clicks, comments and haters all in a row

Carrie, Carrie, quite contrary,
How does your Blog grow?
With a few clicks and comments
And my single first hater message all in a row.

It has been so much fun writing and watching my baby Blog grow. I have heard other bloggers talk about the occasional ‘hater’ message and mine in all honesty was not so much hater and more someone who is probably very nice who just doesn’t get my humor. Not all Blogs are for all people, if you’re looking for the mom who writes about when her best foot is forward with lots of happy face pics there are TONS out there. I’ll just say mine is a bit more when my worst foots forward because let’s face it, that’s when shit gets funny.

“Just Mildly Medicated,
I like your blog and think you are funny but all the posts about your children include a reference to Child Services. I can’t help but wonder if we should we have concern about this? Do you think you might need someone to talk to?”

Nah, I just happen to have a few friends who either are or were in the child services field. My best friend is one who I talk to almost daily and over the years we’ve started a few conversations with “This isn’t Child Services worthy but…” I have no problem admitting I have had more than a few moments that looked bad.

One time my younger son, who throws a fit like I have never seen, and I have 4 kids, was being taken upstairs on a wonderful Fall day in Georgia for a time out of a huge magnitude. I was being all awesome and keeping my voice calm and holding his hand. He seemed like he was already calming down then out of nowhere he wailed and jumped up and lifted his legs. At the same time I am looking through the screen door to see a jogger in front of the house while I was frozen with a screaming dangling small child.

Another one that sticks was when I almost lost my mind at Target. My older son was maybe 6ish, he was in and out of the racks and walking away from me. I finally had enough and leaned in and whispered all scarily ‘if you don’t knock it off you won’t make it through this day’. Yeah, totally stood up and a woman was right there. She looked at me and we all knew I handled it wrong. Kiddo got an apology.

If you don’t have these types of stories you either haven’t been parenting long enough or you kids are grown and you forgot.

    Oh how totally true. It amazes me how judgmental other people can be when they have no idea what lies underneath that person. Bring the humor and sarcasm – those are the blogs I like to read and laugh at. Love your blog and your style.
