If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
Maybe you experienced this throughout your day too…it’s full of some people that criticize you and bring you down…point out everything you’re doing wrong.
I gotta admit it has taken me hours to get over a rough start to my day. Not bad in the whole scheme of things, but my son literally got sick as I was walking out the door, my nanny had to peel him off of me so I could get to work. So naturally running late and pulled out a little too quick out of my neighborhood. I admit it was my fault.
And the driver I somewhat cut off would not let me forget it. She was gesturing, I won't go into detail cause well you know, and she was driving a minivan too. I wanted to roll down my window and say "hey, you and me, we are fellow minivan drivers so were on the same team!"
Why is it that when that happens you always end up going the same route, keep pulling up next to that person pretending like you don’t see them. She was being kind of a Mully, that’s my term for a mom-bully.
Then, I got this note from Kerri on my Facebook page. she’s the opposite of a Mully.
She wrote: “Mom's let us always hold one another UP instead of tearing one another (and one another's kids) down”
Exactly my point, okay so I think we have a new term, one of those friends that encourages you and makes you feel better even when you mess up. She’s one of those friends that will show up on the sidelines when you’re doing one of those breast cancer walks or runs.
Let’s call her a "RaRa Mama." Gotta add that one to the lingo we love blog. Tell me about a "RaRa Mama" in your life.
