Bad Moms United ;-) Need a drink? Win 1 with me and movie tickets for 3 friends

So, I’ve just watched Bad Moms and wanted to give it a standing ovation (despite it’s sometimes saccharine sweet American plot “twists”). I received a mail today from another mother who said that she loves the blog, but that sometimes my posts make her feel like she doesn’t have her “shit sorted.” Yes, I said SHIT. And mine is OFTEN not sorted 🙂 Ladies (and I assume it’s mostly moms reading this, so my humble apologies if you have more testosterone than my average reader), let’s NOT kid ourselves.

Motherhood is NOT for sissies. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions – constantly questioning your own judgment, constantly being subjected to others’ judgment and feeling inadequate. BUT, it’s also the most (and I wish I could BOLD type, Italic and underline MOST … MOST !!!!) amazing thing you could ever do. I thank God every day for the miracle of being able to bring forth a life and raise a little person (or 2 or 3 or 4 in my sister-in-law’s case).

I also thank God for a glass of wine (or 2 or 3 or 4 in my own case at the end of a particularly grueling suicide hour – in which case, I’ll pump and dump ,of course!) and for the fact that I have a wonderful sisterhood of mom-friends. So… just because I’m curious as to who my actual blog readers are, I’d like to invite you and 3 of your besties to a movie at the V&A Waterfront and then drinks on me and a good chat. If you’re in Jozi or Durban, we’ll make a plan too. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me the best and worst thing about being a mom. Easy enough? Come on, let it out and come have fun. Let’s all be “Bad Moms” together!

Love and Light,

Jo-Ann

    Love this post. Answering your question is quite tough. I’d say the worst thing is probably not having as much time to yourself and not being able to always participate in things your single friends do. The best thing about being a parent is EVERYTHING. I have never experienced such pure joy until I became a mom. Seeing my baby smile and hearing him call me “Mama” is priceless

    Nothing can prepare one for motherhood for shizzle with a swizzle ? Our son will be 15 and I have no idea how I am going to handle what’s coming my way? I guess taking it one day at a time and take a chill from being a stalker mom. I’m also a very busy aunty and loving every moment watching the pump and dumps around me ?? Never had a chance to be a “Bad Mom” in my day aai ??Really enjoying being around my Sussies and their bundles of joys embracing the ups and downs with them and would not change it for the world?? BEST THING….So happy we raised a fun loving happy son WORST THING….have to lay off the stalker mom tendencies ?

    The best thing about being a mom, is being able to watch them grow into such amazing human beings, being there for them, catching every tear, healing every scratch with a kiss….knowing that it does not matter what, they will always come to me to comfort them, the laughter they bring about, they keep you young at heart. The worst thing about being a mother though is the fact that you are constantly second guessing your actions, how you raise them, how you discipline them, what you feed them, how much time you spend with them, the list is endless…you worry so much, every second of every day I worry not knowing whether I have done everything I could for them. Then off course there is this new worry on my list, I have just come to realize that my 11 year old daughter only have 7 years of school left, and that means that she only have 7 years left to be under my roof. I am not worried of the person she will become, I know she will be a super amazing woman one day, but I am scared of that empty nest syndrome, it is quite frightening, how will I cope without being around her every day, not putting her to bed at night, not taking her to school, not being so involved anymore. So yes and I will repeat myself, for me the worst thing about parenting is the worry….it is a full time job, worrying whether I am fulfilling my job as this mighty queen looking after this priceless angels entrusted to me by God.

    My best thing about being a mom is knowing that I brought this precious cargo into the world (six times I might add..!) Not a day goes by without my heart sending out a thank you for being chosen to guide these fragile humans being on their journey. The worst is knowing that someday they’ll have to leave the nest and I no longer get to shelter them.. :(. That being said, its always good to have a time out and drinks at the Waterfront sounds fan,,frickin’….tabulous!

