A New Word...

I have invented a new word:

MOM-SNOB

mom·snob
noun \ˈmämˈsnäb\

Definition :

1 A woman who, after engaging in the act of birthing a child, automatically assumes they are more important and more mature than women who have not engaged in this activity
2 A woman who, after engaging in the act of birthing a child, decides it is no longer necessary to speak with or befriend women who have not engaged in this activity

— mom·snob \-ˌer\ noun
— mom·snobby \-ish\ adjective

Sentence Example: If I ever beat infertility, I will never become a mom-snob.

So true! All of my "mom-friends" have this secret society that I am not privileged to. Why is that?! It’s like….oh you don’t know anything because you’re not a mom! Oh....and why is it that as soon as a friend finds out she is pregnant or has just given birth suddenly her friends on facebook double? Is that because others finally think you are worthy of being their friend now that you are a mother? I don’t get it…I wonder if anyone else has noticed that.

Know a lot of these myself. Its interesting though because even IF couples don't seem to want to be friends with other IF couples...its very odd. Like this post though, its true!! :)
