Scary Mommy and the reasons I laugh until I cry

If you’re not familiar with Scary Mommy dot com, I highly recommend scooting over to that corner of the internet.  Seriously just go there.  Right now.  I’ll even recommend abandoning the frosting, belt sanders and corseted funkyness that’s happening here with us just to send you on a hilarious journey.  Recently, the admin of Scary Mommy reposted an old blog about her favorite yoga pants, and I laughed until I had tears running down my face.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!



The site itself is a community of men and women who are either already parents, or are trying to get pregnant.  It’s a real, honest look at motherhood, without the bullshit lies that everyone slings around when you have kids.  The people are genuine, the posts are often a riot of laughs and the truth here is beautiful.  Some posts will bring you to tears.  I know I have laughed until I cried, and cried until I laughed.  It’s a true thing of beauty.

But under it all- what really keeps me going back again and again?  Check out the Confessionals.  Anonymous posts about raw motherhood- in a format where nobody can be judged.  I’m totally addicted to these, and have added a few of my own over the past few months.  What they’ve created over there is nothing short of glorious, and I know that I will continue to follow along for every step of the way.
