You can find the back story on Self Shaming / Mom Shaming here, but the short of it is I’m not one to throw stones. Before submitting a picture of my dog Baxter to Dog-Shaming.com, and while laughing my ass off at Mommy Short’s Baby Shaming, I did some Self Shaming too. If nothing else, I thought that was the fair thing to do. After all, who doesn’t have skeletons in the closet? Mine just happen to be in there amongst dust bunnies the size of Volkswagens…
Apparently, I’m not the only one willing to let my shame hang out either! Some of my favorite Bloggers started Self Shaming/Mom Shaming too! But I don’t want to excluded anyone here, so at the Shame Corner if you’re willing to share your shame, whether you’re a Mom, a Dad, not a parent at all, a professional, a pirate, or whatever, all are welcome! I’ll be featuring one Self-Shamer each week! So if you’ve got shame and you want to share, come join us in the Shame Corner! Better out than in, I always say!
For a chance to be featured, email me a photo to DomesticConsultants@gmail.com with “SHAME” in the subject line. Each Self Shamer gets their own sub-page here, will be featured on my Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest pages, and will also be pictured below on the Great Wall of Shame.
Now if I could only get my shame to turn into motivation so I could start getting my laundry put away…
Great Wall of Shame
Kim’s kids are total Halloween rock stars, or she must be a slow eater because I ran out of Halloween Candy before Thanksgiving! Either way, I’m totally jealous! But with such a great stash of junk food, this was a resolution made to be broken! Catch up with Kim on her blog, Let Me Start by Saying!
My favorite Dare-Dance Blogger, Kerry from HouseTalkN, is no stranger to Mom Shaming, and she’s bringing it back for 2013…although, when she decided to bring sexy back, Dick Clark wasn’t what she was expecting. No matter what, I think she’s still fabulous, and maybe she’ll adopt my new mantra – Pale. It’s the new tan.
Maggie F. shares her holiday shame, but I say it’s all fair game when it comes to getting the kids in bed early…and who hasn’t forgotten to move the Elf? Great excuse, and I think I’ll be using this next time I forget to move our Troll!
Gina from SAHM’s The Word, shares her shame, and one of the untold other benefits of breast feeding. If you ask me, this is totally legit! Shame on, Mama!
It’s a natural disaster, and I’m not just talking about my hair….so is it Mom Shame or is it fair game?
Like I said, it’s not just for Moms, we know Dad’s have shame too! This Dad, part of the Safely family, shares his own Self Shaming picture! My own husband took a look, and asked, “You mean a baby wipe isn’t sufficient?” There you have it!
I wasn’t even looking at the mess in Suburban Snapshot’s room, I was digging her fabulous boots!
My Life and Kids is a master of keeping the laundry piles small…and third day’s a charm!
Honest Mom might be honest, but she might also be a tad hypocritical…”do as I say, not as I do” is my motto anyway!
Bad Parenting Moments was planning food preparations for an open house while her daughter was eating expired crackers for lunch…shameful, a little ironic, and pretty damn funny.
Frugalista Blog did say “borrowed” plus it was an emergency. Totally excusable!
Paige Kellerman shouldn’t be held responsible for her actions; she’s got a case of Bieber Fever…she does, however, get BIG bonus points for the “Shame” spelled out in refrigerator magnets in the background!
Hollow Tree Ventures is using one of my favorite hiding spots! No one would suspect you’d eat cookies in there, especially when it needs cleaned! Genius!
First of all, Kelley’s Break Room has a talented photographer, especially for only being 4 yrs old…and secondly, who hasn’t skipped a word, okay a paragraph, okay a page(s), every (night) now and again? I’m certainly not judging!
The laundry, and trying to keep up with keeping it clean for five people, stirs a variety of emotions for me, only one of which is shame (but it still doesn’t get it done any faster).
