Anonymous Commenter

Dear Anonymous Commenter,

I understand that you have an opinion as does everyone else in the world. You have been taking the time to leave not-so-nice comments on several of my posts, present and past. So, I thought I would respond, (which I cannot do in a private setting as I have no way to contact you!).
  1. I am not too young to have three children. Am I young? Yes. Does that mean I am any less of a mother than some of the older parents? No way!
  2. Just because I took pictures of my girls bickering rather than break it up, does not make me a bad mother. I feel that there is a time to intervene and a time to work out their differences among themselves. No one was being hurt in any way, so I let them work it out.
  3. If you are going to comment on my blog and judge my parenting skills, please do not do it anonymously. If you have the nerve to write what you did about me and my parenting, leave your name.
  4. If you don't like how my husband and I conduct our family, DON'T READ MY BLOG! This is a virtual scrapbook of sorts for my family and friends.
  5. And, one more thing, I do love my girls more than anything. But, I feel this is a place to be honest and true. Life is not always smiles and giggles. If you say yours is, you are lying to yourself and others.

So, Anonymous Commenter, I deleted your comments. I don't feel they something that I want to be on my blog. Have a nice day! We sure will in our house...although, I am SURE there will be some fighting amongst the girls. (I might even argue with my husband about what's for dinner! OH THE HORROR!)

Yours truly,

Boni

Boni,
You are a wonderful, loving mother and wife. I enjoy reading about the everyday life of your family. I am proud of you for standing up for your sweet family! Keep those cute pictures coming!

How weird!! Someone is really leaving ugly comments about your parenting skills??? You're a great mom. Have you though about setting your blog to private?

Amanda @ Bibs and Cribs said...

What a B----!!! Why do people feel they have to make ugly comments like that? ESPECIALLY anonymous! If you have something to say, be an adult and say it!

I have a couple of friends who have had a negative commenter and they have learned to trace the person's IP address -- they figured out who the person is by doing so. I would be happy to pass them along to you if you like!

I am a friend of Molly's & just had to comment on this - people are turds. I'm so sorry this has happened to you & your family - from what I've read of your posts, you seem to have it all under control! I love that you do 'keep it real' & post about the bad with the good - those girls & the hubs are lucky to have you!

I loved this!! You are so right - life is not always smiles and giggles - I wish it were. But it is LIFE after all! I don't understand why others like to knock people down rather then lift up.

There will always be people that have an opinion - but who cares. Just live your life and do what you do! =)

You go girl. What a wuss (note I wanted to use a much more appropriate but un-nice word!). Way to shove it back in their face.

Maybe you should of noted in there that she/he would be a much better parent if they were spending time with their family and not finding random people's blogs to bash. I mean seriously...do you not have anything better to do?

I seriously can't believe stupid and inconsiderate people. I bet they have a seriously unhappy life and are trying to take it out on innocent happy people!

You are amazing person, mother, and friend! Way to tell them off and not take their crap!
