The Spinal Tap Maternal Nagging Scale


11/11/11 is Veteran's Day. (Here we pause, with heads bowed, to acknowledge the awesomeness of our armed forces. And also their families, who make an equally important sacrifice for all of us. Military mommies past and present - we honor you and the fact that you are badass ninjas. Sincerely, Kate & Lydia)


For a really great post about being a mommy and a veteran, we suggest clicking over to Stark.Raving.Mad.Mommy for her very cute and funny take on how Basic Training and being a mom are pretty much the same thing.

Today is also Nigel Tufnel Day. And since it only happens once, we are going to commemorate it. So we thought it would be a really good idea to share with you again the Mommyland Spinal Tap Maternal Nagging Scale. We created this with the hilarious and brilliant Pregnant Chicken (rated as Babble's #1 Pregnancy Blog in the entire, freaking world), whom we love so much that it borders on unhealthy.

Because as mommies, we nag. Not because we want to. But because apparently, you have to tell kids every day that shoes are required for school. You might think they'd know that already. But no. So here's the scale that we created that tracks how we must nag our most beloved, but often forgetful offspring.

  1. Argh... I hate to do this to you... but there is typo is the 1-3: "disapprove" not "dissaprove." I'm a psycho proof-reader. But I want a shirt with this on. I'm a foot taper. I live in the 4-6 range.

  4. Haha, you pointed out their typo, then you made one. Unless you really meant you put tape on your foot. Otherwise, it's foot tapper.

  5. @Sloan I had to giggle. "shirt with this on IT" and "foot TAPPER". Looks like Mommy brain struck after your first sentence. Happens to the best of us. :-)

  10. Where does doing things that annoy and embarrass them fall. Revenge is sweet, especially when they are teens.

  11. Sadly that's also my husbands scale of nagging required to get me to clean up. Apparently dishes are supposed to get cleaned daily. So I suppose my daughter gets it from me when she picks up one card from the deck she throws on the floor and then looks at me like I'm crazy when I tell her- with my dial turned up to 11 - that she needs to pick up this one, and this one... And this one... And ...

  12. USAF Wife... mother of 2 under 2.... hubby deployed since early June won't be back until late Feb. I feel like a ninja about to throw some of those stars right into the mouths that all that noise is coming from. The nagging spectrum is fantastic......... I do the cover my face and say "OH MY LORDDD" on a regular basis. 4-6 range? Thats pretty good! haha <3
