -Jenna

Mean Mom:

Hearing bedtime and brush your teeth, pajamas and no more treats, puts me in the mean category and that, my love, is okay.

I am here to follow through, protect you, guide you, and make sure you are well. I am here to make sure the surfaces you jump off of aren’t too high, the candy you eat is just enough, and the fridge gets closed every time.

When you grow up I know you will see I wasn’t mean.
