The mom that has lost all patience and yells at her child or children in the middle of a store. What about the mom whos child is having a complete meltdown out in public. Oh yes, my fellow mamas, at some point, it WILL be you. You know exactly what I’m referring to. ”That Mom!” The one you have looked at and said “That will never be me.” The mom that everyone either
1) sympathizes with because they have absolutely been there
2) looks at and thinks “She needs to get a grip and control her kids.”
You may very well be thinking I’m CRAZY! Even though your kids misbehave at home they are pretty good in public, RIGHT!? I promise you, one day, you will be ”That Mom” who is totally embarrassed, frustrated, angry, and wants to run far away and say that’s not my child. In that moment, you will feel the pain of the mothers you have judged and think twice about it next time.

Mental Notes For Mommy is just a fun way to share something I’ve learned and certainly don’t want to forget. It may be something new, funny, serious, or a tip I thought would be good to share with the rest the mamas out there. Because as always, we all are doing our best to survive the chaos of everyday life in the trenches of motherhood.
