The Many Faces of Motherhood

Monday, April 19, 2010

As you all know, I have a propensity to give out monikers.  Well, it's a family trait I suppose.  I've said before I have a couple of nicknames that the boys (including BDC) like to use to refer to me.  Today they added to the list.  My boys, they really love me.

So I thought I would share the many faces and names of my motherhood.

Rob Mom Zombie
This is a  new one.  Since the baby has made her arrival, I have been running on empty.  So, as I walk, and breathe, and sleep standing up, I have become Mom Zombie according the boys.  I am certain all moms can identify with this one.


   
Identifiers:
No Sleep
The Walking Dead
Could Eat the Face off ALL Family Members


GODMomZilla
Momzilla is a beastly Mother.  She stomps through the house screaming with angry feet  and breathing fire.  MomZilla typically rears her head at least one week a month.

Identifiers:
Rage
Screaming
Jumping Down the Throats of the Innocent
Knocking Shit Over and Demanding The Innocent Clean it Up.

Mommalicious
This siren typically graces BDC with her presence on date nights.  When I walk out of the bedroom dressed for dates the boys call me Mommalicious.




Identifiers:
Real clothes (Any form of PJs do not qualify)
Hair did!
Makeup DONE!


Last but certainly not least...
Moms-a-lot
This is the face of Motherhood seen the most.  The short order cook, the chauffeur, the butt wiper, the keeper of the schedules, the homework helper, the discipline giver, the unappreciated, the grocery getter, the catch all.

Identifiers:
The Doer of all things MOM.
Requires copious amounts of Caffeine.



So tell me, what do yours call you?  What are the faces of your xxx-hood?

I love all those nicknames! And I remember my Mom Zombie days well!

ScoMan said...

Great monikers. Especially the Mum Zombie one.

BigSis said...

I love these. I find myself being Moms-a-lot a lot, but I'm working on being Mommalicious from time to time. I like that one!

Ian said...

If my kid started calling me Mom then we'd have some issues

Daffy said...

*Sigh* I really need a cape. I think I could traverse life with much more fluidity if I had a cape....

June said...

Great job on the buttons B!
I am particularly fond of MomZilla... I think I have seen this Bish around here a few times.

Being called "Mother" instead of Mom is usually an indication that I am being a little uptight and pissy. Imagine that??

Salt said...

Yay you're back!! :)
You have some seriously creative kids over there....Mom Zombie? I can't yet relate to it, but I love it.

Love the buttons you made!

Viv said...

Mine will goose-step, salute and shout, "Heil, Mutti." It seems much like your MomZilla description, except, it happens around the time I *need* sleep. Caffeine only makes me feel queasy and shaky at that time, and I *need* to crash but can't. (see your description of a Mom Zombie above. ;))

Mrsblogalot said...

I love these! I'd like to think of myself as mommalicious.

Maybe you can make a denialicious one for me?

Michelle said...

What a great post. I'm pretty sure I hit all of these most days.

Erin said...

FAB-U-LOUS! Kinda reminds me of my post from last week (I Yam What I Yam, Which is Not Just a Mom)....going to tweet this. I think there are some bloggers w/ these actual names, LOL!

;-)

I think I am mostly MomZilla.

Holly said...

Hilarious! Unfortunately, Momzilla and Mom Zombie and making too many appearances here. I definitley need a dash of Momalicous!

*LLUVIA* said...

LOL!

These are all great!!! I love Momzilla the best!

Nancy C said...

Love it. My kids are too little for such cleverness, but they understand Momzilla all too well on certain days.

A 2 Z said...

Passing by from SITS. Wow what a unique blog you have. I love your sense of humor! I'm a follower!

MindyMom said...

Love them all! (and know them all well too)

MiMi said...

OMG, I'm all of em except for mommalicious. How sad is that?
I mostly resemble a "hippmomapus" though.

gayle said...

I am sure my girls would say that I have been them all! I don't believe them of course!1

Imaginative Me said...

Awesome! I remember my MomZombie days! Don't miss those. Mine are still pretty young to have nicknames for me yet. So far the cutest is when they call me by my first name. Still learning basic vocabulary but can pronounce Jessica with perfect clarity! LOL! Kids rock!

drollgirl said...

bah! these are so true!

i don't have kids, but my cats know me as THE PROVIDER, THE PETTER, and THE PUNISHER.

Danielle said...

That is awesome! They are all great. My daughter is too young still, but my work used to call me blondezilla whan I was blonde and mean!

Mammatalk said...

Real clothes? LOL! Not sure if I have any of those. So happy to hear the baby was born. Wishing you a good night's rest soon!

Alison said...

My kids threaten theirs friends with the Nazi-Mom they have...you know..."Don't fuck up at my house..she's a Nazi and will kill you" I am very proud of that status. I also relate to MomZilla..she is a dear friend...LOL

Shell said...

Lately, I feel like Flakey Mommy. I can't remember shit.

Copyboy said...

Love Rob Mom Zombie. If I had a name I'd be weird-o-palooza.

Tgoette said...

Though I really like Momzilla, I think my "Dadosaurus Rex" might give you a run for your money. LOL!

Ed said...

You kind of sound like that Cybil chick.

Just sayin

carissajaded said...

haha i love this. I have many faces too, but I would have to think on them a while to make them life-appropriate.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Haha, I must always be the zombie mom, since I'm perpetually ready to eat someone's face off! LOL

Momma Fargo said...

I love it! Multiple personalities. If you lived in Canada...they don't recognize that disease...just sayin'.
