“Parents, we need to cut each other some slack. You never know the full story. I seriously thought that people who have kids would suddenly grow up and be kind to each other. Ha. All this judging is exhausting.”

“I look forward to a post when you do have two. When both children need you, you bounce back and forth like a ping pong ball and let a lot of stuff go. There's less analyzing and more decisions on the fly. You will trust yourself more too. It's a whole different ball game...with no timeouts!”

“Sigh. Would you like me to ask the ten friends who shared their stories with me to come and verify my post? I'm sure they would be willing to do so.”

“I don't know any of the women of this post. What I do know is journalism. What the writer here posted is not rumour or gossip, it's the fruit of interviewing the subjects (many of whom have been kind enough in these comments to verify themselves as subjects, and the accuracy of their stories. Note the key word, THEIR. They are not passing along to the writer things they've heard from the grapevine about other moms, their passing along their own experiences as moms. It makes it an interview, not a gossip session. All you were doing, thathobemianone, was trying to start the 'rumour' within this thread that the blogger wasn't adhering to accepted journalistic practices, so that you could pass judgement on her. . .about something you clearly know very little about. In so doing, you proved her point”

thatbohemianone on Apr 3, 2013 at 07:48:13

“No, thats the point.  Ten friends talking about something that was said to them by someone else to prove negative assertions about that someone else is just gossip.”

“Maybe so, but some days I just get sick of perfectly nice people being picked on. Yep, I'm judging the judgers. You're judging me. It never ends. That was the point of this post.”

thatbohemianone on Apr 2, 2013 at 18:48:07

“I didnt judge you though. I made no personal remarks about you. I just pointed out that you are participating in it. The point of the post appeared to be that *some* women do this (those that operate at a junior high level)and should stop, not acknowledging that we are all part of it.”

“Nope, every single story is true. Every story comes from moms I've known for at least five years. One or two are even from me. :)”

“Two sides and alla that. You're still make assumptions about other moms (they are acting out high school dramas) and judging them (thats all there is to these stories) in the exact same way you are criticizing them for doing.”

Mommy Blogging: a Step Back for Feminism?

“As a new "mommy blogger" myself, it was with great amusement that I read this article. News flash Ms.Manori: We don’t care what you or anyone else thinks. We are confident enough in our very conscious decisions to raise our children and discuss raising our children in whatever ways we like.

I’m not sure why she calls herself a feminist, because she’s telling a huge group of other women that they are doing it all wrong. The Oxford Dictionary defines a feminist as “an advocate or supporter of the rights and equality of women.” Ms.Manori is not advocating or supporting anyone in this post. She’s just making herself look snarky and insecure. She also demeans men by saying “I cringe at the thought that a man will read these blogs, in turn reinforcing antiquated ideas of women in the home.” I’m not sure what kind of men she hangs out with, but the men in my life value, respect and admire me for putting my career on the back burner for a few years to raise up two confident, kind, and giving members of society.

Perhaps now I will go and can some organic baby food. Once I’m done that I will sit and google “gizmos” for my child’s nursery. On second thought, I’ll just go to sleep. That’s the only thing I obsess about these days.”
