I’m just like every other mom, right?

Last Sunday we had a rough experience, or at least *I* did. Whenever something like this happens it really highlights to me how different we are from other families.

It seems like in between these moments (because there are lots of them) I tend to forget how different we are. Crazy me, I just go about living my life as if it were “typical” until someone’s 10 year old reminds me that it is not.

But today I got a little reminder of how (dare I say) “normal” we are.

My dear friend and a fellow SN mom at You Get What You Get has a post up with an interview of author Amy Wilson and a giveaway of her book, When Did I Get Like This: The Screamer, the Worrier, the Dinosaur-Chicken-Nugget Buyer, & Other Mothers I Swore I’d Never Be.

The interview is witty, but it was the comments that sucked me in. If you take a ¬†moment to read through the comments, which are funny one line sentences you swore you’d never say — but now mention at least once daily; you may realize how similar we moms really are.¬†

It made my day to be able to comment, and for a moment I was just like every other mom. Obviously my life is following a different path than most other moms, but just like I tell my son, “I’m in charge” here.

Do you have any “typical” mom moments to share?
