"Not waking up with them in the morning?
Haha, just wait. You'll have mornings where you lie on the couch half-asleep while your toddler plays in the child-proof living room. I promise not to judge you for it."



Hahaha indeed. I put DS in his jumparoo just so I can get maybe an extra 30 minutes of sleep.

I turn my tv on cartoons for her and I go back to sleep for an hour or two. :( I'm so tired with this pregnancy, like I could sleep all day.

f**k sometimes I will wake up enough to get them something to eat and a sippy and then put on a movie for them and go back to sleep for an hour or so.
I also had sex with both of them in the room when they were little and sleeping next to my bed in their pack n plays.
I don't smoke cigs in the house but I will smoke some weed with the window open and their door closed. ( I don't have money for a vap) :(

Ya i'm pretty much agreeing with everyone else here.
I must be a pretty crap mom since I rarely get up early with myy oldest ones. They wake at 630ish and will come out and watch tv and get themselves breakfast. Or play a game quietly. They are 6 (almost 7) and 4. However, when my youngest gets up (a bit after 8 usually) then I will get up with him. I am not a morning person at all, and if these kids don't want a crabby mom, then they let me sleep a bit more.



I've also had sex with kids in the room (not older then 2), sleeping (also not in same bed).

I agree your reasons are a little bland and lame.




IMO. Besides the fact of abuse and neglect etc......



That nothing really makes you a bad mom. And what I mean by this is the fact that every parent has a different way of raising their child/ren. And just because soemeone elses morals and values differ from yours, does not automaticaly mean "bad" mom.



I know two ladies one in her early 30's and one in her mid 20's. Both are partiers, they like to drink alot. They are always out at the bar on the weekend at night, while their children are sleeping.



There lifestyle differs from mine alot. Are they bad moms? No. Do they love their children? Yes, very much they do. Did they smoke during pregnancy? Yes.



If a parent is providing love and care to their children, spends quality time with them, feeds and clothes and is very involved in their childs education, why does it matter if they go out every weekend and party, or get Grandparents to watch the kids a few days a week to chill out or whatever. Its not the point and has no barrier on what makes them a "good" or "bad" mom.



I live at home at the moment, and I am still the sole person who cares for my children, feeds them clothes them, pay s bills and rent. Cooks cleans etc....
I could ask my parents whenever to watch my kids if I wanted to, I have but maybe once every 2 months or so for a few hours. And I dont include the running up to the store to buy formula and my mom is here and the kids stay, I am gone like 5 min. lol



But what I am trying to say is, parents are too hard on eachother and judge every little thing another parent does that is "different" then what they do, co-sleeping,spanking,timeouts,grounding how much tv another parent lets "their" child watch. Its completely ridic to me. I am not saying I have never "judged" another parent we all do at times. lol



But what it comes down to, is when abuse and neclect and severe lack of responsability comes in to play, then the title of "bad" mom or "uneducated" mom or even "misguided" mom is more revelent. Or parent. lol



Everyone views child rearring differently it does mean they are a "bad" parent.
