I'm not really a ranting type of person in real life. Honestly, I'm not. This is my healthy therapy space where I can write about what ticks me off about other mothers, rather than having it rolling about in my head like a boiling vat of snakes.

Mothers who ... Reverse Brag

Overheard this mainly one-sided conversation:

"How's your daughter?"

"Oh, good.  Unfortunately.  She made the State swimming carnival."


"Yeah.  I wish she wasn't so good at swimming!"  [rueful laugh]


"It means I have to travel and sit on my butt all day watching her.  Also, all that early morning training!  I tell ya, it kills me having a kid who just keeps winning stuff."


And I didn't even make that up.