    Love your post and definitely agree with you on the 2, 3, 4 glasses of wine 🙂 that is the only thing that keeps you sane, as a working mom! My little man is 7 months old and it’s been quite an adjustment after he was born…. not having your own time, putting him first, your whole world revolves around your child, your sleep, your bath and eat time, in between the washing, dishes, making food at night and trying to get in a little bit of sleep, whilst also trying to get in some exercising but also not wanting him to be with anyone else than you. Lots of changes and adapting but i wouldn’t change it for the world. The best thing about being a mom, is seeing every day your own little human being that was created in your womb and seeing so much of yourself in that little personality. The smiles, talks and laugh, all the love and kisses. the worst thing for me is not being able to take your child with every where you go 🙂 I try to take him with as much as possible but the places are not always child friendly!

    A hard question actually.
    My worst moments are definitely allowing my kids to make mistakes / experience heartache for the sake of living and learning.
    There are so many good parenting moments.
    Like when my children do things that they should get disciplined for and I need to stifle my laughter
    Or when they imitate you and give you something you seriously need to reflect on
    Or the feeling of complete achievement because you got a tough cookie to sleep and can finally get some me time ?
    In a nutshell it would be the endless joy they bring everyday

    The BEST thing about being a mom is watching your kids grow into their own chatacters/personality and seeing them flower before your eyes and who doesnt just feel warm and fuzzy when receiving those everyday cuddles of joy and love.

    The WORSE thing about being a mom is well… holding back, watching them fall, feeling helpless at times when your advice is just not food enough to heal their little hearts and knowing that you have to leave them to fight their own battles (sometimes) ?

    I Love your blog, it is always so honest and you just live your life to the fullest. My little boy is 16 months old, the best ever is literally when Gabriel wraps his arms around me and give me wet kisses, i love him dearly and i see that in his own innocent mind how he gives love. The best thing and gift ever. The worst thing for me is, my hubby is a paramedic (that is not the bad thing), so he works night shifts, and sometimes juggling work, personal life and being a mommy is getting to me. I just sometimes want to get home, have a glass of wine and not worry about cooking, cleaning and all the other things.

    I want to state that the worst part of being a mother is an adjustment from my first child to my second child as each child have a different routine and behavior. I don’t know if you experienced it but we as mothers has a different special love for each child. My worst part is also to adjust to parenting skills as I have a toddler who sometimes want to be in-control of situations and I had to get him to compromise and understand which sometimes is difficult. I also rush and hurry when it comes to myself so I have hardly time for myself which I neglect that part. My overall experienced of being a mom is to build a relationship with each child. I’m blessed by the almighty who gave me the opportunity to experience every development stage of my children, from being a new born until a toddler. It is so amazing to see them crawling,walking and start talking. I love being around my children and spending time with them.

    I really love your blog….. so motivational and straight to the point. Everyday life in a Moms world. I left my corporate environment to be at home with our little loves…what a challenge never had I expected to multitask in a manner that even my 2 and 4year old will actually correct me on my grammar. I thought I can mix my home language( wat Afrikaans is) with there proper English which I forgot I schooled them with. I thought I’m in my comfort zone only to be challenged by a 2 and 4 year old. Everyday I learn from them. I was breastfeeding my kids all up to 18months expressing was like a daily routine and up up till today my Kids stil wanna hang or touch my boobs which I allow them to do offcourse it stays our little secret at home…. so on wknds when hubby’s around they will vividly browse or touch whenever looks away….. I know I have to change our habits, but how could I ĺooking into those brown and blue eyes of mine….

    Thanks for always being so honest in your blog posts. I love them! I’m a new mom to a 4 month old little man. On top of that I also started a new job when he was 3 months old, which involves lots of travel. So it’s been rough. For me, the hardest thing about being a mom is constantly questioning my decisions and how they will impact him. Not to mention the judgement from just about everyone. The best? That’s easy. It’s his beautiful smile whenever he’s woken from a nap and sees me. Best feeling ever!

