I have coined a new term today. In the past I have used "Momarazzi’s" and "Mompetitors," but now there is Mom Bully’s or what I call the "mully’s." Learning that in my life sometimes you gotta choose to ignore the "Mully's."
You know when someone says something to you and doesn’t sit well, it makes you wonder if that was that nice or nasty?
Maybe you’ve experienced this too, that bullying doesn’t just happen at school with your kids but that it happens to adults too, especially mothers.
I like to be silly in my style of mothering.
There’s the "Momaraazi’s" are the ones with the big cameras and telephoto lenses at soccer games that are on the field as if they were a ref (that’s somewhat me).
There’s the "Mompeditors" which are constantly one upping you on what their child is doing that’s far superior to yours.
Now I’m coming up with a new one. The Mom-Bully and we’ll call her the “Mully”.
Definition of a "Mully": one that appears to be perfect; exaggerates the capability of her precious children, therby making you feel bad about yourself.
Dealing with a "Mully" in my life and I haven’t figured out the exact right way to handle it. There’s always the old standby: “I’m rubber your glue and whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks onto you.”
That’s pretty childish though. Just working on not letting what others say bother me, it’s a struggle I have. Maybe you too?
What I do know is what God says about me and you. He is enthralled with your beauty and rejoices over you with singing.
That’s better than the I’m rubber your glue thing. Share your thoughts here or on Facebook.
