What is a Theta Mom?
Heather @ Theta Mom explains it best when she says:
We are Theta Moms, The True, Authentic Moms. [The-T-A] We are authentic because we live authentic lives. Life isn’t perfect and neither are our kids.
So why am I a Theta Mom?
Plenty of reasons. I was not born to be a mother like all those Stepford wives out there. I was not prepared to be a mother. I was not warned about everything. Why do existing mothers feel the need to keep all the information to themselves?
It's not fair. Share the wealth girls!!!
I was due on June 6th, was to be induced on the 17th, and finally gave birth on June 14th. I hated being pregnant.
But being a mother is proving to be more difficult.
I may not be the best mother, but I am a damn good mother. I smoke, I drink, I cuss. But my son is well taken care of. He is smart, healthy and happy. He is my world.
Stay at home moms....we have more than a full time job. And the boss is more than demanding. The boss tells you when you screw up. The boss thanks you when you don't screw up.
I am a Theta Mom. And proud of it. If you think you're an Alpha mom 100% of the time, you be crazy. And even if you are, you're still crazy. Aren't you a little over loaded? I know I am, and I am far from an Alpha mom. Yes I cook dinner every night from scratch, yes I make cakes and cupcakes from scratch. Everything I have I give to him. But there are the days where he sits in his play area and plays by himself forever. There are days that all I want to do is yell and scream at this child. But I don't. There are days that I want to run out of the house screaming, I can't do this. And sometimes, I really truly think that I can't.
And what's worse...my child is good. He is quiet, he is well mannered, he rarely cries, he's independent, he's social, the list goes on and on. It's sad that I have such a wonderful child, and I still think I can't do it.
What happens when I have a second one, and the second one is the devil? What will I do then?
I am a Theta Mom. I am not perfect. The way I raise my child is not perfect. My child will not be perfect. But what can you do?