    This sounds great! The best and worst thing about being a mom for me is actually the same thing, being needed all the time, and by all the time, I mean ALL THE TIME, when you’re in the shower, on the loo, trying to cook dinner or sleep. It it the most precious thing about motherhood, that bond that only you and your little one share because you housed them for many months and it was just you and baby and it is oh so sweet when “Mommy” in their safe place and the one who makes it all better, I love being the one to kiss it better and make my baby happy again. But… it the wee hours of the morning when your little one is climbing on your head calling “mummy” and all you can think is “can you please go to sleep little honey, mummy must be up at 4am to catch a flight to JHB for work” it is quite bad. With that being said, I would take a BAZILLION (is that even a number?) of those nights just to have my baby girl safe and healthy with me.

    I have been a mom now since i was 25years old. (my daughter is 12years old now) Its a very long & heart breaking story but never the less i did it. As you know having a baby out of wedlock is huge issue with parents. Every one was against my decision to have my baby, some said have an abortion, some said give it up. I refused, i stood firm on my decision to have my daughter by myself. The best decision was to cut everyone out of my mind space & take a leap of faith & have my baby. I was deserted by my family & some friends. Experiencing being a mom, & a single mom was tough. We ate together, we slept together, we cried together. Some day, Bread & butter was the only thing i could afford for myself somedays. Milk was pricey & so was nappies, but i was intent on giving my baby the best life could offer.. My daughter became & is still best friend. A few years later i met a beautiful Capetonian guy (hence i live in CPT now from JHB). We got married & have a son together. Making the decision to be on my own, left me to be on my own all the time with just my hubby & my children. I have not met goods friend i can trust in since then but my life is so amazing because the love of my husband & my children make up for the lack of friends & family too. I would do it all over again. I never go out on my own only with my kids & my hubby. I almost feel guilty to leave them because we are so close. I Love the time i have with them & they teach in everyday to be a better human being. Being called mum, cannot compare to anything in life, that i have experienced thus far. Wow Jo anne, this is the first time in ages since i have spoken out about this experience, reminds me of how far i have come.

    Love all your posts and your ability to make motherhood and having career look so easy. As a mother you know it is not always easy whether you are a celebrity or not, however you do it with such grace and poise. Would really love to meet you and be able to experience all that awesomeness!,

    I believe the best thing about being a mom is that the Lord blessed and chose me to be our son’s mom. I am amazed every time when I hold or kiss him and at times can’t believe he is mine :-). I thank the Lord daily for trusting me with our precious gift and for allowing me the ability to experience such an amazing joy and unconditional Love. It has been an amazing journey being a mom from the time we found our I was pregnant to date and he is already 7 months old and growing too fast. The worst thing at this stage about being a mom is when he is sick or has to be hospitalized. The feeling of utter hopelessness and not knowing what to do or how to make it better and having to depend and trust someone else to make my son 100% again is very difficult. However his smile and laughter makes it all worthwhile.

    Always love your posts. You seriously such an inspiration, even when you are telling us that you do not have your SHIT together. Most days I feel like I am losing my SHIT! I am losing it over trying to be a good mother and maintain the social standard of “a working mom” so that means still cooking cleaning and taking care of a baby after a long day at work. I wouldn’t trade my life for anything and I love my son to bits. I just wish that I could have one day where everything falls into place. My son started walking recently so I was taking a picture of him and he was unaware, as I took the pictures, I had a good look at him, his height, his face with all its features, those curious eyes and that thick mop of hair that I love so much, in that moment, I didn’t care if I was a little late for work, all I did was savor the moment of seeing my pride and joy walk about unaware and so happy, it made me so happy and proud to be a mother. Now that goes without saying that there are some worst days, I’ve been through the teething stages, the sleepless night but the worst thing is seeing your child sick- there is nothing you can do to take the pain away and that hurts me so much. Sure, you go for medication and pamper your baby a little extra but you are human, and exhausted and have a crabby little baby that demands your attention more than ever and even though you love your child, having a sick, crying baby has got to be the worst time ever for a mother because that’s the first lesson of life you get, you can’t control everything when it comes to your baby. All we can do is love and love to the best of our ability!

