I've enjoyed reading this thread, about everyone, animals, and what people do or don't wear at home! Let me add that I see nothing wrong with wearing nothing, but personally I can't stand that... I wear socks in the summer because I don't even like bare feet, and a bra to bed!
Anyway, let me ask you guys something. I get so mad when I watch Dateline or 48 Hours and it's SO OBVIOUS the guy did it, and their mom is like, "no way, not my son! He's perfect!" And you know what? I know my mother would say the same thing, about one of my brothers. When he got a DUI she said "Well, boys will be boys" (he was 31 at the time). And I know other mothers who are the same, always blindly sticking up for their sons no matter what they do. ...the thing is though, I notice a pattern. I actually have TWO brothers. The one who's married and lives in another city and has a normal life, my mom would have no problem throwing him under the bus. The one she "protects" and puts on a pedestal lives his life like a loser (works sporadically, lived at home for 12 years, now always needs rent $$, etc). It's like the more a son "needs" his mom, the more she puts him on a pedestal. IT'S SO GROSS.
So here's the thing guys! I'm pregnant with my first child (due in May!), and it's a boy. Right now I presume he'll be an average human being with great things about him and also flaws, like anyone else. I just can't see myself being like a "Dateline mom", acting like he's perfect. Moms with sons, anyone?? HELP ME NOT TO BE A DATELINE MOM.
