Who are we?

We are moms. We are bloggers. We are writers. We write mom lit, chick lit, and parent humor. Who knows what else will come out of our brains and on to the page.

Writing Prompt #2-Disclaimer

Dear bloggers,

           Moms Who Write and Blog is more than just a blog full of posts by mom bloggers, we're a community of support for mom bloggers. In addition to bringing you laughs and sarcastic parental advice we want to help you succeed. We've developed these Writing Prompts to connect with you and also spark your creativity to write. We hope to inspire you!

                 Warm Regards, Lisa and Adrienn



This Writing Prompt Session is open to any blogger.

This session's topic: Write a disclaimer or letter warning someone or something about someone or something.

Here's an example from Adrienn,



Recent events have forced me to write up this disclaimer.

I plan to carry copies of it with me at all times, and hand them out on a need-to-be-warned basis.

Because I’m pretty sure our real estate agent found a new line of work after helping us buy our new house and then sell our old one.

And I am more than certain our recent encounter with a camper salesman could have ended with Dennis someone getting throat punched.

Dear person who is about to have to deal with my husband,

            This disclaimer has been issued to you because you are about to engage in a business transaction with my husband.  I feel it my duty, as his wife, to warn you in advance what you can expect over the coming days, weeks, months…or God help you, years.  He is not quick at making decisions.  You might think he has made up his mind, but that’s just foolish of you.  He will spend the next few days thinking of all the reasons why he should’ve went with something else.  Oh. But you already wrote up the deal?  And secured the loan for this one?  That means nothing.  He will probably be back in today to have you show him some other things.  And then show him the one he already picked.  Then that one. And back to the one he picked.  This will go on and on until eventually you will just hand him the keys or give him the lock box code because you just can’t take it anymore.  And he will call you and ask you questions that you don’t have the time or knowledge to answer.  Or ones he could answer himself but he likes to hear you tell him the answer even though it’s the same goddam answer.  And if you require some sort of payment over the internet he will be calling you to pay by phone because he’s a pain in the ass.  And he will likely call you tomorrow to make sure you got his payment even though you told him he was all set yesterday.  He will expect you to treat him like he is the only customer you have.  Because it’s all about him.  And no matter how long the process of purchase takes, when he finally settles on something, he will find faults with his decision and blame you. 

Sorry in advance,

Adrienn Hunt

How I handle dirty looks and unsolicited parenting advice from strangers in Walmart without accidentally dropping canned foods on their foot by Michelle of Crumpets and Bullocks


Playing the Autism Card: I've seen many versions of the Autism cards that parents hand out in public places on the Internets. For those who don't realize, a common theme in the lives of parents of children on the autism spectrum is to take our kids in public, I know, gasp, and receive a very inviting welcome from the strangers of the world. By inviting welcome, I mean a bunch of dirty looks, criticism on our parenting skills, criticism of our children, and basic asshattery.
 

(You can read one of my previous posts about that: Dear Dr. Phil Wannabes of Walmart.)

I don't think people who intervene in that manner are ignorant of autism. I think they are mean people. They are just assholes. Think about it. Your kid is freaking out. You are almost in tears, kneeling down trying to tame your child while watching and handling the other kids.