    The best thing about motherhood is the fact that im imperfect but my son thinks I’m the Best and being able to grow with him. He makes me want to be a better ME so that I can live by example. He always brings some excitement, like this morning at 3 he wakes up and says he wants to go to ouma, I take him to ouma and hardly 10 minutes his back in the room, I want to sleep by you mommy. I didn’t think it was cute this morning but I must admit that there is no dull moment with a toddler. The worst thing ever is when your child is sick and there is nothing you can do to make them feel better, even though we try our best

    The best thing about being a mom is that I always give my all for my children from the day they were born whether I am ill or well, never wanting to miss a milestone. I became a better person because I know have little people looking up to me wanting to be like me one day when they’re all grown up. The best thing about being a mom is that we teach our children but also learn from them everyday, they drive me insane and also keep me sane. The very best thing about being a mom is unconditional love…
    The worst thing about being a mom is when we have to make positive life changing decisions which will be confusing for them at a young age, but which they will only understand at an older age even though my intentions are never to bring chaos to my children’s live… 🙁

    There are so many things that I love about motherhood <3 but yes, there are also some things that i don't like. I have 2 daughters, born 2 years apart (on the same day) and tue youngest is 3 months old. It amazes me how different (yet amazing) the two experiences were, from the get go.
    I love how my 2 year old hugs and kisses her sister and says 'i huff wu' (I love you), how she runs to find out why the baby is crying (she drops her toys and even stops watching mickey mouse) and tries to comfort her sussie by putting her pacifier in her mouth. The baby adores her older sister and is always amused by her singing and dancing and laughs and talks to her as if she understands. Watching this bond develop warms my heart because we find comfort in the fact that they will grow up together and be besties.

    I dislike (I typed hate but its such a strong word) when my 2 year old has a tantrum around family and they blame her behaviour (because this is a new thing) on the baby and say that we must not neglect her. My husband and I try really hard and I think that we succeeded in including big sister in all we do so that she doesn't feel left out. Their nonstop comments makes us feel like we have let our daughter down and then self doubt creeps in.

    Thats it, I will stop typing 🙂

    Thank you for inspiring us, for making us feel that we can do it all and that we dont have to choose <3

    Wouldn’t we all like to have our shit sorted ? The worst thing about being a mom you don’t get leave days ? No off days, always be in mommy mode even if you’re sick as a dog that baby doesn’t care … best thing about being a mom, knowing there’s a little person that thinks you are their whole world, hearing her call me mommy… I don’t need anything else.❤️

    My baby girl was 11 weeks yesterday (I had to double check on the calendar, time is just flying by). Not sure there is a “worst thing about being a mom” but there certainly are moments when it all seems a little over whelming. This is my first baby and my biggest lesson I have learnt in these few short weeks is never to judge. I often judged other parents before I became a mom and boy oh boy has my tune changed.
    There are hard moments let’s not beat around the bush, you see my baby used to scream for hours on end, during those moments I could of run away but instead I had a few glasses of wine instead. I am being brutally honest I had moments of insanity where I used to think I could do something unsafe to my daughter, but I walked away as not to act on my thoughts but to rather gather my sanity. I look at this perfect little human my husband and I created, at times feeling a little overwhelmed by
    the responsibility of it all, that this little person relies on me for everything right now in her life, but I take it all in as one day this shall all pass and my baby will be grown and so reliant on me. I embrace every single day as life goes far too quickly. Just for today I watch her grow and never wish a moment of her life away. Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts, being a mom is the best biggest dream and accomplishment of my life. Xx

    I just had my first baby (she’she’s two months now) and the other day I told my midwife that as much as I love my daughter if she was a dress I had bought in a store I’d be returning her. It sounds terrible -I know but this experience has been SOOO overwhelming. No one can actually prepare you for being a mother – even with all the reading I did before falling pregnant and during pregnancy I still feel like I know nothing.
    For me the toughest adjustment has been not being able to just “get up and go” as before. Everything needs to be planned now and in a way that’s a change I needed in my life. In spite of all the stress the fact that my munchkin depends on my totally for everything makes it all worthwhile.

