The Mom club

Okay, so I haven't really blogged in like forever, but I read a few and love them all. The best thing about reading other people blogs is that you realize that in all reality, all Mom's are going through pretty much the same thing. No matter what their religion, race or how many kids we have it's like a universal language we all speak. Sort of like when you're in the grocery store and another woman's kid is throwing a tantrum, we nod or smile and move on because we have all been there. It a comradeship we have. It's like guys and sports, they can meet a total stranger any where and chat with no problem. Us Mom's are the same. No man can ever now how we feel or what it's like to carry a child inside of them. If we see another woman in line at the post office, or library, the grocery store or at the mall and she's holding the hand of a little kid, it's like we know we're in, we can strike up a conversation just like that. It one's of my favorite things about being a Mom. When I drop my daughter off a school everyday the parents are supposed to wait in the hallway until school actually starts and it is one of my favorite times of my day. Us Mom's gather and talk about nothing really and have a good time, I pity the few Dads who stand around us poor guys :) It our little Mom club and we love it! So if you're ever in need of a smile or feel like you've been kicked out of the club, read one of my favorite blogs and you'll be right back on the saddle.

your blog is great ruth! i have one, but keep it 'private' for now... it's SO scattered, i don't think anyone else would understand it! and, you're never too old to blog, it's like journaling when we were younger! i love it!! i too love that time at school, commiserating with the other moms and a few mr. mom's! we really need to hang out. i still need to see SATC, let's try to plan a night to do that! or an afternoon, whatever works best for you! take care and have a great day!!

I'm in! My wonderful son threw a complete tantrum at Anita's school and another mom helped me get us all to our car while I carried all 35 pounds of him football style with him kicking and screaming. I was mortified and this other mom just smiled and said hey I've been there. You are not to old to blog. I do daily - about my obsessively frugal lifestyle. Check it out at
