Parenting. It’s not the easiest road, and there are a million choices to make. I’ve found that often, I’m not making the most popular choice. Often I’m the Odd Mom Out… and I don’t see anything wrong with that.
Most people use disposable diapers – I chose to cloth diaper. Women push themselves to make breastfeeding work at any cost – I stopped worrying about it when my supply was low. Many moms (especially in blogland) make the choice to stay home – I work full-time. Kids are put into fancy Montessori programs or rigorous preschools – I don’t even know if I’ll be sending Abbie to preschool. So, so many times, I’ve been the fish out of water, and I don’t see it stopping any time soon. I’m a firm believer that we all make our own choices in parenting, and I’m not going to cave to the most popular one. I’m the Odd Mom Out.
That’s why I was so excited to preview Bravo’s new scripted show, Odd Mom Out. Now, I’ve been a Bravo fan for years (it was a deciding factor in every TV package we’ve ever picked). I’ve always loved their reality shows, but I love that Bravo is taking it scripted… and the results are hilarious. After all, the network that gave us real housewives definitely knows the how ridiculous moms can get.
Odd Mom Out focuses on Jill Weber, a New York mom that doesn’t quite fit in with her in-laws. Instead of being worried about maintaining appearances in the upper echelon of New York society, Jill loves so many of the things we all do – old diners, girl talk with her (awesome) best friend, and dancing around in her underwear. Pretty sure we’ve all done that one. So while in my crowd, Jill would fit right in, among her in-laws and the parents at her kids’ schools… she’s the Odd Mom Out. And you know what? She OWNS it.

Have you ever felt like the Odd Mom Out?
If something you do as a mom is working for you and your family, keep doing it, I say. No matter what, there will always be someone who disagrees and disapproves.
So, so true.