    I am a new mom to a beautiful three month old blue-eyed babygirl. I had no idea what motherhood would feel like but I was really excited to find out. Within these three months my best moments of being a mom are when I can give my baby what she needs (being able to breastfeed her when she’s hungry and needs nourishment,knowing that my milk is what’s making her grow and keeping her healthy). Another magnificent moment or two about being a mom is when I observe her little milestones and know that she’s developing as well as when I see the pure joy she brings to her father and granparents. She lights them up in a way I’ve never seen them glow before?

    One or two of my worst moments as a mom has been when I was hospitalised just two weeks after having my baby girl. She wasn’t allowed into ICU and she was left with my husband and mom for just two days but I felt so bad that I couldn’t be with her or feed her. I felt like it was solely my responsibility to do that especially in her first weeks on this earth. I also have the worst moments when she has to get vaccinated. Although I know it’s good for her,I feel so down for the pain she has to go through. I guess this journey is one that only God can see us through.

    The hardest things about being a mom:
    -Not enough sleep. Constant tiredness. After a few hours of interrupted sleep, I wake up at 03:00am to prepare for a 3 hour travel to work. Then do my best to be productive. 3 Hour travel back home. Play time with my little boy. Prepare for the night. Prepare for the next day. Get to bed at the latest 10:00pm. Then the cycle starts again…
    – No ‘me time’ – that is a distant reccuring dream only. A far away memory that brings tears to my eyes and a desparation in my heart, if for one single moment I let my focus go…
    – Leaving my precious boy to go to work. Spending more than 8 hours a way from him, when its now that he needs me the most…
    – The expectantcy of being supermom. It seems to me that once you become a mother, you also receive super powers. Can I let you in on a little secret … I did not get that super powers. Or maybe I dont know how to activate them. Shhhhh…

    The best thing of being a mother:
    – I am blessed that my little one has never gotten really sick or had to be hospitalised.
    – I am blessed that my mother can look after my precious little one while hubby and I go to work.
    – Experiencing his happiness. Hugging him. Loving him. Hearing him laugh. Seeing him grow. when he come to lay on my head in the weary hours of the night.
    – A husband that does his best to help and that is more involved than any other I have seen.
    – Seeing my little precious boy achieving the milestones in his own time. Its a wonderous thing seeing them grow.

    These blessings and joys overcome the hard times…and praying continueously☺

    Thank you for your honesty…for being real.

    Lol …I only read your blog never comment, but it feels good to write again.?to put words to the emotions..

    Too many bests to list just one. When she smiles at me. When she looks in my eyes with contentment when she drinks her milkies (even though im most likely flashing the whole family or restaurant. But the best is when she cries out “muuuuummmm” because all she really wants is me.
    And the worst is when i really need to do something and HAVE to put her down, and she cries so hard like ive abondoned her and never coming back. Or when im having a really tough day and i scream coz ive just reached the burnout point, ans i feel like such a bad mom, because its my only job, and the most important, and im just not getting it right, because i jusr broke my precious little girls heart.

    I simply love your posts…. I would say the best thing is the feeling of being wanted and needed, as you are the only one that will satisfy that little persons craving, oh my heart just melts when Josh wants nothing else but mom, when he waits for me to come home only to fall asleep in my arms within the first 2mins of his head resting on my chest… The worst would have to be that moment when dad leaves the room and his eyes follows the shadow and he cries as if I’m merely a ghost in the room with him…. I love being a mom

