Who cares what its technically called. She put it out on the internet for everyone to read.And this isn't an "article" that she "published" intending to spread some kind of information or opinion to others. It's a vent posted on her personal blog.
Oh and FTR I laughed a lot at GO the **** To Sleep.
That didn't bother me in the least. Its a humorous piece...and its not meant to be read to kids.
Sorry for the serial posting...i was very busy all weekend and just catching up.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
From what I remember of Lisa, she did have a very abrasive tone when posting here. I'm not entirely surprised by her blog post, sadly.
I'm sure all of us here can say we've had a moment where the dam broke, and we kind of flipped our lid. But what she described wasn't just flipping her lid - she went way past that to a very dark territory, with the "I'm going to kill you" comment. Honestly, even in my worst ppd moments I never, ever would have said that to my kids. That part bothers me even more than the swearing.

I tell DD that I'm going to brain her, however it's said in jest when she's being a pain. She definitely pushes my buttons too and I have had a couple of explosive moments with her. We all have different personalities, as do our children so of course what I think is OK others may not and vice versa.
When my DD is playing up and acting like a demon, I sometimes do feel completely isolated like she's the only disruptive child in the history of the world! Haha OTT but it's true and it's good to hear I'm NOT alone.
I don;t feel sorry for the kids either - personally I don;t think they'll ever read it BUT if they do, why would they feel hurt by it and not take it in jest? I know I would if it was my Mother.
Like I said, different personalities.
