I wasn't offended in the least about the major exaggerations and generalizations about the charm of us mommas... In fact, I'd probably be a happier person if it was me.
The only thing that I dont like about them is that it makes cloth diapering mommas seem like just so many more Martha Stewarts, which I have to say I doubt many of us are.
I dont have a perfect family, dont cook unless it comes from a box (my DH cooks), dont make vegan cookies, and probably wouldnt want to eat them if I could
... We are old fashioned meat eaters, with an SUV and a dying lawn. We are average people, who made a decision to do something a little out of the norm.
Making us look too good makes other moms think that CDs happen only in the best of circumstances. To me its kinda like most portrayals of breastfeeding in the media, with the mom in a nightgown and baby naked, both like they dont have a care in the world... The "real" nursing mom is sitting in a parking lot nursing her baby cause the grocery store doesn't have a place to sit, and they have two more stops to make, but you'd never know they left the house by the way the media portrays it. Its turned into an unattainable ideal, one that "normal" people don't bother to try, cause they dont feel like Martha Stewarts... KWIM? Maybe its just me. I dont mind saying Im not perfect... And Id rather wash dipes than dust.