    Fantastic post, Jo-Ann! There is nothing more real that I’ve experienced, than when becoming a mom. As I write this, I have a little body pressed against mine, wheezing through a blocked little nose and it’s my high for the day.
    I’ve enjoyed the privilege of parenthood for 15 months, and my boy has been my best teacher yet. And YES – I DO enjoy a glass of wine (“or 2 or 4…”) on those tough days. I don’t feel guilty. We are human after all, and the more real about the great and tough times of motherhood we are, I think the better we can fulfill our roles as a “mamma.”
    Keep on keeping it real, Jo. You’re doing great

    Agh so hard to really isolate a worst and best in between all the emotions, love and happiness I experience as a single mom to a 4 year old. I think I’m finding the f’ing fours (as a friend aptly named it) very trying as my son in very independent and needy at same time but so defiant and know it all and very stubborn at moment which is the worst ever !!!!! The best is waking up every morning to a new happy smile and hug and a I love you very much ….. the best feeling that no matter what I am loved to the moon and back by this little guy I made and raised.xxxxx

    It really looks like you have your shit together. I used to think my shit was together but after discovering I’m 6weeks pregnant and having a beautiful 7 year old daughter my whole world is out of control. I can no longer spend time with my beautiful daughter as I’m sick all the time and most of it in bed. Days goes by without me knowing what day it is. This currently is my worst time of motherhood. The best is that I know also this will pass and can’t wait for my blessing to make his or her arrival. And soon I will be able to make up with my 7 year old.

    Hi Joanne.

    I love reading your blog. i like that you tackle issues society doesnt want to address and bring it to the public fore such as being ridiculed for breast feeding your baby in a public place.

    I’m a mom to 4 angels. Sadly none of my children are alive. I carried all of them for as long as my body could. I experienced the constipation, bloating, nausea, which actually turned out to be HG and I had to be hospitalised 3 times for an IV drip to be administered, the sensitive boobs and the emotional roller coaster ride the hormones causes. And still today, I dont have any children that I can hold, or read bedtime stories to or bake pancakes for when their first tooth pushes through.

    My wish is that society will be more open to helping woman like me. I know how challenging being a mom can be for those who are blssed to have their miracles with them. But it is equally challenging for those who dont. Just like breast feeding in public is still considered taboo by many, so too is speaking openly about miscarriage, infant loss and still birth. I wish this this could change so that woman like me can feel less alone and supported.

    This year I celebrated Mothers Day because I am a mother. Lots of people dont agree with this because my babies were never born. But all women know, that you bond with your baby the minute you find out you are pregnant. You dont love your child less than any other mother, so why doesnt society consider me a mom?
    Just like your life changes when your child is born, so too does ours when our babies die.

    Please consider having a guest post on pregnancy loss to support the mommies of angels out there.

    God bless and keep up the good work.

    Hey there..thanks for being so honest, love it.

    The worst thing about being a mom is that i never know and WILL never know what to expect next..ooo that gets me on edge and extremely nervous..

    The best thing about being a mom (with keeping the worst in mind), is watching my daughter grow and develop into an intelligent witty, funny, confident, respectful being. I cannot describe that feeling to you, but i very well you know what i am referring to.

    Best thing: when they fall asleep in my arms. I’ve never met an angel but I think that’s what they look like. Peaceful. Worst thing: not being able to just be carefree anymore. I always feel so responsible and alert. I forgot what unwind really means because a day set aside to unwind is not really unwinding. I’d like to unwind… Let’s UNWIND!!

    The worst thing for me about being a mom is that I often find myself comparing my ability to other moms. This often leaves me feeling that I am not giving the best of myself to my kids or my hubby. But then I get home and am greeted by a family that have their cups overflowing with love and admiration for me, and that is by far the best thing. Everything they do is without reservation, and nothing in this world matters when I know I have all that. Being a mom is by far the best honour that has been bestowed on me.

    The worst thing is that I do not belong to me anymore. The best thing is how much she needs me.

    Best thing: unlimited love and acceptance from a precious innocent little being 🙂

    Worst thing: as a single mom, it’s when I’m ill, coz there’s still the household and the little one to take care of…

    PS: also loved Bad Moms!
