Enough with the 'Mompetition' already

4 years ago

So, my boy started crawling 4 days ago.

He's 10 months old...for another few days anyway.

Go ahead. It's okay...you can one-up me.

My kids are late crawlers (among other things) and I'm okay with it because I have officially withdrawn myself from the Mompetition.

You know what I mean right?  Mompetition: The one-up rivalry that moms play making their child seem better, smarter, and/or more advanced than yours.  

Where you get the look followed by 'Awww, so sweet.  My Susie started crawling at 6 months.'

Cool, neat for Susie.
