I was going to wait to write this lovely post, not because I wanted to, but because I should probably wait until I'm not so angry.
If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you probably saw my post earlier yesterday...
"to the person that has time to actually sit down, go through my blog, write nasty comments, and who chooses to stay anonymous...super classy."
You see, while checking my email yesterday during nap time, I received 7, yes 7, anonymous emails, in a row, all from comments on my blog...but more specifically all of these comments were on my "What is Hudson up to Wednesday" posts. Seven different comments, on the past seven WIHUTW.
These comments were mean, cruel, and completely disgusting...especially because they were personal attacks to me and my little man...
After posting this to Facebook, I received comments that made my laugh and that made me cry:
" And nasty mamma bears have wonderful sisters.. That would do anything.. And I mean anything so let's all let this wonderful mother continue what she is doing, without those nasty comments. Because not only is she my sister, but Hudson is my nephew.. And now I'm just all fired up." [love my sister!]
"And mama bears have friend mama bears and we'll straight up beat them!! Eww I am so mad Elise!! I love you. Hudson is perfect and Anonymous is ugly, fat and jealous they can't make cute babes like him ." [love my friends]
" Are you kidding me? How pathetic. I think if I caught them I might bitch slap them into next week....just sayin "
With that being said...
If you were looking to get a rise out of me...well congrats, you certainly got it. My mama bear mentality came out in full force yesterday because when you attack my family, you attack and involve me. If you really feel the need to tell me that I'm a horrible mother because I spend "too much time" blogging, that I use my WIHUTW posts to make up for the fact that I'm not spending time with him, and that my mind is not "all in" this "motherhood thing"...shame on you. If telling me that I do his hair in a mohawk because I'm teaching him to hide behind that as he grows up, you are 100% wrong because I'm actually teaching Hudson to be confident, unlike you who seems to be a coward for hiding behind "anonymous". If emailing me a picture that I posted on my blog 6 weeks ago, telling me that I photo-shopped his eyelashes to be longer...honestly?! WRONG. actually H's eyes are just that amazing, and my kid is just the perfect, and you had n o t h in g to do with that [thank goodness]! If asking me not to have other children, because I would be doing them a disservice by not giving them my full attention, well, I just don't think that decision is up to you, now is it?! I don't feel that I should have to justify why I blog, when I blog, and how I blog...but if you must know, I blog during nap time [shocker!]. I blog for me, as my journal.This is my way of keeping family and friends close. If you don't like what I write, don't read it...but to the other hundreds of followers, thank you....I must be doing something right, right?!
So, pick me apart, shred me to pieces, rip and tear all you want...but when you decide to take it a step further...don't think you won't hear about it. I can promise you, you won't stay anonymous forever. So while you were wasting your time posting mean comments on my blog, I was teaching H how to say "sorry". Something you could probably take some notes on. This little boy is my absolute world,
So before you sit down, go through my posts, and take the time to write a comment, remember this mama bear....and her entourage.
