Proud to be #thatmom

What the hell does that even mean?? Well, apparently it's a thing.

I ran into an old friend the other day who recently became a mommy. I told her how much I LOVE all the baby spam of her sweet newborn. I encouraged her to post more (because who doesn't love a squishy baby spam filled IG feed?).  She told me she was trying not to overdue it because she didn't want to be that mom

I'm sorry, what? 

That mom.

Like it's disgusting to be crazy madly in love with your new baby and spam all your social media accounts with photos of the child you grew inside your womb.

You know what's disgusting?

Honey Boo Boo.

A morbidly obese family running around with their fupa's hanging out and having affairs with their kids.

Society loves that family and they sure as hell aren't embarrassed to share their trashiness all over national television. 

But some new momma's are afraid to share too many pictures on social media of their precious new baby?? All out of fear of being labeled that mom. What the hell is wrong with this picture??

If people would rather see the latest photos of Honey Boo Boo chowing down on a cheeseburger rather than see your adorable baby photos than that's on them. 

Not you, new mommy.

You continue to take hundreds of pictures a day of your sweet little baby; sleeping, eating, smiling, drooling and sleeping some more. And while your at it, throw in some videos too, as many as you damn well please. 

And you post these pictures. You post them all damn day long if you want. Wear the title "that mom," loud and proud. 

Because listen, I'd much rather see photos of your precious angel than read about the Duggar brother molesting  his little sister. 

And quite frankly, society should too.

I love this!! It's so can never have or post too many pictures of a newborn squishy babe! Your outlook is fantastic.


I couldn't agree more! Our society has gone to $h!t and everyone is accepting it. Well not everyone, because my husband and I are not and I know that you aren't either! Great post doll!
