Childbirth in the US: The Most Expensive Worldwide

by RealMomofNJ on July 01, 2013 in Bitching, Random Info

I haven’t posted in ages because of various reasons, but an article in the New York Times inspired me. Did you read American Way of Birth, Costliest in the World? Please do, if you haven’t. It’s all about how American births are ridiculously and unnecessarily expensive. I think it’s just another example of how in the US, everything is…

Public Shaming and Bullying Mixed Messages

by RealMomofNJ on June 05, 2013 in Bitching

It seems like there are articles and news stories every day about some horrible parent who has publicly shamed their kid. Sometimes the shaming seems reasonable and harmless, other times it is outrageous and potentially traumatizing. Regardless, even perceived public shaming often elicits extreme and immediate backlash and is commonly considered a form of bullying. And public opinion about it…

Normal Then, Luxury Now

by RealMomofNJ on April 30, 2013 in Bitching

Yesterday morning I was up ass early because the fucking cat was meowing outside my door for no reason at 530am. So, I decided to make good use of the time and actually take a shower before work. Because the kids wouldn’t be up until at least 7am, I was able to enjoy my shower instead of rush though…

One Like Does Not Equal One Prayer, Part II: My Heart Breaks for Boston

by RealMomofNJ on April 16, 2013 in Bitching

I’ll try to keep my rant to a minimum, but here we go with the “One like equals one prayer!” bullshit, again.

My heart breaks for Boston. The bombings yesterday were horrible. But you know what else is horrible? How the Internet “bands together” by mass-posting gory photos, inspirational quotes, and pictures of serene things like candles as some kind of tribute…

My Leaving Problem

by RealMomofNJ on March 22, 2013 in Bitching, Humor, Mom Stuff

Hi, my name is Sam, and I have a leaving problem.

I didn’t realize I had it until my husband finally snapped and told me. It was his day to take the kids to day care. We were going through the morning routine: wake up the kids, get them dressed, feed them breakfast, pack lunches and snacks, pack diapers/extra clothes/random…

Daylight Savings: The Literal Time Suck

by RealMomofNJ on March 11, 2013 in Bitching

Thank God for daylight savings! I mean, who wouldn’t be excited for a day when we are robbed of an entire hour of sleep (without it being for the worthy reason of going to a new time zone for vacation), and eff up our kids’ body clocks and our family’s schedules for a week or two?

Ugh. Anyone else feel…

Dammit, Does Everything Have to Be Fun?!

by RealMomofNJ on March 04, 2013 in Bitching

I was dicking around on Pinterest when I saw a link to a list entitled, “Tips to making brushing teeth for fun for kids!” Not only did the post provide “fun” ideas for tooth brushing for kids, but it hocked a singing toothbrush that plays a song by British boy band One Direction.

My first thought was a slightly less…
