Don’t Talk About My Moms Like That
From time to time my mother appears in stories here and it’s one of the few times that people react negatively to anything posted here. While I understand why there is some negativity I feel like I need to step up and defend my mother in this case. If you only know my mother from reading this blog you might think that she’s not a good person but that’s not true at all. Don’t let the hands off parenting throw you off she’s did the best she could with what she had and I’m grateful for all of it. Consider the circumstances, I was born when she was 16 and she was a divorced single mother of three by 22. I think that anything short of drowning us in the tub was acceptable parenting.
I have no resentment or anger towards her, so you shouldn’t either. It’s all ok now.
