  1. I have to agree that the most vigilante are those that are the least tolerant of others’ opinions. I firmly support each parent’s right to choose how they raise they child, as long as its supportive, loving, and safe environment. How is it anyone else’s right to decide if a woman should breastfeed or not, co-sleep or not, or allow any crying or not. Anyone who grew up in the ’70s lived on TV dinners and hanging out of sunroofs, roaming the neighborhood on bicyles, drinking baby formula. We’re all ok. Sure there are improvements, research, and new knowledge. But, its up to each person to pick and choose what’s right for them.
    The newfangled mother of today is so concerned with doing what’s ‘right’ or attending to the latest research, that they may be sacrificing a relaxing, fun, enjoyable childhood.
    And by the way, I personally don’t agree with plopping babies in front of the TV either. But that’s just my opinion…

  2. Go for it babe – for every person who (deliberately?) misunderstands what you are doing/saying, there are so many more cheering you on, and plenty that are wishing they had the strength and opportunity to voice their thoughts.

  3. I like the new version of YOU, even more! Let your haters be your motivators and keep on keepin it REAL for the mums who need YOU to shine your light!

  4. You know what they say, all publicity is good publicity! Apparently people out there are aware of you. They may or may not be aware of what you are trying to do, but they know you’re there. And just by being here, by doing what you do, you are changing the world, one life at a time…

  5. Hmm. The reason I signed up for your club was because it didn’t have the judgement and guilt the other mum’s sites do.

    And btw, it’s saved my life on more than one occasion.

  6. Sorry that you even had to write that post. Haters can go piss of. You do a GREAT job and I for one can relate to it 100%

  7. Ha! I am dealing with that today, as you might already know. Thanks for having words to help me deal with it. You said it perfectly, thanks so much.

  8. I always try to tell myself (when trying not to cry in offence) ‘Rudeness is a weaks mans imitation of strength’. Let them be weak I say.

  9. I think some people will always be jealous of success. How many of the people who are so offensive have got blogs with the readership of yours? Or can reach out to as many people as you do?

    Just remember

    “Success is always the best revenge”

  10. Thanks, chicks!

    Yeah, was gonna say “how many of those people can say someone told them “you saved my life today””?

    But that sounded wanky 😀

  11. Well, you didn’t save my life – but you’ve certainly saved my sanity on a number of occasions! Good for you.

    “To thine own self be true…”

  12. You’ve brought laughter to me at times when I’ve felt like I’m goin insane.
    People need to spend a liiiiiiiittle bit more time finding out more about what your site stands for. Their loss if they dont.
    Thanks for the laughs, they’re the best medicine :o)
