    I judged a mum yesterday at school pick up time, lol. She is in her mid 40's, was wearing a sloppy joe jumper, jeggines and high heels. And when I say high heels, I mean stillettos! Like who does that? lol

    Um...I have. I woke up with five minutes before pick up time, raced around to find something publicly acceptable to wear and I couldn't find my sneakers so I popped on my Jimmy Choos (okay, they weren't K-Mart Jimmy Choos).

    God forgive me but I also judge smoking. Especially pregnant smokers.
    You can put me on the stake now.

I do still have weak moments of judgyness though.
    Please try not to. Every mum has their reason and remember, we don't know people's stories.
    I couldn't breastfeed due to my mental health. It would have been dangerous for both me and my baby. I won't get into detail, but I hated being judged for something I couldn't help.
    And I don't mean this in a nasty way. At all! = )

    I'm really happy to hear that a majority of you wouldn't judge a mum based on her appearance. That's fantastic!

    I believe it's human nature to judge - its how we express such judgement that separates us. By being vocal to the person about it or b*tching to someone else about it you are leaving yourself open to judgement from others. By judging, taking it on board and resolving to be or not be like that, then that is turning a stereotypically bad trait into a good one.

    I am the mum the looks exhausted and bedragled, I am the mum with the sceaming kid, I am the mum of the child that throws her self on the floor and is un controlable, I am the mum that tries to convince her to walk nicely out of the shot, the mum that ends up carrying her out of the shop while I get punched in the fcae and kicked and my hair pulled and my arms pinched.

    All while other mums look at me in disgust about my unruly child, and the way i look and the way she looks.

    I am a mum of a child with special needs, a child who freaks out when people stare at her, and doesnt under stand the more she freaks out the more they look.

    As for judging people, gosh I'm the last one who should be judging anyone lol. I rocked up for school pick up today in tight dance pants, a baggy pearl jam tshirt and covered in dirt from head to toe... Come to think of it I probably smelled a bit funky too I'd spent all day digging out a garden bed.

    That sounds so hard, I'm feeling for you. What would you say to those mothers who give you those looks if you had the time and energy?

    I judge the teenage mum still hanging out in her pack of teenage friends with a child in tow, as if it's business as usual down the mall _ as if having a baby didn't change anything in her head. Especially if the kid is in a haze of cigarette smoke, being ignored, and if it's too late in the day...and if it looks like no lessons were learned about contraception.
