10 Things That Really Piss Off Sanctimommies
I’m a total card carryin’ proud member of the Sanctimommyâ„¢ Club. Hell, I may EVEN be the president. When it comes to my own babies, I feel like I know exactly what I am doing, and I am all too happy to dole out my own version of Bad Mom Advice right here on Mommyish. I love telling people what to do with their kids, but after working here for quite a while (My anniversary is coming up!) I sort of feel like I may not technically be a real Sanctimommy, because most of my answers to questions are basically “You are doing fine, do whatever the hell you want, your kid is fine.” If I were a real Sanctimommy, I’d probably get all irate at most of you Moms out there and tell you all the time YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG.
But one thing I do know, is that there are some things that are pretty much guaranteed to piss a Sanctimommy off, and have her give you her two cents (make that 50 cents) on everything you are doing to fail at being a parent.Â Here are 10 of ’em.
Parents Giving A Small Child SodaÂ
Lawd forbid if a Sanctimommy catches you letting your kid sip from your beloved can of Diet Coke or slurp from your frappucino straw. We all know that soda and caffeine aren’t healthy for kids, and yet show me ONE parents who hasn’t let their kids take a swig of their pop on occasion. Yes, some parents never consume caffeine, but for those that do? I can pretty much promise a pair of under-five lips have enjoyed some, whether it be at a birthday party or a movie or when they have the hiccups and moms hands them the can.
Parents Having Guns In The House Â
I’m not a fan of guns. I do not like people being able to buy guns so easily. I ask parents if they keep guns in the house before my kid goes over for a playdate. But if the parents are responsible gun owners who keep their guns tightly locked up and they practice severe gun safety? It’s NOT my place to get all sanctimommy on them. I may not love guns, but I sure as hell am not going to dictate who can love them.
Parents Not Having A Strict Sleep ScheduleÂ
Mention your kid’s sleep schedule, and all the sanctimommies will be all-too happy to inform you that they have had their little darlings on a strict sleeping schedule since birth.
