My Mommy Nemesis

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Guest blogger Liz Fenton: I've recently picked up a mommy nemesis on the playground. (But for the record, I really do like to play nice with the other mommies!) Don't judge: I'm betting that you have one, too. Maybe she's that mom who always looks down and ignores your cheery hello at pickup each day. Or maybe she's the one who can never seem to remember meeting you, even though you've been introduced several times. Or possibly she gave you the evil eye when you were rocking your sassy new boots on back-to-school night. No matter the circumstances, she has now become your mommy mortal enemy ....

mean looking woman
With mine, it all started out innocently enough. We met, and things seemed fine. But after the TENTH time I was introduced to her, I decided that unless this lady had early-onset Alzheimer's, she was probably snubbing me. The most baffling part? Everywhere I went (and, much to my dismay, she was EVERYWHERE I went), she was chatting everyone ELSE up. She had no problem remembering that she'd met the lunch lady, the soccer coach or the other mommies I knew. But for some reason, my face seemed to render her completely clueless.

And so I became slightly obsessed with my MN, much to the chagrin of my husband, who rolled his eyes every time I would wonder what all the other mommies whose names rolled off her tongue so easily had that I didn't. Was I that forgettable? My mommy nemesis was really bringing me down. So when I saw her this last week at a school event, I was ready to snub her right back. My mommy nemesis would control me no more!

I quickened my pace when I saw her and put my head down. Then, to my surprise, I felt a hand on my arm and heard a voice say, "Hi, Liz!" It was my mommy nemesis! Hmm ....

Hey buddy, %BLOGTITLE%, really?? Have you ever heard about SEO? Your title should contain your main keywords, I don’t think %BLOGTITLE% is a good title. You should think a little bit about it if you want to be found on Google.

So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
