How Do They See Me?

“Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world." George Bernard Shaw
Since KLV started Preschool I’ve met lots of moms. In general they all seem great but it’s only natural to form some assumptions/opinions. I question whether I am only seeing them for their greatness or their weaknesses.
Equally what are their perceptions of me? 
I’d love to know, honestly I would.

  1. Oh it can really get to a person if they think too much about what others might be thinking about them. I think we all look at other moms and think they are doing a great job (or perhaps not), but we do not know everything. I think what matters most is what we think about ourselves. I hope you are doing great! Have a good day!

  2. You seem very calm, rational and even tempered. You live in the moment and have it all together, girl. That's how I see you, from a blogger's perspective. :)

  3. Ha! I'd love to know what my son's preschool Mom's think too! I'm usually in workout clothes, no makeup and I'll talk their ear off if they'll let me! I'm probably viewed as the crazy workout, never close her mouth, Momma! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  4. I feel disappointment that I can't be more involved in this sense. I feel disconnected totally from that world. The daycare lady (a wonderful woman who has watched Parker since he was 5 months old) is the one that drops and picks him up at preschool. I only get to go there if I take time off work. I don't get much time off work, so I save it for the big parties and such. The moms have a mom group and everything, but I have to work.

  5. It's kind of hard for me to just put myself out there. Not that I can't be social but I find myself observing a lot...which can sometimes make you think things about people that might not be true. Usually it's only when I've made a really connection with someone that I become more forwar.d

  8. Oh sometimes the expressions on people's faces say it all. For example, when my kid isn't behaving in the store, I can see the look of either empathy or scorn on people's faces. When my son is an angel, I see people looking at me like I hung the moon. Honestly, sometimes I wish we didn't always form an opinion about someone right off the bat, but I guess it's human nature. How do I see you? Oh, I see you as this funny, patient, witty, mom who likes to ponder about the world, oh and loves great music too!

  10. Hey you are so funny! I just went to Marissa's blog and you commented what I was thinking. Just when I saw the beginning of the post I began singing that song. I have to laugh because often when you comment before me you often say what I want to say. Great minds realy do think alike. :)

  11. I don't know...I don't think I'd really like to know what other's snap judgements of me are, although maybe that would be a key to self improvement...

    I've been behind over here lately! I hope all is well in TV.

  12. I think we all have greatness & weakness - and we can be our own worst critics. You are a bright & beautiful mom! Your words hold weight and you're helping people think which is not the easiest feat to accomplish.

  13. Oops...I also wanted to say, we can be our own worst critic, if we let ourselves be. I'm talking to myself here for sure.

  14. It was really interesting this chain of comments on this post. I think whether you're a mom, a friend, a person, we all make assumptions, judge, observe, take it in. Would you really want to know what they thought? I don't think I would. Ignorance is bliss.
