I've come to realize that I think I'm alone in this mom world.This isn't a pity party post, don't worry. It's pretty eye opening.I bought this book recently; I've been waiting for this book to come out since I first heard it had been written, because it was written by a real-life-humor mom blogger, like me. I've been a big fan of hers since I started blogging, and to find out she wrote a book... holy crap, awesomesauce! So, I bought it last week. (If you've been with me for a while, you know that I don't usually name people or books when I do posts like this, because I don't want to drive traffic to my site that was intended for someone else... plus, I prefer to be honest, anonymously.)Excuse me while I scream about theseother moms... courtesy of parentsconnect.comYes, the book is funny as hell. Yes, the book is very honest about motherhood, and how it isn't all rainbows and unicorns like most mom books tell you. Yes, the book is a great addition to my bookshelf, and something I may read again when I have those horrible mom days.But, yes, the book opened my eyes in a way I never thought possible, and made me feel completely alone.Am I the only mom anymore who gives a shit?

Has that completely gone out of the window nowadays in favor of this "brutally honest real mom" bullshit?Yes, I called it bullshit, which sucks, because I have prided myself on how my blog is a brutally honest real mom blog. I'm wondering if I have to change everything now because a few moms who don't give a shit have gotten together and said, "Hey, it's okay to not give a shit, because that's being a 'real mom' We will not strive to be our best now that we're 'just moms' so, please, join us in this movement of not giving a shit, either."Holy crap this pisses me off. I started to wonder if I was the only mom out there who actually tries anymore, and when I fall short, yes, share it with my readers because that's my
