We all know that most of our men like the football. And some of us #RealityMoms are even aware that there’s some sort of football type contest that goes on this weekend every year. We asked our #RealityMoms what they’d rather be doing than watching it…
“I’d rather be getting a butt implant.” – Joey Fortman, The Original #RealityMom
“I’d rather get a flu shot.” – JenniferWeedon Palazzo, MomCaveTV
“I’d rather be home alone with 2 kids for a week, with no backup support…OH WAIT, THAT’S ME RIGHT NOW.” – Glynis Ratcliffe, The Joy of Cooking for Little A$$holes
“I’d rather they just give Smirking Tom the trophy, run the commercials like a movie, with a super-sized half-time show.” – Serendipity Indigo, Mother of Serendipity
“I’d rather read nothing but depressing Facebook posts and political rants.” – Tonia Clark, WhyNotMom.com
“I’d rather be eating all the food while standing awkwardly in the corner.” – Rhiannon Giles, Rhiyaya
But none of our other #RealityMoms planned to avoid SuperBowl better than Darla: “Ten years ago I spent 12 hours in labor during the SuperBowl. I have a very confusing soundtrack in my head from that day, since we had a HypnoBirthing CD playing on a constant loop (think meditation) and the doc coming in every few minutes to give hubby relevant play and score information. Every now and then I might utter, in my calm and centered voice, ‘Guys, can we please stay focused, here?'” – Darla DeMorrow – Heart Work Organizing
And of course, we have the outliers. Brooke Takhar from Miss Teen USSR and Shannan Younger from Between Us Parents are all in for a weekend of men, food, and football. Well…that and Nicky Omohundro from Little Family Adventure, who’s skipping the whole thing and heading to Disney World. Well…to each their own. We hope that all of our #RealityMoms are enjoying the weekend the way they want to.
