Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid - you think it but this web site says it

Admit it - there are times when we've all wanted to shout "Shut up already about your perfect kid" when a "typical" mom is going on and on about little Bobbie's 4.0 GPA, soccer championship or violin recital. Well, there actually IS a web site named Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid and it is a hoot. It is a site "for parents of special and other 'imperfect' kids designed by 'imperfect' parents."

The two sisters who started this web site and launching what they call the Movement of "Imperfection." In their own words:

This long-overdue movement is allowing parents of "non-perfect" kids to come out of their messy closets and talk about the accomplishments of their children. With bumper magnets like "My Bipolar Kid Loves Me AND Hates Me," we're wearing our badges of imperfection and telling the world with humor and grace, "We're not always O.K., but that's O.K." " I encourage you to check it out - clearly we are not alone!

What do you think? Are you ready to join the movement?? Should we start our own chapter??

Oh, please - I'll be a charter member of your chapter. You have NO idea what an absolute disaster of a parent I am.

Great - you can be president! I'm sure you are a fine parent.
