I hesitated writing about the Alicia Silverstone “drama” of last week because, quite frankly, I don’t get what the uproar is about.
So she chews up food and spits it in her kid’s mouth? Big freaking deal.
Every day moms all over the world do that and a lot of other seemingly gross things to their kids. Yes, even you Judgy McJudgerson over there judging Alicia and her pre-chewing. Are you going to sit there with a straight face and tell me you’ve never cleaned your kid’s face with your own spit?
That’s pretty gross. Maybe Ms. Silverstone would look at you rubbing your dirty spit all over your kid’s face and think you’re gross. How ’bout them apples?
I saw that Mommyish had put together a list of disgusting things most moms do, including the old spit shine routine, so I jumped off from there to create a list of weird stuff we women do as a part of Being A Mom.
Check it out below: 7 gross things that goes down in the name of motherhood:
What am I missing? What things do you do in the name of motherhood that others might find disgusting?
